    I read car & driver too.
    The numbers you got are for the manual transmission V2.
    According to C&D the auto V2 does 0-60 in 3.9 and 1/4 mile in 12.2 @119.

    And the V1 0-60 in 4.8, and 1/4 mile in 13.2 @ 109.

    I suck at launching and I managed to get a 4.8 0-60 in my V1

    Since the V1 didn't come with an automatic, I feel the manual V2 is the more appropriate comparison. And I compared first tests, not whichever road test or comparison test during the life of the product happened to produce the numbers you're happiest with. Also, the 2005 V cost $51,295 and the 2009 automatic cost $61,295. See, you can dig up variations and quibble until the cows come home. Is there a point to you posting different numbers? Why is first-test-to-first-test not appropriate?

    My guess is they won't brand the V3 a CTS-V.
