American manufacturer GM debuted over the weekend the Sport Wagon version of the Cadillac CTS-V. Offering a preview of the future extended range of the CTS-V, the car was showcased at the 2010 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS).

The Wagon packs a 6.2l supercharged (Eaton Twin Vortices Series) V8 engine, mated to either a Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted shift controlsor a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual. The engine develops 556 horsepower and 747 Nm of torque. Unfortunately, no performance figures have been provided.

The CT-S Sport Wagon rides on Magnetic Ride Control and uses a Brembo / Michelin combination of brakes and tires (Pilot Sport PS2, purpose built for the CTS-V).

The exterior of the CTS-V, painted, for the first time, in Midnight Silver with Liquid Silver-finished wheels and a black chrome finish on the grille’s mesh insert, comes with a upper spoiler and center high-mounted stop lamp, unique for the show car.

On the inside, the same architecture as in the sedan version is used here. It comes with performance seats featuring perforated sueded microfiber inserts, alcantara steering wheel and large instruments with LED-lit “tracer” function in the tachometer.

Infotainment is insured by an advanced navigation system with a deployable screen, Bose 5.1 digital surround audio, factory-installed Bluetooth phone integration and a 40-gigabyte hard drive.

“The CTS-V Sport Wagon is a natural extension of both the V-Series and the CTS lineup, offering an uncompromising performance car to enthusiasts who want the extra room of a wagon,” said Don Butler, vice president for Cadillac marketing. “The V-Series Sport Wagon is another hallmark of the dramatic presence and power of Cadillac vehicles.”

The CTS-V Sport Wagon will enter production n late 2010, with market launches first in the US and then in Europe and the Middle East. It is not clear yet how much GM will charge for the new vehicle.
