SEMA Report: CTS Sport

CTS Sport SEMABased on the new 2008 CTS, the CTS Sport that debuted at this years SEMA show in Las Vegas shows a hint of what a sportier CTS might look like.

If this is similar to the previous CTS Sport concept from SEMA a few years ago – expect at least a few of the cues shown on this car to make it to the production CTS in the coming years.
