Would You Pay $85,000 for This Virtually New Cadillac CTS-V Wagon?

It only has 362 miles on it and the rare six-speed manual transmission.


The last-gen CTS-V wagon's desirability among enthusiasts these days is no secret. It is a 556-horsepower supercharged V8-powered station wagon with rear-wheel drive and an optional manual transmission, after all. But it seems one owner has taken the CTS-V's collectability to the extreme.
