    Jeremy Clarkson Reviews V2.

    "And now you are expecting the “but”. But there isn’t one...As you may have gathered, then, I like it."

    The V is priced allready in Europe, or is Clarkson assuming?

    About £47,000k. M5 for about £66,000.

    Surprised there was no mention of the bulge in the bonnet.

    Strangely, I read that story with his accent in my mind.

    This car is NOT priced in Europe as yet.

    We have one on order with the ONLY UK dealer who will sell them as an official import and it has yet to be announced.

    Alleged to be 17% under an M5.

    If the words from this guy isn't telling for the amount of improvement put into the V2 product by Cadillac/GM, nothing is. Hereally had nothing bad to say, and say he actually liked it, inside and out.

    "The Clarksometer
    You'd be mad to buy anything else"


    Note at the end of the article "PRICE £47,000 approx" which means they do not have a final price yet. Also "RELEASE DATE December"

    Wow! "American offerings are truley rubish." ...this is what he says about EVERY state side ride i've seen him review. Almost unbelieveable to hear his praise for the Caddy, crazy how some brit has that much power over us!

    Wow, I was doing the British accent as well. Thought it was only me. Just happened to catch Top Gear on TV here today. They were doing the GT-R race vs train in Japan. I didn't know it was on TV over here. Very entertaining show.

    In an elitist, British way, he liked the V1 too, just not as much as V2...

    I suppose this new CTS-V must have reduced "bonging", which is undoubtedly the reason behind Clarkson's newfound appreciation for it.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    Power over US? No, he doesn't get any more power than what we give him.

    And the exterior must have been designed by someone with something more than a ruler.

    The CTS-V has been priced..... €112.990,- = $152.000,- in the Netherlands.
    Kind of makes the 59.995,- a true bargain
