    Not bad but looks SO much like the CTS-V, it's kind of silly, IMO.

    i like it....but im guessing the price will be a joke. the regular STS tops out at ~62k, so a loaded V is gonna be over 70k easy. and at that point i would just pay the extra for an M5 or E55, both of which have more horsepower

    Wow, Very nice! That thing looks really mean! Since it's supercharged, I'll bet it's a real torque monster. Also, I think this car will really give the E55 a good run, maybe even be as quick. The AMG only has 29 more horse power, and almost definately weighs more. I can't wait to see how they stack up. I woulnd't even be suprised if it performs similar to the M5. The 500 hp number on the bimmer sure does look nice, but its performance numbers don't really seem "500hp quick". Also the M's torque doesn't even crack the 400 lb/ft level. (384 i think)
    I will be very interested in how they price this. Since they obviously won't be using AWD and will probably be droping some luxury weight, it may not be as high as one might guess. Or here's hoping!!

    Something about the side profile of this car makes me feel silly, giddy, and evil all at the same time. If this car comes in at $70k, I WILL own one within a year or two. Way to go Cadillac!!!

    I think if anyone dares to do a side by side comparo of this, the M5 and the E55, it's gonna be a WAY lop-sided contest. But I'd at least read the article.

    Yeah, I guess it's not fair to pick on the little Kraut Karts like that, huh?

    Am i the only one dissapointed by the 440hp? Considering how low the cts-vs are dynoing, and then you add in the wheel hop, 440 in real terms is more like 350....Maybe i was crazy to be thinking it should be in the 475 range

    You know, I keep reading the complaints about the "low" rwhp of the CTS-V, and yet you read articles like the one in the upcoming Motor Trend comparison and find the "V" out accelerates both the '05 GTO and the '05 425 HP Chrysler hemi C. What more are we looking for here? And remember, the CTS-V is not meant to be a dragster!

    I like it! If you cannot get along with 440 hp and 4 doors with an automatic then go buy a Viper and stop complaining.

    Given how far Cadillac has come in such a short time this is nothing less than incredible!

    Any word on whether it will be available in AWD? Any performance numbers?
