While lesser CTS models pack direct injection V6 units, only a rumbling V8 would do for the performance flagship. And the LS7 powerplant is one hell of an engine. The dry-sumped bent eight is hand-finished, features titanium con-rods, a forged steel crankshaft and develops 512bhp at 6300rpm and a mighty 470lb ft at 4800rpm, making it GM’s most powerful passenger car engine and largest-displacement small-block to date.

It’s hooked up to a slick Tremec six-speed manual transmission, driving all four wheels through GM’s all-wheel drive architecture that’s been tuned for a natural rear-drive feel. In a bid to trim development costs, it’s likely that the engine will be dropped into the CTS-V wholesale, giving the Cadillac some serious tyre-shredding performance.

Anyone with the self proclaimed name of Lord Cadillac is by definition placed on another level of expecations above the common fodder. Hence by not following the rules of this society by placing all speculation in the proper thread and on top of that bringing us old information - banishment fits the crime.

Hello,
Interesting....I know they thought about doing this with the STS-V but it became tough to package. It would be very interesting if they did something like this for the new CTS-V. But given the abuse the drivetrain would be susceptible to, I don’t think this would be feasible. Too much torque = drivetrain nightmares!

Thanks,
