Wagon Wednesday: 2014 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon

When it comes to modern station wagons, the Cadillac CTS-V Sports Wagon and the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG are the two most coveted ones. Both have powerful V8 engines that send their power to the rear wheels. Both handle and stop like proper sports cars but add the functionality of a long roof. Unfortunately we, as the American car buying public, have given up on station wagons. I will predict that some day wagons will once again become popular, but in the mean time we are all about cross-overs. Sad.
The good thing is that of the several hundred CTS-V Sport Wagons that were built, one [sc name=”ebay” itemid=”252488320414″ linktext=”is now on eBay”]. 556 horsepower, optional Recaro seats, Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels, it’s all there. If there is a downside is that it is equipped with the less desirable, but arguably better, automatic transmission.

The really good news is that it is for sale by owner, the original owner, and it has only 4250 miles on the odometer. The vehicle history comes up clean, too.

we bought this car after dreaming of owning it for years now own it for 2 years almost and found our self’s not driving it . Did few hundred miles this year and and as of 8/8 we are at 4300 miles , we do use it on weekends for a ice cream run as we call it 🙂 so milage goes up very little every week all original ,1 owner ,wife drove it 2 times ,no smoking . you are welcome to look at it in person , its as the day we bought it. covered with original gm cover , garage kept in winter , no racing or burnouts , you will be happy.  questions   860 597 XXXX if you are looking at this car then you must know or will find out soon that KBB and or other car value services are NOT accurate not even close to what these cars are selling for,there were only 2k made in 4 year run and only about 400 in 2014 .i’m also not a dealer   can’t take trades or get you loan . I lowered price to what I would have accepted the lowest offer to be. Will not sale it for any less

This could be the lowest mileage CTS-V in existence. The asking price of $66,000 is not far from the original price as new. The question is, what do you do with once you buy it? Do you drive it? Do you put it in a bubble and hope that one day you will double your money?

    The first picture illustrates so well why I have never been able to warm to this particular wagon: C and D pillar have different angles, the D – or, by size, “bridge” – pillar actually has two on its own. It looks incredibly messy. And am I allowed to say that a Cadillac in the top 2 of “most coveted” wagons sounds…eh…ambitious?

      That moment when you realize that nearly all modern cars are pretty homely.

        Indeed they are. I can’t think of a single new mass produced vehicle that I think is beautiful.

            I was about to post something eerily similar. I was headed in a slightly another direction, but same difference…

            I posted the GTV because I can envision a reality where I own one. This, while beautiful, is far less likely to find its way into my garage.

      I would have to get this car in black just to minimize the visual impact of that scatter of angles. So close to being such a good design.

        It’s either just trying too hard to stand out (lacking the one good, coherent idea to do so), or a three year old managed to draw it just roughly right.

      I don’t understand why Cadillac deliberately created such a large and unattractive blind spot with that D-Pillar.

        They didn’t want people to think that it’s a station wagon. They wanted people to think that it’s a “sport wagon”, so they added more sport, and everyone knows sport is slanted D-pillar.

    The ‘girder’ between the shock towers looks like something I might have made. Is this OE? Typical GM to take a vehicle to 98% and then mail in the rest.
