Not sure if this is a repost but look closely at the text on the top...first official ad I've seen of what newly lies beneath the hood...

It also says there is an 'estimated' 400hp on tap...hmmm.

Anyone notice that they dropped the 0-60 to an easier to obtain 4.9 seconds? Maybe Cadillac is reading these forums.

Some more from this issue...I wonder how they've lessened the wheel hop?? Can you say bushings??

So it's got little bit more torque, improved transmission and less wheel hop. That's interesting.

Now just how have they improved the six-speed?

I am seriously considering a short-throw shifter.

The first time I went through the gears I could have sworn that my right arm ended up sticking out the passenger-side window!
