    Don't care how much it is going to weigh at this point. They completely screwed up the styling. Just like so many other current sedans, they overbaked it.

    I doubt the V guys set out to be slower then the M series guys... in any aspect. The E90 M3 has been out since 2007 and has had 420hp since then. To 'battle' the future M3 with 420hp would be a mistake. Even with 450 would be a mistake. Odds are the new M3 will be closer to 500. Fully optioned ATS weighs 3700ish. I don't see how the TT 3.6L can weigh less then the 3.6L, as mentioned here. I'm expecting the following:

    ATS-V; 3650 lbs with 480hp
    CTS-V; 3800 lbs with 620hp

    Best case weight and worse case horsepower scenario

    I think the V stands a decent amount of chance against whatever they put it against. Look at the V2 comparos. Everyone hailed it for its price per horsepower bargain, its handling, and its interior. There really was not much negatives I heard in big wig comparisons.

    The only place I've ever seen stock Vs line up against stock Ms has been in a camera for MotorTrend or InsideLine or some Youtube car channel. There is absolutely no denying the modability of the V2 powertrain platform, which with less money, will pull an F10 M5 with no issue. Intake, Pulley, Tune will get you above 580hp crank in the LSA with no problem.
    Base is going to weigh in a little bit over 3600 pounds. That is INSANELY good, and 200 pounds lighter than the 5 series with which it will compete, and the A6 as well.

    I own an ATS, and if the driving dynamics of the ATS are transferred over to the CTS with the new engine... i want out of my lease.

    If the TT version CTS is called the Vsport that doesn't mean there won't be a V8 V correct?

    Yeah, as I read somewhere, think of a Vsport as an M-sport. A pumped up version of the base model, including maybe some light cosmetic changes, but not at all the full deal like a real CTS-V or a real M5.

    We'll still get a real CTS-V with a V8, probably making around 600hp, under 4.0 second 0-60 hopefully, and darn it we better get a manual for it too... These base CTS's will have no manual...

    Anyway, only thing I'm really bummed about is no CTS coupe. This ATS coupe better make up for it, but then the ATS-V coupe likely won't have a V8. It'll likely have this TT 3.6L.
    I really want a V8 powered V coupe....

    One thing I love about this new car is that the instrument cluster is going to be (at least on some variants) an LCD screen which will be configurable to
    show just basic instruments, or more instruments if you want. I figured that was coming and it's a feature I want.

    Problem is, the car will probably have to be used and at least six or seven years old before I can afford it. I'll just have to wait...or buy more lottery tickets.


    I envision a car with a full glass cockpit and sidestick controller, someday. No steering wheel. And...either front seater can drive it.

    The 3.6 has a tuff as nails crank/rods/pistons already and we have 500 hp super charged, single and twin turbo builds all over the world holding up fine.

    Been force feeding these for a few years now.

    Very impressed with the specs of this car. Just I'm not going to spend the money when the outside(back half of the car) is grandpa styling. Ugly. Put a much cooler back end on this car and you would have a head turner, a real winner people would want to drop big bucks on.

    My supercharged AWD 3.6DI runs great. No problems with it holding up. It embarrasses Camaro SS and Mustang GT owners on the surface streets and highway.

    What's your usual turn around time with something like that?

    It's $6900 complete. Installed, tuned, complete to kick but. DMCEDDoc has had his AWD newer one SC'd for somewhere around a year now? And kicjs but all over the place.

    Add $999 for the 3600 stall converter (helps 3-4 tenths in the 1/4 mile).

    Turn around time once here is 2-3 weeks (we drive it for 4-5 days to make sure no issues pop up as its along way back if its not correct, and tuning takes a few days).

    The car is amazing when finished 2wd or AWD.

    Anyone wanting to schedule, May is the earliest we can fit the next ones in. We have 16 cars in right now. SC, single turbo, twin turbo, heads/cam(s) both V6 & V8.

    Call direct for details: 941-721-1826

    Have dealers in Germany, Russia, PRC (China), Australia, and the US (we are in Palmetto, FL between Sarasota and Tampa).

    We do V8's (started doing FI in the mid 1970's) steady to 100-1200 rwhp and up if the budget is there.

    Here is a twin turbo Z06 we did a few years ago....even with sticky Nittos had to be over 100 mph to come into full boost w/out instantly blowing tires up in smoke:
