    Enjoyable but quite an old video.

    Also think the Vagon jumped the start to make for a better result and episode.

    Not according to Andrew Comre Picard the race driver who works on Top Gear--listen to the episode of him on The Smoking Tire podcast.

    The fact that a $65,000 American Sports Sedan can even hang with a late model Italian supercar is amazing in and of itself.

    Love that Cadillac commercial with the V coupe in front of the Ferrari on the race track, talking about licensing the shock technology to Ferrari. Very effective.

    I would love to see one with a Prius and a V side by side from the rear comparing the exhaust notes or lack thereof, and showing the Prius driver wearing a beret and smoking a pipe.

    I have read the two previous threads and they pretty much cover it.

    In case this link does not work--look for the Smoking Tire episode called "Not Top Gear" I think the quote is towards the end where they are talking about authenticity in journalism.

    First mention of the CTS-V Wagon (at El Mirage) at 1:14:25.
    And over by 1:16:10.
    Including mention of the classic GMC Syclone vs Ferrari drag race from Car & Driver.

    That's pretty cool to know that it's authentic.

    That California is an abomination. Worst rear-end on a car I think I have ever seen.

    Yeah, I've dated women with better rear ends than that. But it's another story ...
