    Yeah, I saw this the other day. Pretty amazing!

    Didn't they lop off a couple of hundred pounds off the CTS for 2014? Put that darn six banger in an ATS and look out!

    yeah I saw that vid last week, pretty sweet... but I noticed it had a full roll-cage installed. I wonder if it had any other modifications or if the same was done to the V1 when it was tested.

    They shaved about 300 pounds off of comparable base model CTS for 2014 compared to 2013.

    I wonder what a stock first gen with today's technology tires would put down. Like a Michelin Pilot sport cup or PS2 or Super Sport compared to the much hated and terrible F1 runflat.

    It is bigger than the V1 and about the same weight with a heavier engine...

    I call shenanigans.

    Take a V1, eliminate the rubber bushings, give it a posi differential, a real flywheel, and watch it smoke the Vsport.

    More horsepower, more torque, and 10 years to work on suspension technology...

    Big surprize it's faster but not by that much. People say it's a smaller engine but ocne you add Forced induction that is no longer true, this could be considered artificial displacment.

    Bottom line is it is cool and it would be cool to see this drive train in the XTS.

    Would have been better if they twin turbo'ed a V8 though, it would have spanked this car.

    And then do the same for the VSport. What's the problem? Stock for stock, it's faster. So what? Progress. About the same weight and the TTV6 has more power...

    Re: 2014 #Cadillac #CTSVsport recorded a lap almost 6 seconds faster than the 1st gen

    All in all....as CTSV_Rob said...10 more years worth of R&D, technology & racing experience (Corvette, CTS-V, & GM Performance)...all the lessons learned from the V1 & V2...~20+ more hp to boot...and "only" 6 seconds faster. Is it just me...or does that seem a little "under-whelming". Or am I just being un-realistic?

    BTW...to keep all things equal...was it the same driver for the VSport as it was for the V1 'Ring lap? Some may argue this point....however it is just another controllable variable that could rule out some quantifable variances on that incredibly technical course.

    Either way....6 seconds....hmmm....

    I can tell you that a V1 with 4 people in it (two of them over 250) on half-worn A/S tires will do at least a 9:04...
