Autoblog - First Drive: 2009 Cadillac CTS-V (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/09/02/first-drive-2009-cadillac-cts-v/)

Not really much new to say here and the article is somewhat lazily written. Some good pictures though. :)

Production of the new CTS-V starts in October and Cadillac hasn't finalized pricing yet. We're told to expect a base price of about $60,000 with only a handful of options, but the only option you really need are those Recaro seats. That's more than $20,000 less than a BMW M5 or a Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 – and the Cadillac is faster than both. For those who crave the supercharged grunt of a ZR1 but regularly need space for more than one passenger, the 2009 CTS-V will get you shockingly close in a remarkably sophisticated package that's a bargain in this segment.

I'm guessing the Sept 24th NDA wasn't very solid judging by the number of articles appearing.
