I'm lovin' the red calipers. Judging by the gold V on them, I'm guessing that one's seen some pretty good track use. :D

The Crystal Red doing the burnout just replaced Heinricy on the 'Ring as my new desktop.

It would be nice if the calipers matched the body colors.

Those red calipers will not be around too long before they black black black.

Those are the first blue shots I've seen. I was thinking grey or silver again but the blue might get me to rethink:confused:

Thanks for the link:thumbsup:

Take it to a good day running on the track. I doubt they will be red anymore :D

Holy Redline Hotness Batman!! I was thinking Diamond White when I upgrade, but Redline is starting to grow on me.

I think I like the CTS front end a little better. The V fogs look funny. Tiny little lights in a big, black, square.
Are those supposed to pop out for the new intake option?
Looks like the other forum is down. People know what they are now. I remember when they were true sleepers.

The two piece rotors are not production rotors. :)

I believe I read Lutz somewhere saying that there were going to be all kinds of dealer-installed upgrades available this time around. The GM dealer will be your warranty-covered tuner shop. Those brakes may be one of those upgrades. I'll see if I can find a link...

MT article mentions a track package that is optional. AMG does this on some their models also.

Thanks for the heads up,

Norm

Has anyone snapped a shot of a White one yet?
I read that there was a white one cruising around, hopefully someone will get a pic of it.
That Blue does look nice. Black looks mean, but I will never own another black car again.:thehand: O.C.D and owning a black car don't mix well!!!!!

I saw a white one and it looked good.

I am starting to second guess what color I want to get.

Tell me about it! Thunder Gray, Blue Diamond, White?
Those would be my choices.
Still gotta see a white one!

I wonder if you can purchase the track package and do a swap-out when you're going to the track? I know it's pricey to do the swap, but what's the point of using your track-ready brake package on the way TO the track? For those that are purchasing the V just for the track, I'm guessing they have the means to do a swap, or at least have transport for their vehicle...

Why wouldn't you use you track ready brake package on the street? Until they say the pads arent fit for the street, Im assuming they'll be should be fine. The rotors aren't carbon ceramic.

I can't see many buying this car just for the track, it doeesn't make any sense...

I dont know, the pics are nice, but i was expectin a WOW from the car...

Engine wise i can always slap in a SC forged 6.0 that puts out that much power...Copy the hood and have my V1 version of the V3...

AWESOME...:drool::drool::drool:

I saw a black one last October and it looked great. I'd love to have the blue..with window chrome trim removed, along with those side vents.
