Good Video but what`s not so good is the top speed run on a dirt road.

Here in Germany I go at least once a week on a business trip ( mostly around 600 miles) and I have my 11 CTS V Coupe on each trip up to 180 mph or even a little faster for two, three times.
Top speed of my Coupe is 306 kph (190 mph by speedo) then it shuts off.

King of the Autobahn, yeah, that`s what these V series Cadillac`s are!!!!

I think it would have made more sense if they used a stock C6. The corvette in the video is a tuned C6 with 480 crank hp. A stock C6 has 436hp.

I didn't get the point of involving OnStar. Otherwise, a good review. I loved his statement that the drivetrain was "Cadillac's apology for the 1990's". I wholeheartedly agree.

pretty good. i thought he wouldn't get past 140 for a little while there..

yea it would have been a better comparision if they used a stock c6, because it definetely had more than a tune on it

Feeling some jealousy here.... Next week, take some vids and post the high speed runs. I am sure that I am not the only one who would like to see the V at high speed in the real (for Germans) world.
