ROAD TEST Cadillac CTS-V Coupe JR Hildebrand
WORDS & IMAGES Richard S. James
With its distinctive shape, extreme performance
and luxury, the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe proved a
hit with Chevy IndyCar driver JR Hildebrand.
ndyCar star JR Hildebrand put
Cadillac’s CTS-V Coupe through its paces
in the January 2012 issue of RACER.
It’s fair to say he was impressed...
“I was sitting at the stoplight and I
plunked it into second gear, got on it,
kicked the clutch to get the revs up and
had this thing on full opposite lock, totally
crossed up, pouring smoke off the tires, a
massive drift coming out of Sonoma
Raceway. It was shocking! That, to me, is
the epitome of what a true-blue American
hot rod should be able to do.”
That’s Panther Racing IndyCar driver
