2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Super V Coming? in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; On the WJR auto report this morning:
- CTS super-V
- 600 HP
- Exotic materials for the body
Wow! Talk about a new M5 killer. At 600HP the motor has to have all forged internals, and would be able to withstand 1000+hp. I dobt GM will even screw around with the hyper pistons and cast cranks for the 500hp ZO7.
Pictures elsewhere on this site....rumored that only 500 will be made
I have seen them also. The person I got e-mail response from is same person who tracked the part numbers for the FG2 shocks for me, well before they were available. Info was provided some time ago, in a long lost thread. The interesting point will be the direct from GM part. That will be a hard sell to the dealers, since it will present an interesting test of the dealer agreement GM has with it's dealers. Will be hard to convince them to let GM compete directly with them, IMO. We will see.
At 500 total units I doubt there will be too many that would even make it to dealers that wouldn't be pre-ordered or bought by GM execs/employees.
I think it's a good idea but then again I am not a car dealer and don't particularly like car dealers (no offense to those here, who are very cool and helpful). If GM wants to produce a car basically for the true rabid enthusiasts and make it super elite, I'll be right there with my checkbook. Color me enthused!
