    There were two '09 CTS-Vs at California Speedway (the Cadillac Performance Experience) Saturday: the titanium car that set the 7:59 record at the Nurburgring, and a black pre-production car. The record car is fitted with the 6L90E automatic transmission! The lead engineer confirmed that the 6L90E is a double-clutch (or as he says, a "clutch-to-clutch") gearbox. Also, in case y'all ain't noticed, the wheels are attached with five lugs.

    More possibly-old news: there are optional Recaro sports seats--nice!--and optional suede on the steering wheel and manual shifter--really secure grip.

    This info is truly impressive if it is accurate. I got tired of waiting on this car and my local dealers couldn't tell me when I'd get one so I bought a Viper for a new toy. These numbers have me thinking though.....

    A dual clutch! Wow, that's news to me.

    So, no torque converter? Why wouldn't they have just used the same ratios as the manual? And, being dual clutch, wouldn't that make it, technically, still a manual. Sorta like DSG and SMG. And, with no break in acceleration, wouldn't that make it considerably faster than the stick?

    I must be interpreting "double-clutch / 'clutch-to-clutch' gear box" wrong...

    Something must have gotten lost in translation. In this case dual stands for dual-disc clutch (just like the ZR1) not for two separate clutches like a DSG.

    Even though the transmission might be very advanced it still fits in the traditional automatics with torque converter camp, not in the blazingly fast shift speeds based on two separate clutches camp that you can find on the new M3, the upcoming 911's, GT-R, etc. etc.

    The trick with the DSG is that it has two separate input shafts...1-3-5-whatever are on one, 2-4-6-whatever on the other. The next gear is preselected on the other shaft and then one clutch is disengaged and the other engaged to perform the shift. The original Ricardo design also can partially engage both clutches briefly when leaving the line to lessen driveline shock and distribute the torque across both gearsets.

    That said, a conventional automatic can be made to work very, very well especially with an engine that's got enough torque.
