    High Res 09V photos from Fontana

    I have been swamped lately and have not had a chance to post these images.

    I went to the Fontana get together and I took some shots of the 09 V and the V that set the record in Germany.

    These images are full size so you can make out a lot of the interior.

    Enjoy (I know I did).

    p.s. My 06 V was bought back by GM as a lemon. I am sadly not going to be getting an 09V. We ended up getting two cars as replacements. Both are 08's and neither compete with the CTS-V. I tried driving all the other cars and I could NOT see myself in ANY of them. So I went a TOTALLY different direction as you can see in this photo.

    Awesome, thanks.

    In black the hood bulge is not nearly as noticable as the gray colored test car, I'm wondering if that's good or bad.

    High Res, nice work! That's the only way to truly get a feel for the interior. It looks like there are a few plasticky bits, but there are a lot of high quality parts too; enough to ignore the not so nice parts. I don't care if the stitching isn't real leather (maybe it is?), it looks quite nice. All I need now is a drive and a price and someone to bail me out of my 06 lease. Maybe GMAC will have one of those -get out early if you buy a GM vehicle deals-. Maybe I'll just call every day and ask them.

    That fuzzy synthetic fabric doesn't belong on the steering wheel IMO. It detracts from the overall interior appearance. If you want to see something that looks classy take a look at the new M3 steering wheel covered in quality black leather with contrasting red and blue stitching. And I'm sure the grip works just fine with sweaty hands.

    The fuzzy wheel won't be standard so you don't have to get it Personally I think it looks great. If it's good enough for the super cars then it's good enough for me.

    I'm pretty sure it was suede. It felt pretty good and it felt like it would not slip when driving aggressive.

    Thanks for the pic's forgot to say that earlier. Anybody else notice the front calipers were discolored. Looks like they have seen some serious heat.

    Nice pics. I'm from the 2008 CTS forum. Was posted over there about these pics. I sure would like those CTS-V wheels on the regular MY 2009 CTS we're going to order. Lewis

    I will be selling my stock wheels immediately. I will have my wheels for the car, before I actually get the car. Let me know if you want them.

    Worth considering. Any idea what kind of a deal you're going to make on them ? Lewis

    Another question, is the CTS-V wheels 18"? Seemed like I remember the V has 19".
    Look forward to hearing from you. Lewis
