Neat to see that the V is being compared to a fairly exotic group of supercars. Some strange 0-60 times though... I wonder what traction was like. Anyway, here's the link:

Thanks for posting the article. The other cars are sports cars (except for the RS6), and many of them are modified, so a stock V almost seems out of place in that group. I guess they needed a car to haul all the testing and camera gear, so they included the V and the RS6...

Funny they would use a Caddy, how about a ZR1 Vette?

Hawkeye..I said the same thing to myself...why? Goofy comparo. Nonetheless it's great to see the Caddy getting noticed in this club of extoics. Purchase price not withstanding, these are truly superior autos of their times.

I've officially come to realize that any comparison done across the pond is heavily biased and never makes American cars seem favorable. a 4.7s 0-60 on the V? You could get that time by shifting out of park first if you had too. What a joke. Mags that test American cars are about as unbiased as the NYTimes.
