My wife spoke to her Cadillac rep yesterday and grilled him about the CTS-V Plus and there availability. His exact quote to her was "The Plus is being made, they will be making 450 of them, cost will be around $80,000.00, only select dealers will be able to sell, they should be available around or after September 04." As everyone knows this could all be speculation by the rep but my wife seemed to think that he was sincere in there conversation. He "did not" know the exact horsepower of what the car was going to be but he speculated around 550hp. Just thought I would share with everyone.
If you want to see speculation go to the Z06VETTE.COM forum C6 thread.Talk about rabid passion! There are hundreds of potential buyers that are praying for 500 HP#s,but will probably come in around 480.Mallett and Lingenfelter are already making 600 hp V'S, but getting 100+ extra HP out of a factory smallblock and expecting it to survive through warranty periods can't be an easy task.
They can't make the 06Z(or Vplus)compete with the Blue Devil's #s (rumoured 550-600,which is also a low production unit priced near six figures),just like when they choked down the LS1 Camaros as not to diss the vettes #s..then again I never thought I'd see a kill section on a caddy forum.. but I like it
Props to the guy who said 400 is enough,you "get" it!
...In unrelated news, it seems I have the only Platinum V with silver horns. See "My SR7 install thread". New Platinum V came in today and the horns along with the bracket are "Black". Looks like it's time to break out the Krylon can.
Keep the silver horn.
You can sell the car later as a rarity. Like a baseball card printed in reverse or with a different player's name.
That's kinda what I was thinking too. Of course with some of the problems I'm having with the car now I'm starting to think they took all of the leftover parts and built my car with them Wish I knew if there was anyone else ou there who's horns were silver. Anybody??????
