    velvety

    So last week I got the call of the year, the person on the other end works for GM and said, hey chewwtoy (they called me by my real name), I just got this CTS-V sitting here wanna drive it? So then I said ... .. .. .yeah.. ok..

    I own the 2008 CTS and as many of you know the two cars have the essentially the same exterior. The interior however has some notable modifications. The steering wheel is like some sort of velvet or something like that. It's grey and soft and nice. I think its a little bit smaller than my '08 CTS. Also the steering wheel has two paddle shifter-like buttons on the in-side part.

    The seats are different as well. They're a bit bulkier. The sides are adjustable and can angle towards you or away.

    They've added the new electronic park break. The switch is located just south of the gear shifter. It's a bit noisy now.. but I think that may change in the future... maybe..


    And of course it drives quite nicely. I was able to easily squak the tires. In the place of the traction control button, now is a button that switches between Sport Mode and Tour Mode. Press the button, push the accelerator pedal, spin tires. Simple. The car handles amazing, I took in around a couple of turns, while trying ever so hardly to obey the speed limits.. (i really tried, but the car would let me).

    All-in-all if you are fan of the 2008 CTS look and feel, but want some extra * extra fun, the new V doesn't disappoint.

    I wouldn't diss the review too much because it wasn't done by a car rag that's only going speed too much time talking about the germans. Sometimes I get tired of the horse shit I read in some of these mags. Real person and a real review in the raw. I wish I was the one that got drive test it.

    So someone at GM risked their career and life letting you drive the car?

    Re: So it's fun to drive, in case your wondering

    I would have ripped around in that car, what are speed limits when you're driving a 550 hp pre-production cts-v !?!?

    If he handed me the keys and said, "Drive slow, stay under the speed limit and keep the T/C & Stability on," I would have said,

    "Bah! Nevermind then! I'd drive a DTS if I was interested in obeying speed limits and driving straight all the time!"


    So did you drive it like a granny or did you forget to tell us what happened when you punched it at 3500 rpm???
