Cadillac’s 2011 models arrive in Bahrain
Manama, October 25, 2010
The all-new 2011 new luxury sports coupes Cadillac CTS Coupe and CTS–V Coupe are set to arrive at National Motor Company, the automotive brand’s exclusive dealer in Bahrain.
"The addition of a coupe provides an entryway for new consumers to experience the Cadillac arts and science philosophy, especially as it is at the forefront of bringing together the highest standard of bold designs and technology,” Simon Austin, general manager at National Motor Company.
“The car’s combination of visual and technical attributes is designed to create a very compelling choice for luxury sports car enthusiasts, especially in Bahrain,” he added.
The coupe is a classic 2+2 layout bolstered with advanced technology, such as a rear-view camera system and a performance-oriented suspension system coupled to rear-wheel and all-wheel drive.
A sculpted lower front fascia includes unique brake-cooling vents, while the rear fascia is characterized by its mesh lower grilles.
LED light pipes highlight the car’s signature vertical lighting as does the rear spoiler that is integrated into the center high-mounted stop lamp. Touch-pad operation for the doors removes the need for conventional door handles, creating a clean profile.
The coupe features a classic hardtop styling, a windshield laid at a faster angle and a long, nearly horizontal back glass area combine to create a dramatic profile.
The CTS Coupe is powered by a 3.6L direct injected V-6 rated at 304 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission with driver shift control (and available steering wheel mounted shift buttons) is standard. The high-performance CTS-V Coupe receives the same, 556-horsepower 6.2L supercharged V-8 found in the landmark CTS-V Sport Sedan.
The V-Series also reaches elite levels of road-holding performance, but also maintains the poise of a luxury car in “regular” driving conditions due to Cadillac’s landmark Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest-reacting suspension technology.
The CTS Coupe’s interior features a hand-sewn accent covering the door, center storage console and instrument panel trim. Available heated and ventilated seats incorporate “thin-seat” technology for occupant comfort and enhanced rear-seat leg, knee and foot room. Fourteen-way adjustable Recaro sport seats are optional.
The coupe also offers a host of customer driven technologies, including a Bose 5.1. Cabin Surround audio system, integrated iPod/mp3 capability, 40-gig hard drive with the ability to store music and pause and replay live radio and a pop-up navigation system. – TradeArabia News Service
