2009 CADILLAC CTS SUPER-V

AVAILABLE EARLY 2008


Pine for a Corvette Z06 but need more than
two seats? Well, come 2008, Cadillac is
expected to launch its CTS Super-V sedan,
packing the top Vette’s fearsome 505-horsepower
LS7 V-8. And if that doesn’t give sufficient
bragging rights, keep in mind that the
current, LS6-powered CTS-V weighs some
500 pounds less than BMW’s 500-horsepower
M5, and the Super-V likely will enjoy
a similar weight advantage. That means
the king Caddie should handily trounce the
mighty Bavarian, at least in a straight line.
An aggressive body kit, humongous rear
tires, and the Z06’s bi-mode exhaust round
out this dream car for the family man—er,
maniac. Oh, and look for the Super-V to undercut
the M5’s $81,895 base price by a
healthy margin.

I got my notification via email to download the issue, but haven't done it yet. Glad someone is keeping up.

I bet the aftermarket guys are keeping both eyes wide open with superchargers, headers, etc., etc. Outta be phenomenal when I'm back in the market again ... let's see ... premium at about $4.50 or so per gal, too. :eek:

That's the base price for the M5, not the Super V.

And a convertible...
How 'bout a paddle-shift 7-speed close ratio box, plus adjustable shocks (two-way), sway-bars and brake-bias (all from cockpit controls please) while we're asking. Saweeeeeet!

BLECH on paddle shift.

Row Row Row your gears, not so gently past that Beam(er).

Merrily Merrily Merrily, super V is but a dream.
