The CTS-V version was produced in sedan, coupe, and station wagon — it was the latter that became a participant in drag racing.
The rival of the rear-wheel-drive station wagon was the rear-wheel-drive coupe Ford Mustang GT of the third generation, equipped with a 5.0-liter engine with 500 horsepower, which is combined with a racing 3-speed automatic transmission, as befits a drag car.
