I would imagine a manual on a drag radials would launch quite well in a manual with a good driver. I would have taken either transmission - they both have their +/-. They both rule.
    Most intelligent statement I've read in the million plus A6 vs. M6 posts. Thank you...

    Re: what's faster 6Mt or 6At

    After having 2 automatics and 3 manuals, I can tell you the automatics are faster in every way except top end. Most importantly, the automatics go very fast (not full throttle) without any drama. I have to take my manual to high rpm's and loud noises to briskly accelerate away from traffic. I hate being that obvious...
    On the other hand, my wife's automatic quietly and quickly moves ahead of traffic in a stealth like manner. I love the automatics, and I think the manuals are lesser, old technology that is fun but no longer superior... Just my biased opinion.

    I wanted the more fun factor. I didn't care about anything else. The 4 V2s I had were all autos and it was time for a change. Now that there won't be a manual V3, maybe the manual V2s will be worth something someday. I am sure the manual V wagons will be sought after in a few years.

    A6 has been proven a bit faster in the 1/4. M6 is alot more fun for sure! I have an A6 only cause my thought was it's a caddy so I want the caddy ride with 500hp and ive hit 178 thought the limit was 174....guess not ....and still felt there was a little left.

    Exactly. Knowing damn good and well you'd be hammering on either one at the finish line and grinning like Wile E. Coyote the whole way.

    Congratulations on your 1,000th post and attaining connoisseur status. Does Cadillac send you a T-shirt?

    178 mph, wow! Is your V stock and about how much time and distance did it take to do it?

    Ive had my M6 up to 185 on closed desert road when it was stock. It had more left. I think it will top 200 now.

    ... what? When you say you've owned 3 manuals, I am assuming you're talking about other cars, not CTS-V manuals. You do not ever have to take the manual to high RPMs to briskly accelerate away from traffic in a CTS-V. You understand the manual CTS-V puts down more torque than the automatic, right?

    It's one thing to have a preference for an auto over a manual or vice versa - it is another thing entirely to make shit up about one of them. Stick to the facts.

    Also, I was under the impression that the top stock speed on this car is in excess of 190? I have the number 198.2 to be exact in my head...

    Re: what's faster 6Mt or 6At

    Top speed for manual is 191, the auto is limited to 175. The auto would make it to the same speed I'm sure, but it's limited to protect it.
