    The CTS-V Racing Story

    Alan Cohen has always been an enthusiast of fast cars, but it was not until early 2010 when he purchased his 2009 CTS-V Cadillac that his passion escalated further.  Alan found himself at New Jersey Motorsports Park several times a month testing the performance of his car.  Over the latter part of 2010, Alan wanted to find ways to get better time around the track  and make corners faster- whether it was increasing horsepower or changing the suspension system.

    Through extensive internet research and seeking advice from other Cadillac enthusiasts, dealers and mechanics Alan initially opted to install several competition parts; all improving my time and handling of my stock track times exponentially, but as any avid track goer, he wanted more. Alan completed the installation of D3’s bolt-on racing package- increasing the horsepower and lowering the car, enabling improved speed around the track.

    In a need for a presence on the East Coast, CTS-V Racing, LLC established itself as a knowledgeable distributor of competition racing parts specifically for the Cadillac CTS-V,  as well as an auto shop at our New York facility to install those parts by a GM Cadillac veteran with 30 years of experience.  Our mission is to enable Cadillac owners in the Northeast access to a performance shop with the experience and professionalism deserved.

    2009 CTS-V Sedan - The Patriot Missile. 

    ​Many people think of the Cadillac CTS-V as a luxury car, but at CTS-V Racing, we have taken a stock 2009 CTS-V sedan and transformed it into a powerful performance machine for the race track.  Competing in events nationwide, we continuously seek ways to enhance the performance and horsepower to showcase its maximum potential on track.

    The unassuming nature of the vehicle provides the perfect cover to defeat the competition.  The only tip acknowledging the vehicles performance is the charcoal grey ventilated hood, performance wing, and matching blue calipers.  Ready for the enemy, the Patriot Missile can blast past competition with its 750 horsepower to the rear wheels.​
