how many KMs did you put in for the break in period before you floored the throttle ?

Which approach are you taking for breaking in the car ? Hard Beating or Soft Driving ???

Did you try Dragging against other cars like M5/RS6/C6Z ??

Also is that Wheel Hop @ just around 62 Km/h or did you shift to second ? or was it just massive spin ??

Glad to hear from you again, nice questions :)

1) well, i drove it like i stole it :D, hard beating man pure hard beating, just after 200 kms i started to kick it hard. dont worry, what is warranty for??

2) yes i tried with the m5 e60, which had catback, and my car was just 3000 kms. i beat him bad, like till 250 he was 1 car length back, so thats good enough for a 3000 kms car, and his m5 wasnt stock.

3)i shifted the gear to 2nd, and there is so much power that it had to chrip. Hope im clear enough to clear your doubts, anymore questions please go ahead :)

& please watch the video again, i did some editing.
how can you even wait till 2010 for such a wonderful car. cheers

YouTube - CTS V 2009, 0-300 km/h (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VJTeNp4ueY)

great video!!!!
I`m surprised the top speed on automatic transmission isn`t limited to 280 kph.
Here in Germany the export model with auto is limited at 280 kph, with 6 manual 308 kph but I still have had no chance to check this out because no 2009 CTS V is available at this time here.

the auto is limited to the top of 5th gear. the 6 speed manual can push past 300k. just watch out for those speed cameras on sheikh zayed road!

ive already tried the top speed with my auto trans ctsv .. the dial was pointing between 300-310, so i assume its like 305 kph, i tried changing into 6th gear, but the number just kept on flashing..
The annoying overspeed warning on the dash just ruins everything... "i know im over speed, i can see the my speedo over 300kph!

ps. sheikh zayed road has those new speed camera's facing both sides of the highway, and at 2km, intervals! ya'll should be thankful you aint livin in dubai!

pls email me: john@hennesseyperformance.com

the auto does not go into 6th gear for top speed due to reliability reasons. 175 is your limit. if top speed is really important to you then get a 6-speed which will hit 191 mph stock and over 200 mph with modifications.

OK, if I'm going to risk my life doing a top speed run on a public highway in my V I'm not going down listening to Celine Dion. U2, Enigma, Vivaldi maybe but I'm not flaming out with Celine hitting her high notes.

Agreed! Great video :thumbsup: How about posting a "US Rocker" version with Sammy Hagar's, "I can't drive 55" in the background? :cool2:

If top speed is infact limited on the Auto (175mph=280km/hr), how is the vid showing 300 in the auto? is the speedometer that far off the mark?
Can you force it into 6th using th paddle/button shifters?

Not that it really matters, you won't ever hit those speeds anyways.. umm unless you are making a video

getting that speed here in uae is not a big problem, and it is limited to 186mph, 300kmh. because the specifications are for gulf, not usa.
