Yup, just got it in the mail yesterday.

I'm not sure about the flares either, but I love the 800hp and wasn't it like 870 ft/lbs torque?

I also loved how they say it is still very streetable. Streetable, but you have to carry 2 spare tires in the car because you wear through them so fast :thumbsup:

Overall a pretty good article. Sounds like the owners live in PA somewhere.

I read the article, and noticed no 1320' time and no 0-60/100 times.
Looks like a fun car, but can it hook up?

I also believe it said Miles Since Upgrades: 500. Sounds like a dyno queen / show /promo car to me.

Very streetable means, there is a potential at one point or another this car may actually roll onto the street, not that it actually has.

No hate. Cool car. Practical, no. But hell a normal CTS-V isn't really on the practical side. I'm still trying to convince my wife that a 13-15 mpg car is a good commuter :D

Rockland did the custon diff too it looks like:

"In anticipation of the increased fluid temperatures common to road racing the T56 and rear end were sent out to Rockland Standard Gear where the vital internals were smoothed out and treated to a process that reduces operating temperature and friction. As added insurance, Predator treated the CTS-V to motor, transmission and differential oil coolers."

Sounds like a nice upgrade we could use in general.

With the 305 PS tires they might be able to launch the thing. With that kind of hp though you might do better starting in 2nd.
