Big difference between 'fastest' and 'quickest', too.

I'm the fastest

The GNX can be the quickest

I believe we mentioned the CTS-V in the other post, but it doesn't count because IT HASN'T BEEN RELEASED YET. It helps when the cars actually exist first. They can't be fast unless they are actually there.

....like ,what other post??,.....the CTS-V should absolutely be counted,it'* due to be released(they do exist,several have already been built AND road tested)in Janruary,which is a few days away ,...and just under 50 Grand,out the door,....thee fastest American sedan....is also undoubtedly the biggest automotive bargain on the Planet!

"This chassis competence is critical because the CTS-V gains speed ferociously. Cadillac suggests a 0-to-60 time of 4.7 seconds, and the car felt entirely capable of that. When we test one, we expect a quarter-mile in the low 13s at close to 110 mph and a top speed in the low 160s, unless tire durability demands a governor in the 155-mph area."- Car and Driver 9/03


Not tested yet and it'll probably be speed limited well below 160 mph.

Well if were saying american cars that have not been relaesed yet wouldn't the GTO be faster than the CTS-V, and by the definition posted above it is a sedan. Wouldn't the maybach be the fastest for international standards... high 11'* in the 1/4 if I remeber corectly
