Jim Hudson Cadillac, the exclusive Columbia Cadillac dealer, is thrilled to announce that the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe and Wagon for the 2011 model year have both been named “Best Performance/Luxury Car” by MotorAuthority, a leading Website catering to luxury car buyers.

MotorAuthority’s “Best Car to Buy Award” is chosen from the newest sports cars, sedans and SUVs priced above $50,000. The esteemed field of finalists for 2011 honors included the Bentley Mulsanne, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Ford Shelby GT500, Infiniti M56 and Hyundai Equus.

Editors selected the nominees based on full road-test reviews. According to the website, the winner was the vehicle that editors would put in their own garages, to drive on a perfect day, on the perfect road.

“We’ve been rooting for more V-Series cars since we drove the CTS-V sedan,” said MotorAuthority Editor Nelson Ireson. “The stunning profile of the two-door CTS-V Coupe and the high-speed flexibility of the CTS-V Wagon add rubber-burning luster to a lineup filled with winning luxury vehicles.”

“Huge power, incredible handling despite the weight that comes with solid build quality and a luxurious Alcantara-swathed interior, and styling inside and out that rivals the best of any country all put the CTS-V duo at the top of our list. These are the cars we want to own ourselves,” Ireson continued.

The CTS-V Coupe and Wagon are both new for 2011, joining the popular CTS-V Sedan. All three V-Series models have a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with 556 horsepower, Brembo brakes and a Magnetic Ride Control suspension that can read and react to the road in milliseconds.

“The V-Series is the ultimate embodiment of Cadillac performance,” said Don Butler, vice president for Cadillac marketing. “The addition of the V Wagon and Coupe gives us a family of luxury sports cars that rivals any competitor in the world. We’re pleased MotorAuthority agreed by selecting the new CTS-V models as its “Best to Buy” for 2011.”
