Will compete in the SCCA World Challenge GT Series

Cadillac's return to motorsports is one step closer as the company has just released the first batch of pictures for the CTS-V racing coupe.

Jointly-developed with Pratt & Miller, the car is specifically designed to compete in the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) World Challenge GT Series. While details won't be released until Monday, the CTS boasts carbon fiber body work, a ventilated hood, an aggressive diffuser, and a massive rear wing.

Following its debut in Detroit, Cadillac will begin testing the car at the Sebring International Raceway. If everything goes according to plan, Johnny O'Connell and Andy Pilgrim will race the car in the first SCCA WC GT event in March.

CTS-V Coupe Race Car Photography

Cadillac today released the first photographs of the CTS-V Coupe race car, which will debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday, Jan. 10. Cadillac announced last month it was re-entering the Sports Car Club of America World Challenge GT racing series for the 2011 season, which begins March 25-27 in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Johnny O'Connell, a three-time GT1 champion in the America Le Mans Series, and Andy Pilgrim, who won the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT class in a Cadillac, will be behind the wheel of the CTS-V racecars. The first on-track tests will be conducted in late January at Sebring International Raceway.
