    I'm almost heart broken. The bottom of that bumper looks ricey.

    Re: Is this it?

    Eh... to each their own
    Not liking much of any of it, except the hood.
    Rear bumper looks even more ricey.
    And what's with all the chrome bling? Fender vent, side window trim, trunk lid?
    Hope the engine/drive train make up for it.
    The Gen I is looking even better IMO.
    The wife took one look at and said it looks out of proportion.
    Doesn't like all the chrome either.

    But - it's not like I was planning on putting down a deposit on one anyway.

    Not liking it much but maybe it will grow on me. Did they go to D3 for that front bumper cover?

    The headlights actually look too small from that angle

    Looks like a 4 door m35 or something. I'm not as pumped as I was. I hope that changes.

    Hmmmm, interesting. The side view looks hot, the rear view looks hot, the front I'm still meh on.

    My god, why do people still write that it will have a NA LS-7 when you can clearly see the bulge for the supercharger. Silly.

    But FINALLY some real pics to disect. Thanks!

    Keep in mind those photos are from a long ways away and are not the best quality. I didn't really like the regular CTS until I saw one... I don't think the car photos well, but it looks great in person. That being said, WTF the bumper looks out of proportion...

    Re: Is this it?

    I am going to withhold judgement until I see some higher quality and more detailed pix. I guess should happen in about 1 month.

    But, as for what I think at this very moment, it looks quite a bit like the current STS-V in proportions and also in some of the other small details. It looks OK, but I am not floored by the looks.

    Looks very clean, interesting that the V badges are on but there is no "supercharged" badge like the STS-V and XLR-V. Like the staggered tire sizes and apparently six pot brakes. Too much chrome, lower front grille is derivative at best, always thought our V grille was quite a stand out original.
    But 600 hp would go a long way towards warming me up. Reference to 525 hp hopefully is wrong.

    Re: Is this it?

    Something is wrong with the front end photo, it's not formatted right or something because the entire front looks ENTIRELY too narrow to be proportionately correct.

    This will definitely have to be one of those see it in person cars. Pics just arent going to do it justice.

    Re: Is this it?

    I know this will be an uncommon opinion but I'm still glad to hear there will be an automatic version of the CTS-V. As mentioned in the Edmunds article, the CTS-V is, so far, a failure in regards so sales. I like the fact that Cadillac is in the performance game. But they can not and will not stay if nobody is buying the vehicles. The automatic will change this negative trend tremendously...
