2009 CTS-V Breaks the 8-minute mark on the 'ring
With a time of 7:59:32, the new CTS-V might be the fastest ever documented sedan to lap the famous track, according to this article from Motor Trend.
After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it has blitzed the times attained by its targeted Bavarian rivals... According to the German car magazine Sport Auto, the fastest an E60 M5 has lapped the 'ring was in 8:13, an E63 M6 posted an 8:09, and E92 M3 did it in 8:05.
It's a very good day for Cadillac... big kudos to GM
The V2's time is less than 4 seconds slower than the Z06, considering it is a big spacious 4 door sedan with an awesome luxury interior, thats good enough for me, if I wanted a a sports car like the GT-R I would wait for the Corvette ZR-1, which may not be quicker than the GT-R at that German race track but will certainly spank one on good ole Interstate 95. Plus let's see if that GT-R's times are real, even Car and Driver on their test of the GT-R last month stated that it was an "engineering test mule" not even a pre production car.
