    2009 CTS- V Blisters Nurburgring

    By Ed

    In testing today at Germany’s Nurburgring, Cadillac’s upcoming new 2009 CTS- V completed a lap of the legendary Nordschleife in 7:59.32. This blistering time appears to be the fastest ever publicly documented for a production sedan.


    Cadillac is nearing the completion of testing for the highly anticipated CTS- V , the limited-edition high-performance model based on the award-winning CTS sport sedan. John Heinricy, executive with GM Performance Division and an acclaimed racing driver, piloted the CTS- V through its sub-8 minute lap. The car itself had no performance modifications outside of those planned for consumer production, which is scheduled to begin this fall.


    Estimated at 550 horsepower, the CTS- V is at the moment going through the final stages of intensive testing and development. One of the realistic objectives of the Cadillac team is to make the CTS- V the world’s fastest production sedan, as a part of the overall goal to make the V -Series Cadillac’s ultimate expression of performance and technology. More updates will be released in the coming weeks as testing is finalized, including the car’s certified SAE power ratings, acceleration specifications and U.S.-market pricing.


    Video documentation of the car’s breakthrough Nordschleife performance will be posted here in the coming days. Stay tuned.

    I don't know, but it includes all of these:

    8:09 - '08 Audi RS6 Avant
    8:15 - BMW M5
    8:19 - '04 CTS-V
    8:31 - STS-V
    8:40 - '08 CTS

    Notice that it not just beats them, but destroys those times by 10 seconds or more.

    I believe the correct term is "suck the doors off".

    that is fine

    but my issue.

    since 2009 is not in full swing production. Just like the GT-r. It can not be called a production vehicle until there are NUMEROUS of them on the road, AND, a random sampling is taken from those produced cars and RAN.

    Otherwise, The GT-r absolutely smacks this car plus almost every other car into the ground with a 7:38. That is a whopping 20 second, forget whooping, MASSACARE. And I am not using the bystandard timed one that came in at below 7:30!

    The GT-R isnt a sedan...


    and yes it is a production sedan, production does not neccessarily entail that it is in mass production. it is being developed in final aesthetic form, as a commercial market vehicle and not as a purpose built racecar or competition vehicle.

    ergo PRODUCTION sedan

    Not true, and I thought we were beyond comparing the V and the GT-R.

    does not neccesarily? You are kidding?

    It either does or it doesn't. No inbetween. So which is it? (just be aware that this is a setup question).

    as for comparo,

    weight are about the same
    power about the same (no SAE number for CTS-V so we will see).
    priced about the same

    One has two doors less. And because of that it is classified as a sport car instead of something else.

    you guys are funny!

    SHUT UP ABOUT THE GT-R.

    It's a coupe.

    It's not a luxury vehicle.

    It has no real back seat.

    It has a punishing ride.

    It is not, nor will it ever be a car that people in their right mind compare to a 4 door, luxury equipped CTS-V. The article specifically said "4-Door sedan", which the GT-R is not. This forum was nearly ruined by all the stupid GT-R posts- don't take us there again. If you want to talk about the GT-R, then GTFO and go find a GT-R forum.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)
