We are in the final design stages of a new hood for the 09+ CTS V's. Here are some pictures of it going onto our mill for laser scanning and finally milling.

I like the louvers, but the bulge looks a tad bit tall from the side. Just my opinion.

The hood comes in at about 30mm higher than the production CTS V hood.

Are those extractors going to be functional? Looks killer. :thumbsup:

Yes, they will be functional extractors. At this point we are laser scanning the driver side of the hood, once we make it to the centerline we will mirror the image and mill it out to the passenger side.

After that we will come back and hand model it to a perfect surface. When that is complete, we will build our first tool off of the clay model.

doubt it will be lighter...usually fiberglass. The thin aluminum on the V is hard to beat weight-wise.

I'm liking the hood but am very interested in your progress on the front splitter. Any word on this? Any wip pics?

The spoiler is in the master tooling phase. Should have parts ready in the next couple weeks.

A diffuser would be nice. Ether gray or body color (mine is white). Would really enhance the rear look if it had a steep enough angle with some vertical pillars.
