    They can't have soemthing so close to the Vette.

    If that were the case, they'd sell about 700 rather than 7000.

    [quote=StealthCTSVJJL;1106410]There is no doubt in my mind that if Cadillac can keep the CTS-V's price range in the 60-65k range AND offer 600 hp they will lift M3, RS4, IS-F, and C63 customers from the other brands.quote]


    600 H.P.would put it in some elite six figure company..just can't see them being able to build and sell it for mid sixties.

    Lutz actually delivered as promised on the C6Z,but he also came up with the Aztec..maybe he learned something with the Z06's amazingly still strong markup.

    If it has an LS7,even N/A i'll sell my 05 and step firmly up to the plate.I'll wager quite a few tuners are hoping it doesn't..pretty hard to improve on that level of performance with a warranty.

    If you have any doubts here is the real and future heir of Caddy's M3, S4 challenger, they will surely make a V version around the HP and price of our current V, The CTS-V moves up to battle the likes of M5 and CLS63 on the horsepower front, but will be slightly smaller and a lot cheaper!

    Keep dreaming Jon, 600 hp won't happen.


    As Tony said, with torque nearing the 500 mark and correct gearing, a 525 hp V will suck the doors off an M5, just as Lutz said.

    I dont think the V series is volume enough to make a significant hit on GM's CAFE.

    I bet Z06 buyers are much more willing to shell out than CTS-V buyers.

    Here's what they should have done with the XLR-V:

    Ditch the northstar, intstall an LS7 and offer a 6 speed option.

    Keep everything else and it would have been worth the $100K MSRP (ok, maybe not, but it maybe $80k which is what they're giving them away for now)

    If that's GM's rational for making a "high performance" XLR nutless, then why bother. Especially if they're going to charge $30k over the Z06's MSRP.

    If that's true then the likelyhood of a 600 hp CTS-V for $55k is a fantasy.

    May as well wish for a Heather Locklear seat cover option.

    URB! This person mentioned the Aztec in this forum.

    Please ban for life.

    Thank you.

    (I believe that Lutz joined GM in 2001, the Azyuck rolled off the line prior to 2001)
