    -V cars are supercharged. They have their beauties and their warts. Dig into the CTS-V and STS-V forums for insight.

    Edmonds was a bit off...the v did not have the adaptive cruise control due to the revised front grill. ( something I would never trust anyway ) I know for 2006, the v added the 6 speed auto over the 5-speed.

    From a performance standpoint, this is still a luxury roadster vs. a sports car. The best rear-end differential ratio would be 3.08 ( certain trap speed, trans ratio & rear wheel torque taken into account ), which could shave off over 1/2 sec on the quarter. Yet it still has the 2.56... which is fine if you want to roll along at 1500 rpm doing 75.

    On the plus side, there is a rear stabilizer bar ( this can, and should be added to the base for a song ), and a pneumatically operated secondary exhaust bypass ( which allows you to install that aftermarket mild to wild switch vette owners often do)
