Great car, but add a V to make it a fantastic car.

I wouldn't be surprised if the CTS-V got the new 8.1 tho then 500hp would be a good number.

Also im not expecting any more Super Charged anything from GM... Maybe Turbo'* and maybe a deal with Squires (in the states)

I'm just not feeling the love for the Caddy. But then again I haven't sat in one lately.

The front camo does a reasonable job of concealing the hood bulge that accommodates the Corvette ZR1'* 600-some horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V-8'* blower (for the CTS-V, the engine may be detuned to somewhere around 580 horsepower
Bulge in the hood how do they know....

that Blown 6.2 never made it back from Germany... didn't work. DONE..

remember that Vett the red one.


Just expect caddy to go the route of ford and farm out the power.

The new CTS is just gorgeous, and with the 304 HP direct injected V6, its moves too...the exhaust note is pretty amazing too.

Good for Cadillac....I love the damn car...just love it.

Also, on the next Vette...

The ZR1 will first appear in January 2008 at the Detroit auto show, with the production version set to go on sale later next year as a 2009 model. GM has been developing the car for several years, using a supercharged version of the new 6.2-liter small-block V-8 used in the 2008 Corvette, which reportedly will be called the LS9.
