What's good for the Blue Devil is good for the Cadillac CTS-v. The next-generation muscle-Caddy, which is expected in the 2009 model year along with the quicker-than-Z06 Chevrolet Corvette, also will get the supercharged LS7 7.0-liter powerplant. While the Blue Devil, which will be named Z07, will have about 700-horsepower ("Trend," June), expect the engine to be detuned somewhat for the CTS-v to about 600 horses.
That's still well above the competition's numbers. The BMW M3 and Audi RS4 come in at 420 horsepower, and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG looks to be about 503 horsepower, same as the CLK63 AMG Black Series that made its debut at the New York show.
On paper, the Z06's 505-horsepower, 7.0-liter has enough grunt to give the CTS-v the edge over its European rivals. But the naturally aspirated Z06 engine is said to lack enough low-end torque for a car of the Cadillac's weight. The Z06 weighs just over 3200 pounds; the new CTS-v is likely to tip the scales at about 3600.
Expect themes from the current Cadillac CTS-v to carry through to the new model, including stiffer springs and shocks, meaty Brembo brakes, a quicker steering ratio, fender blisters, and lower front and rear deck spoilers, a mesh grille, and nicely bolstered front seats.
Well, I will say, if it hits both 6 marks, I'll buy it in a heartbeat. 600hp and $60G or under. Even if I had to sell the current V to do it...
ha ha lol . he must be sleeping. wake up urb
I like cars that can suck doors off BMWs
well its not really speculation, its new information.
so i don't think it gets the axe
Lambo doors, whistle tips, 24" rims, V stickers, nitrogen filled tires, CAI horsepower gains.....ALL IN BEFORE THE KILL (merge)!!!!!
There's new info on the 09 V!
Sadly the thread has been moved, you click it and end up here. Must have been top secret stuff.
How is it new info? Rumors of every engine config has been speculated on since day 1...
No matter how much we speculate, I am sure GM has the 09 V in the bag by now. So can't we start a 2014 CTS-V speculation thread?
