    CTS-V versus 300C SRT-8

    Yes the CTS-V is fast, but the SRT-8 is faster! Id take the 6.1 Hemi with 425 horspower any day! Did I mention the SRT-8 Magnum will also beat it and its a station wgaon! LOL
    The CTS-V looks sexier though!

    NSX = over-priced, slugs. Nice looking though. The guy probably got the CTS-V so he'd have something with some power.
    I agree, the SRT-8 IS faster but the CTS-V is a much nicer car for anyone who really wants a "driver's car".

    You sure about that?

    Since that test, the CTS-V has also received the LS2 with a more usable powerband which would widen the gap.

    Actually, I have both. The NSX is actually very, very fast. Ever driven one? Just like an Elise, it doesn't need a lot of HP to be quick and fast. Anyway, both are great cars. The SRT8 Chryslers are great cars. I have been trying to talk my wife into getting a Magnum or SRT8 Grand Cherokee for her next car, but that's still up in the air....

    Re: CTS-V versus 300C SRT-8

    The Lotus Elise costs less than half of what a NSX does and has virtually the exact same performance. Okay, I understand that both cars exploit good power to weight ratios for their performance but the Elise is not pretending to be a super-car. My son loves the NSX and has ever since they came out but even he is getting tired of waiting for Honda to make it a true player in it's originally intended market.

    As for the SRT-8's performance, I can tell you that stock vs. stock, the SRT-8 will outrun the CTS-V. I personally watched as two SRT-8's ran 12.8 and 12.9 1/4 miles "bone stock". I have never even HEARD of any CTS-V's doing that.

    Honda NSX? That overpriced thing that handles very well but has the straight line performance of a slightly modded MUSTANG? Unimpressive! Unimpressive!

    NSX = 0-60 in 4.8 and 1/4 in the high 12s = not slow. With all due respect, ever driven one? I'm guessing you haven't. If so, then so be it, but if not, if you happen to know someone, have them take you for a ride. I think your opinion will change.

    Re: CTS-V versus 300C SRT-8

    I had the opportunity a few years ago. Wasn't bad back then but these days, a car in that price range needs more power. Obviously, I'm not the only one who feels that way. When was the last time you saw a NSX included in any kind of supercar shoot-out or sportscar comparison? It's just not a contender anymore IMO.

    Re: CTS-V versus 300C SRT-8

    It is what it is... This is one of those couch racing discussions and its really somewhat meaningless. The truth is most of us couldn't drive as fast as the manufacturers claim their cars can go anyway and since I'm not a drag racer guy, I don't care that much about 1/4 mile times. I enjoy my time in my NSX, both on the street and my road course track time. Anyway, this post was about a troll trying to "ruffle feathers" on a Cadillac message board. Not sure why we're talking about Acuras.

    So let's go back to the original post...

    The CTS-V is better than the SRT8...

    hee hee hee ha ha ha hee hee hee ha ha ha.

    To the original poster, if you have the money, go buy yourself a SRT8 and have fun with it. They are very cool cars. I love that both DC and GM have cool cars for us to be talking about.

    Last time I checked, you didn't do standing starts at track days. Advantage CTS-V.

    When I say track days, I mean road course, not the simpleton's way of bragging rights.
