With 640 horsepower, barely any of the men I encountered while test driving the 2017 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan over Labor Day weekend could believe I was really behind the wheel.

"Must be a mirage," they likely thought. "Oh, her boyfriend is in the passenger seat, it just has to be his."

Yes, despite the fact that I was driving, if my boyfriend was with me, people directed their compliments at him: "Sweet ride." "Awesome car, dude."

I guess because I'm not a "dude," I was left out of the bro club praise. I'll just go back to the kitchen now.

To be fair, I'm 24 and I look like I'm 17, so it could have had to do with my age, too. What 24-year-old girl can afford a roughly $88,000 luxury General Motors Co. (GM) Cadillac? Surely not this journalist.

Anyway, rant over. The car was awesome.

The 6.2-liter V8 engine.
The 6.2-liter V8 engine.

The CTS-V, powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, goes zero to 60 miles per hour in just under four seconds. When I hit the gas, the front wheels ever-so-slightly swerved, showing just how powerful this beast is.

Still, the rear-wheel drive and Magnetic Ride Control, automatically adapting the suspension to changing road conditions, kept this supercharged sedan tamed.

The CTS-V can reach a top speed of 200mph. For any cops reading this, rest assured, I did not push it that far. But, I did thoroughly enjoy racing all the minivans at stoplights in the suburban New Jersey town where I live.

Inside the CTS-V, notable features include a high-resolution rear camera, dual-zone climate control, a high-definition gauge cluster, voice control, Apple (AAPL) CarPlay and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The one complaint I had was with the touch-control volume, which was a bit finicky.

All in all, a rad ride that any woman would enjoy.
