    Orders can be placed August 4

    The order bank will open for orders on August 4, according to latest info. The 2005 production is slated for 1,600 cars. The dealers with higher CTS-V and STS sales will be getting more cars allocated than the ones with lower sales. So, for those serious about this car, I would find my spot in line.

    The early cars are due to hit showrooms in October, at least that is the current estimate. The orders can be placed the 4th, the first production scheduling will be the last week of August. Since there is generally a six week turnaround time, the timeframe will be October, not September. Sorry.

    2005 production is 1600 cars? Do you mean production for the entire 2006 model year?

    That is the indication on the production numbers. Harry, we are being told that the XLR-V will follow a similar allocation formula, and it is expected to be in showrooms in November/December time frame. I will keep you posted on that.

    Well at least all the speculation should go away once August 4th comes. We'll see final options , color choices and hopefully prices. The forum can then be the subject of a new level of topics!

    I agree but its probably a good thing. No one really knows for sure how this thing is going to fly. Its probably a good idea to start off with a moderate number and go up from there if necessary.

    Well, the 2005 model year will be abbreviated with a Sept-Oct launch. 1600 seems about right.

    But only 1600 units does not give me a lot of time to make a decision on the car I would think.

    I was hoping to see one, drive one, then see if I still had interest. All these cars might be bought sight unseen.

    STS will have 469hp/439 lb/ft of torque hp@6400rpm/torque@3600.

    14" front/14.4" rear brakes-4 piston Brembo brakes.

    Y rated tires
    Bose 5.1/DVD navigation/6 disc changer/XM sound system

    The 1600 vehicles is estimated for first year, approx two thousand per year after that.

    Pricing has not been decided, but is estimated in the 70-up range.

    Not a lot of new order info, but the pricing is supposed to be available sometime in August.

    Hi msheri01,
    the brakes the STS V get on we have it already on our german export model.
    As you can see it on pics I´ve posted here the europe STS (only the V8) got the brakes and wheels of the CTS V on it. Only with 255 tires all around, not 245s as the CTS V got on.
    469 horses sounds real good to me, that makes in german rating about 475.

    My XLR has in US rating 320 but here it`s 326, some with the northstar STS.

    Have a nice day and thanks

    Harry
