So I was driving in my city and I see the 08 test cars for cadillac lined up in a parking lot at a hotel, i was like whoa! so i went over to take a look..fund out that Bosch was testing them in cape coral, fl for sea-level testing. lol. I talked with the guy from Bosch for a few minutes I saw at the hotel outside..and i asked "wheres the V" he replied "back at home" and get this, he said back in michigan they have the new style V series with an LS2..now i was like OH? an LS2? really? and he said again , yes, an LS2 ..so i asked ..i thought it was supposed to be the LS7 or a supercharged northstar?..he said nope, as of now, its an LS2 but nothing is final, then he also added that they werent positive on the body style and he pointed to the grey cts and then the black car in the photos that kinda looks like the new sts .Now he wasn't with cadillac or anything , he was just a Bosch test person. so then he complimented my car, and asked how many miles were on it and how many sets of tires i have gone through...and thats about it.. here are the photos i took and a few videos with my phone

Weird.

The CTS has been unveiled. Why the camo now?

Why camo some, but not others?

Why mask the Caddy badge on one car? Did something fall off?

Why does the silver car have white door handles?

Why don't all of them have side vents?




These and other questions will be answered on the next thrilling chapter of "All My Caddies."

the show model of the CTS has been released....

who says thats the FINAL version...

i know the 05mustang changed slightly between the "final" autoshow car and the production model

also, the cars panels might not match if they were a test track car, the original bits and peices may have been drilled, bolted, tapped to have instrumentation installed like external high precision speedos, accelerometers etc. Then the bits and pieces replaced before turning them into test mules

Write this down. The 09 CTS-V will NOT have an LS2 in it.

I saw them on College parkway this morning. But they were headed on the opposite direction. I like the checkered flag look.
