This is the new Cadillac CTS Coupe, which will go on sale in the US in the spring.
General Motors says the CTS Coupe will form the centrepiece of Cadillac’s line-up, as the firm aims to appeal to a younger audience.
The CTS Coupe - launched at today's LA motor show - is almost identical to the 2+2 concept car from the Detroit show in 2008. It shares the same wheelbase as its saloon sister car, but sits 51mm lower and is 51mm shorter. Only the instrument panel, centre console, headlamps, front bumper and grille carry over from the saloon model.
Just one engine will be offered at launch: a 3.6-litre direct-injection V6, which produces 300bhp. It is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, but a six-speed auto with steering wheel-mounted shift buttons is optional.
Other standard features include sports performance brakes, a limited-slip differential and StabiliTrak, Cadillac’s advanced electronic chassis control system.
Standard equipment includes 14-way adjustable Recaro sports seats, sat-nav, Bluetooth and MP3 connectivity, a rear-view camera and keyless entry.
The firm has confirmed a high-performance V version will be launched later in 2010.
Cadillac is currently reviewing its strategy for Europe, and no decision on whether the CTS Coupe will be sold here has been made.
