    Motor Trend M5 vs CTS-V Performance Tests

    Hey guys,

    I dont think I have seen these around before, so for your viewing pleasure






    I am Amazed how the M5 Forum JUST CANT TAKE IT, that an almost $30000 USD Cadillac is Performing better, with a very similar Quality, if not better depends on taste ...

    Here is the ongoing discussion about it ... CLICK


    In my opinion I would love to see a top speed run CTS-V vs M5 all the way !!! Maybe then someone will come down to reality !!!

    Here is a stock CTS-V vs a stock M5 on Texas gas (93 octane).

    In that motor trend video, the outcome could've been much uglier for the M5 if the V driver did good shifts. The V bogs down on every shift, Iam not sure if the driver's shifting skill sucks, or he did that on purpose not to piss anyone off

    I see the second race with the black V is much more realistic

    Interior shot would have been nice. Wonder if their policy allows power shifting or no lift shift which the V has?

    Both the M5 and M3 lovers are in awe of this Cadillac. I can honestly say that I believe that many are simply experiencing a feeling of hurt due to the massive amounts of additional funds they spent on a car that simply cannot handle the "ZR1 Sedan."

    Funny they will say that in 2011 BMW will be back with a 600HP upgrade on the current M5.. well isn't it possible that a restructured GM will be willing to perhaps retain it's crown by awaiting that debut.. and re-doing the CTS-V with a swap of the LS9?

    Anything's certainly possible, but I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for a different engine in the V. The LSA's it. Any power increases that do happen (and I have my doubts any will happen) will happen to the LSA itself.

    gawwwd damn, that is some HORRIBLE shifting in the V car. The youtube video is more of the reality.....unless the V driver left the traction control on and it kept kicking in bogging the V after every shift...seems like the more likely scenario.

    I'm just sayin.. and we both kno that 600HP from the LSA is as easy as apple pie. A 44HP gain is tune away

    Those guys on the M board are definitely a different breed. I like the fact that I can get more than M5 performance for much less. M5 is a nice car for sure but I like it a lot less now that the V is here.

    You definitely want to knock some sense into some of them guys on the BMW forums who blindly utter nonsense in order to defend their personal choice in vehicle, however, same shit happens here...

    Or on any other model-focused forum for that matter.

    Full comparison from Motor Trend:

    http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...son/index.html

    "Yet where it really matters, as a performance sedan, the CTS-V soundly spanks the M5. It's quicker in a straight line, handles better, steers better, even rides better "
