    2006 STS / STS-V Information

    This was originally posted at GMInsideNews.com

    From the lips of Marc LeNeve:

    STS-V - Supercharged 4.6L V-8 - 430hp

    Hydra-Matic 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive 5th gear and electronically controlled shifts with driver shift control.

    Improved spoiler with a higher tilt degree. Spoiler will be integrated more than the add-on Spoiler.

    3rd brake light integrated into spoiler.


    STS Information

    W/O tack-on spoiler (Marc LeNeve hates the Spoiler)
    Top Speed Electronically limited to 130MPH

    With tack-on spoiler
    Top Speed Electronically limited to 155MPH

    **Apparently the STS was getting lifted from the back without a spoiler, so they needed to give it a spoiler to keep it on the ground. To quote Marc "...that's how powerful this car is..."**

    0-60 in under 6 Seconds!! (Probably the RWD V8, but no specifics were mentioned)

    STS may be getting a V-10 or V-12 later on down the road

    this is one car that has definitely peaked my interest. if the price is reasonable, like a 10k premium over the regular sts, then it might have my name on it.

    Re: 2006 STS / STS-V Information

    I would say yes.
    The mesh grill is going to be a V-series trademark. The gaping hole on the test car shows that they are testing with full airflow through there too...

    If they had the mesh grill on there, they might as well have not bothered putting on all the camo, because the grill would be a dead give away to it being a V

    This is just my opinion, Not meant to offend anyone but this STS does absolutly nothing for me. Just being honest thats all.

    The CTS-V on the other hand > gives me an erection and thats the Truth.
