Cadillac CTS-V
Cadillac CTS-V
0 to 60: 3.9 seconds
Top speed: 190 mph

The CTS-V is a rarity in the supercar ranks for two reasons: Cadillac brags about its top speed in TV commercials, and you might actually want to own one. Cadillac's line of V-series high-performance models come in three flavors -- sedan, coupe, and sportwagon -- any one of which you could use to pick the kids up at school or go to the grocery store. All three have the same base price -- $63,600 -- but my favorite for looks and utility is the sportwagon. Just to prove the CTS can go around corners, GM ran one at Germany's famed Nurburgring and set a record for a production sedan on factory tires.
