Evaluation: From the Bryan Frank collection. Final year CTS-V wagon with 59,000 miles. Represented as one of one as equipped, and one of two in this color. Recently detailed and other than a small rock chip on the windshield, there aren’t any real signs of use. CARFAX Report shows damage to front in 2017, but there are no signs of damage or repair.
Bottom Line: It’s hard not to love a fast wagon, especially when it’s brown and has a manual transmission. These Caddies are also serious performers, with 0-60 in about 4 seconds, advanced Magneride suspension, and big Brembo brakes. Only about 500 CTS-V wagons got a 6-speed before production ended in 2014, and they’ve been desirable enthusiast cars since they rolled out of the factory. They simply never got cheap, and they’ve been selling near or above their original MSRP almost no matter the condition. This result in Vegas seems like a lot for a car with miles and a minor accident that blemishes its history, but the same CTS-V sold for $99,000 at Kissimmee back in January, so in buyers’ eyes its rare combination of options is more important.
