    Re: Who has the latest dirt?

    It's not much, but here's a snippet from one of my communications with an engineer:

    Also - I have sent an e-mail regarding the fluid spec. to the engineer tasked with development of the new cast iron rear diff. I failed to ask him while he was here at LGR, but he did say that they have tried to break this new unit and have thus far been spectacularly unsuccessful, so that is good news indeed. He was very bullish about the level of robust engineering that has gone into the part and sounds totally confident.

    You can only eat leftovers just so many times. Without new info from Cadillac, it's all crickets.

    Re: Who has the latest dirt?

    I walked the Dallas Auto show today. I was able to climb inot the V2 and look around. The car had the Recaro seats, metal pedals and 6 speed stick. The car is absolutely gorgeous. The 6 piston calipers in the front are huge, and the backs look like the 4 calipers from the V1 (I'm adding a photo of the rear brakes, the front 's didnt photograph well). The grill is surprisingly nicer than the V1. It is a thicker metal than the mesh in the V1, and seems to be better at allowing airflow, and easier to clean after a track day.

    The alcantera steering wheel and shifter are nice, and not as "low rent" as I expected. The Seats are very supportive, but I didn't have a huge amount of headroom. The battery was unconnected, so I don't know if the seat could be lowered. If it can't be lowered, I am not sure a helmet for track day will fit very well.

    The paint was a special color of "ashlava" per the sales rep, and the interior was a light platinum gray. It looks great, but may not make it into production.

    GM is not managing this well, IMO, when it is so easy. Keep giving the people teasers! Why wouldn't you... keep the interest. The Prius comment was right on the money, this flame keeps burning out.

    That grille is not metal, it is 100% plastic. I thought it felt pretty low-rent........I was a little disappointed in it, personally.

    Plastic sounds like a corporate cost reduction instead of a customer value add.

    This just out. The V2 engine will be two Alloytech V6s joined together to make a V12. Power estimated at 620HP.

    I was hoping for the "Tony Montana Yellow" and cashmere tiger motif interior.

    I'd roll that!

    Plastic grill really sucks! I hope that gets fixed.

    Honestly, why the F does it matter if the grill is plastic? You can't tell by looking at it and it saves weight...
