[quote="Hot Rod Magazine Sept. 04"It seems the CTS-V was only the start of cadillacs performance assault. Caught during recent testing on Germany'* Famed Nurburgring (which according to international treaty, must be referred to as "famed) several new V series Cadillacs are coming.

Unlike the CTS-V which uses the 400HP LS6, the STS-V and the XLR-V will both rely on a Supercharged 4.6L DOHC 32 valve northstar V8. GM isn't saying a think about this engine yet, but we assume the SC is an Eaton Roots-style Blower with an intergrated intercooler. Naturally aspirated the Northstar makes 320 HP, and we expect abotu 425HP with the huffer. Even more thrilling is a more powerful version of the already stout CTS-V, The "CTS-Super V, or the CTS-V Plus" will likely get the LS7 version of the 6.0L all aluminum pushrod making dang near 500 HP, keeping the CTS competitive with such badasses as the upcoming 500HP V-10 BMW M5, and outstripping the supercharged 476HP mercedes E55[/quote}

Picture....
