    Did Mercedes do this intentionally towards the CTS-Vagon

    I was watching this video today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xgakhV3hEw and i noticed when he said 557hp... Thats odd. The CTS-V has 556hp. Would Mercedes do this as a blow towards the Vagon. I know the CLS63 obviously has much more power than the CTS and it should for the price but I find it funny MB would do something like that.

    I doubt Mercedes gives two shits about the CTS-V wagon, a lame duck car sold in tiny quantities.

    This is one of the top ten signs that you're a Cadillac nut... When you take everything any other car company does as a personal affront to your brand.

    Horsepower ratings are insignificant, some are conservative others or too good to be true. Torque also plays a large roll in how fast a car gets up and goes. I do know with my E series wagon with the Power pack it is rated at 6 horsepower less than my V series wagon @556 yet cut's through the quarter mile a half second faster and seat of the pants feels even faster than that.
