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.

    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
