    Anyway, I still want it as soon as it's released.
    Agreed. Lutz was saying suck the doors off an M5. Thats a tall order. I saw the new V-10 at the track. It is nice. I think 90K base. If the new "V" is more than 60K, I'll be bummed. Especially if it only has 525HP. Yeah, I said only.

    Car Magazine in England insists that it will be LS-7 power and that the hood bulge is to acomodate 4 wheel drive somehow, interesting read.

    Re: Is this it?

    still not thrilled by the DTS looking rear,too flat and just wrong proportions.
    I'm not impressed by the distinctive looks of the new V.

    Seriously,you really have to look hard(OK,not from the front) to notice it.
    The current V's rear quarters panel have more bulge to it and give it its muscular look.
    Oh well,let's wait and see...

I am sure they are looking for feedback prior to releasing the final version. Remember, change is good. Not everyone will like it, but it will grow on you.

    Go back to the CTS or STS-V forums. Rather yet, just go away.

    Re: Is this it?

    I'm liking the new V. Almost all cars grow on me, so starting with like is a good spot (although a few angles look weird). I didn't like the first CTS pics and now I'm liking it. Disapointed with 525hp. Motor Trend was saying 600 recently. If it's going to stomp the M5 or an AMG it needs more horses, or a very high torque number. The reg. CTS has 300 horses and it's acceleration numbers are pretty disappointing. The 335 (much lighter) beats the CTS to 60 by almost a second.
    I'll be looking at the auto to shut up the wife (I don't like our stick anyway), but they need to stay close to the outgoing's price or I'll be out of the game.

    Fred, 525-550 hp, 59k. That's my prediction.

    My prediction is pretty close:

    Horsepower (hp) = 525-535
    Torque (ft-lbs) = 480-500
    Weight > (greater than) 3850 lbs
    Price = $58,000.00 - $60,000.00
    Options = 1. moonroof/no moonroof
    2. automatic/manual
    3. 3-4 color choices (maybe black, grey, white diamond, etc.)

    And I hope that it doesn't even get offered in an AWD setup. More weight and more $$$.

    I STRONGLY suspect invoice will be $56K or under, regardless of MSRP.

    Re: Is this it?

    Guys- Consider it a *blessing* if this car gets a 525hp SC V8 to compete against a 600hp V10. It will literally take 1 hour of modding and a tune ($500 total) to be 'sucking the doors' off of a 100k M5. You have so much more flexibility with an intergrated factory blower, this car is going to be a modders wet dream. The key is that unlike an aftermarket supercharged application, this motor will have internals built to withstand forced induction and high compression. That is the expensive and time consuming part of modding that will not cost any of us a dime out of the showroom.
