From the lips of Marc LeNeve:

STS-V - Supercharged 4.6L V-8 - 430hp

Hydra-Matic 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive 5th gear and electronically controlled shifts with driver shift control.

Improved spoiler with a higher tilt degree. Spoiler will be integrated more than the add-on Spoiler.

3rd brake light integrated into spoiler.


STS Information

W/O tack-on spoiler (Marc LeNeve hates the Spoiler)
Top Speed Electronically limited to 130MPH

With tack-on spoiler
Top Speed Electronically limited to 155MPH

**Apparently the STS was getting lifted from the back without a spoiler, so they needed to give it a spoiler to keep it on the ground. To quote Marc "...that's how powerful this car is..."**

0-60 in under 6 Seconds!! (Probably the RWD V8, but no specifics were mentioned)

STS may be getting a V-10 or V-12 later on down the road

this is one car that has definitely peaked my interest. if the price is reasonable, like a 10k premium over the regular sts, then it might have my name on it.

hello will the 2006 sts-v have a mesh grill like the cts-v-----------

I would say yes.
The mesh grill is going to be a V-series trademark. The gaping hole on the test car shows that they are testing with full airflow through there too...

If they had the mesh grill on there, they might as well have not bothered putting on all the camo, because the grill would be a dead give away to it being a V

Anyone notice how wide the rear wheel well's get on the second picture? (its kind of masked with cammo)

This is just my opinion, Not meant to offend anyone but this STS does absolutly nothing for me. Just being honest thats all.

The CTS-V on the other hand > gives me an erection :D and thats the Truth.

Let me Correct myself about the STS :rolleyes: I was too quick to judge this fine Cadillac. After looking at some other pics of these cars in different colors and angles, They begin to apeal to me :) This car has to "grow on you" as far as it's looks are concerned, and as we all know beauty is only skin deep so without actually driving this car it wouldn't be fair to make a final decision based on looks alone. JMO

Top 3 pics=STS

Bottom 3 pics=CTSV

dang, only 430 horsepower. yeah, that's still very good, but i thought it would be a little higher so it can compete with the next BMW M5. they are planning on 500hp. eh, it's not always about horsepower though. i guess we will just wait and see how the two match up.

Your more than right they need more than just a supercharger in that thing. They need to make a 40V Northstar V-10 and then supercharge it.

i heard that the BMW v-10 will be turning less than 400 lbs.ft. right? i think that the roots style supercharger on the n* will match the 430 hp with close to 430 lbs.ft.maybe a little more. i think that will be good enough to take the new m5 head-on in a drag race.

I saw an ad in the paper for the upcoming STS-V and it said it had a twin-turbo 450 HP engine. Anyone know more about that???
