Mmmm...CTS coupe and CTS-v coupe. Pointy.

Loving that Morgan Aeromax..haven't seen one in person..love the rear design.

I've only seen one Aston Martin Lagonda over the years...that was quite the radical design 30+ years ago, remember seeing it as a little kid in Road & Track.

Wait. Please tell me that's a lighting trick and those aren't YELLOW inserts in the CTS-V Coupe seats?!?!? Dear God that's tacky...

It's an option. It's carried over from the concept, it seems.

The beltline is too high over the rear wheel on the CTS coupe. There is just too much vertical space there. It makes the beefy rims look too small, and I know they aren't.

It's sex in person, especially the concept.

Dear God. It's going to be really hard for Cadillac to woo buyers from the Germans and Japanese when the taste level of GM's midwestern executives is so "pink-flamingo-meets-lawn-gnome chic."

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for increasing interior color options...but that yellow says "screaming chicken" more than it does "Standard of the World."

I would love to see GM chop three inches vertically out of the entire length of the vehicle. That alone would solve most of my design qualms with the Coupe.

The stance and wheels on the CTS Coupe Concept is pure awesomeness though.

Man I love Spykers...I see them all the time around here, surprisingly (or not). They are just so bizarre.

That Lagonda is hot, too.

As is the CTS coupe concept. Amazing how much better it looks than the production model, even though seemingly very little changed.

Cory has a RH front 3/4 shot of both the concept and production model posted, and you can see the difference. It appears the concept is proportioned differently in the problem area. It is slight, to my eye, but it is enough to cause a situation.

There are a bunch of slight differences. The concept is definitely much more attractive than the production version.
