V for Vendetta (http://www.motivemag.com/pub/feature/first_steer/Motive_First_Ride_2009_Cadillac_CTS-V.shtml)

Seems all the latest info came along with a ride with John Heinricy at the GM proving grounds. This is the best article on the ride yet. The Car Connection one was ok, but this one is better and has a killer closing basically confirming Cadillac is proving it's got its mojo back for real with this car!!

I like the 58K # a lot too.

I think I love this car and I haven't even driven it yet! Played with a GTO today and actually thought how many car lengths will be ahead of this guy in a few months. Made me smile :)

Autoblog says $70K. Split the difference?

Remember - this is MOTIVE magazine....even $64K could be considered a steal if the performance #'s holdup

probably $58k base...

but once you add the options (have we even confirmed what the options are going to be? i.e. is NAV going to be standard? sunroof standard? etc.) you'll probably be well into the $60s.

Maybe I can convince the wife to take the Cayenne and trade in her Murano for an '09 V... hmmm, that sounds pretty good.

So then you'll have two cars, the wife zero? :thepan:
