The reason the CTS-V Sport Wagon is so comfortable on a track is because Caddy's engineers secured it with a bunch of tech to make it fun for even the most suspect of drivers. Most important is the magnetic ride control—a lightning-quick suspension system that keeps the car under control at all times. Beneath that are the Michelin Pilot PS2 tires, which were specifically altered for the CTS-V (the Porsche Panamera rocks similar rubber). But the piece of tech most people will use is the six-speed automatic. Able to be operated via the steering-wheel-mounted shifters, this is the transmission that was used when the CTS-V made its now-legendary Nurburgring lap. We'd rather row our own gears using the six-speed manual, but if you need to drive an autobox, there are worse options.
