So all they have to do , is hit people with a bargain price . This big , supercharged , 556 hp monster sedan will start sale next November for 59,995 $ . Now , you may call it expensive . But it is not . This is what I call "a bargain of life" ! Because if you think about it , a BMW M5 which is way more less powerful and slower than the big Caddy , and costs 85,000 $ . Even if you turn up to Cadillac's high-performance line-up , this CTS-V is the cheapest and the fastest ! The less powerful XLR-V costs 40,000$ more than the CTS-V . And now the irrelevant STS-V with 86 hp less than the CTS-V is 80,000$ . So GM has made the perfect combination of "cheap , beast" .
