    Thats gonna be one awesome car. Im already salivating over the regular one, the V is going to be unstoppable. I think this might finally give Cadillac, and the CTS in particular a boost in the world view.

    BTW, if you guys need to you are always welcome to host images on www.q45.org under the Image Gallery. Thats Jesda's site and he has it setup just for that purpose. Most sites dont mind hotlinking, but some can be nasty about it.

    I think I'll wait until a final production model is displayed before I make any decisions about considering it for purchase.

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    That bulge in the hood is there for good reason. The July edition of Motor Trend that I just got in my mailbox says that the 2009 CTS V will have the supercharged LS7 - good for 600 hp. They say the naturally aspirated LS7 doesn't have enough low-end grunt for a 3600 lb car.

    I can't wait to test drive the first one to come to town!

    If the naturally aspirated ls7 doesnt have enough torque to push the car, what the hell are they saying about the current engine pushing the current car? If the motor is going to be supercharged, it would have the ls3, not the ls7. If my mom had a dic%, she'd be my dad!!! I'm waiting this one out!

    Lutz has said the power will be unexpectedly high. Who knows, maybe GM "insiders" leaked out the 500 number to throw everyone off.

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    they said "massive bulge"

    Eh... when she's finally in street clothes I'll make my decision on whether I like the looks or not. So far it doesn't look bad and I do like the smaller grille. If you all look at Jim's pic he posted you can see the outline of a Cadillac badge that was taken off. She's gonna be mean though. Hmmm... 525 sounds like a nice round number. 600hp? Someone's dreaming. I really hope I get proved wrong. Hopefully career changes will soon be coming and I can afford one.

    I knew this would raise some interest. Don't take my word for it.

    Nah, they had the same goofy "nipple" camo on the regular CTS mules. I don't get the need for secrecy at this point as the CTS has already been shown. Perhaps that's an old CTS mule that has been retrofitted with the V suspension and powertrain?
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    Re: New '09 V Shots

    Ok..A few comments to the neigh sayers...

    1. Obviously that is not the production hood, facia, or tailights
    2. The new CTS rides on a sigma II chassis, which has the exact same wheelbase as the current car, so it's just as wide, has the same awesome suspension config, and is 50% stiffer.
    3. Anyone who doubts that this car will be supercharged should go have someone kick them in the nuts. Between the buldge on the hood, that clearly has been taked on while they finalize the body work. Besides that the model designation is "GMX322 V S/C". Hmmm...I wonder what S/C could denote?
    5. Definately the Brakes from the Z06..Mee likies!
    6. A number of sources have indicated that a new diff will be going in the CTS and V. The good news...Same wheel base and chassis config mean a high probability for backward compatibility. ( lets pray for a recall replaced by new part!)

    The interior and styling of the new CTS are a home run, let's put alittle faith in GM to at least meet that standard with the V. My Bets are still on a Northstar S/C from the other V models, but I'll be pleaseantly surprised if it gets the Vett SS LSA. Heed these words..this car will be a MONSTER. Truly a worthy adversary for any of the worlds Q Ships! AUDI, MB, and BMW need to beware this one.
