I can't really speak German but I caught "Mein Gott" (right after the V caught some air) -- they sure seemed to be enjoying it -- can anyone translate?

If you bought the car in Germany with U.S. dollars it would cost $102,827 with the price shown in the video of 76,990 Euros.

A friend of mine is fluent in German. Sent him the link to translate the high points...

Edit: Here's what my buddy said
Basically a road test of cadi ctsv both guys really liked it, second guy to drive is a former rally champ was not as impressed until he drove, over all good review I asked him to select anything quotable....

Ha haa! Car guys are not wed to any particular nationality. I don't speak German but it is obvious that they were thoroughly impressed and enjoyed thrashing the "V" around the Alps. I wonder if they are MB or BMW employees, or car mag people? Cadillac can't buy this kind of advertising; this is how reputations are built.

Got a translation on the mien gott: he says " my god, for the price point this car is ridiculous"
