Re: First Drive: 2008 Cadillac CTS - Motor Trend

Hotness, they tested it at Nurburing?!

Though MT has a slight Domestic sway, and an even larger 3-series sway:




The new CTS deserves a creamy BMW six under the hood. Yes, it's that good.
More important, the CTS drives like a proper BMW rival. It's light and agile on its feet, with quick steering response yet impressive straight-line stability at speed, and a StabiliTrak system that's beautifully tuned to be almost unobtrusive in its interventions.
The new CTS isn't quite the Standard of the World. But it's certainly world class. The best damn Cadillac sedan in 50 years? Easily.

Re: First Drive: 2008 Cadillac CTS - Motor Trend

Even our CTSs were tested and tuned at Nurburing.

I like the car I guess. Im not a huge fan of the shape but I do like it. I guess Im just biased towards my CTS. The interior is difnately way nicer than my CTS but for some reason I hate how that steering wheel looks. I do love that big sun roof!!

one other thing- I say, bring it on you DI bitches. My non DI 3.6 CTS can hit a 5.9 zero to 60!! :gun2:

Road Test - 2008 Cadillac CTS - Car & Driver

Another FYI for the information hungry...
A "Road Test" report on the 2008 Cadillac CTS is now available at CarandDriver.com
Here is the link:
http://www.caranddriver.com/roadtests/13537/2008-cadillac-cts.html
C & D's 'road test' (and MT's 'first drive') articles will appear in the September magazine issues. Similar reports should also be found in the Sept. issues of Road & Track and Automobile.
Cheers
Rab

As Mr. Lutz said, the best products come when a company is just about dead :D

Now the vehicles that will try to keep GM afloat, the GMT900 hybrids...

This is an American car with a German chassis: not exactly like a Mercedes or a BMW, but taut, tied down, nicely balanced, and stable at high speeds.
You know, I am really getting sick and f**kin tired of MT, CD, and RT always putting MB and BMW up on the pedestal. These idiots are a big part of the reason there is such a bias against American cars. And why BMW and MB owners are so friggin snooty. F**k em. :rant2:

I love that new interior. Gotta get that transplanted into the V.

I feel like I could slap on the 08 bumper and grille and my 03 would lose 5 years.
