Wow, that interior looks like a complete rip off from BMW's 745 and 760. :banghead:

If cadillac wants to compete, the're going to have to enter the "German horsepower war"... not sure how much they can pump out of the N* anymore.

If they stepped the Northstar up to 5.0L or maybe even 5.5L, the Northstar would be right back in the hunt. Could also set it up for a charger. Will they enter the horsepower war? I dunno, probably not in time. Dodge and Ford are already gearing up for the war, GM is just trying to get back to RWD.

I never noticed that about the dash until you pointed it out. :hmm:

I guess I'd rather have an American car with electronics that work properly all the time, than a Benz. :devil:

Time to get some muscle back, bring back a modern version of a large cu. in. engine with advanced technology to boot. Or add a supercharger and bring back the 4.9. :p

The 590ci Cadillac Firestar V8

750 hp and 800 ft/lbs of torque. :halo:
