Cadillac’s hot CTS-V could be coming to the UK in right hand drive after all, according to new European distributor Kroymans.

Initially, the Dutch company claimed that the 400bhp M3 rival would not be available in Britain but after taking control of European Cadillac and Chevrolet operations on 1 October it claims to be weighing up costs. Other models could also be available for British buyers, including the XLR roadster (pictured right) and SRX off-roader.

General Motors meanwhile still has no plans to take over the import duties itself. European President recently told Autocar that the numbers didn't make sense. 'We're going to concentrate on Vauxhall, Opel, Daewoo and Saab for now' he said.

In the meantime, if Cadillac does return to Britain the sales duties are likely to be handled by two dealers, out of a total of 15 planned across Europe.
