I wanted to throw this open to discussion - I am trying to understand what is the top speed of the CTS-V in its various body styles. In the US literature I read that the autobox is limited to 284 kph (175mph) and 308 kph (191mph) in its manual version. And the European Cadillac literature says the same thing (see the first link below under specifications).
But the video below of a Dutch Auto Week journalist driving a CTS-V wagon with the autobox on a German highway shows him reaching 299 kph (185mph) and I have reached 308 kph (190mph) in Italy in my non-US CTS-V wagon and been a passanger in another one in Germany where v-max was also 308 kph and it too was an autobox. The last video is a German video (no subtitles) of a CTS-V wagon with the manual - fun to watch them cruise at speeds that we can't even dream of back in the US.
So what gives?
