Hi folks,
today I´ve seen the first STS V at Coral-Cadillac in Pompano Beach Fl.
I checked this out over Cadillac`s Inventury search.
Window Sticker Price $ 77.090 incl 2.100 gas guzzler tax. It`s Black in black.

MCaesar,
I can send you some pics from STS V, XLR V and of my XLR if you give me an Email adr. I Tried to post them but "file too big" - that`s what I get.

Good! You may be the first to actually do a test drive of the STSV on the autobahn when its available. Let us know what you think. I have driven lesser cars on the Bahn in Germany - but it certainly lets you test the limits of any car if you have the nerve.

Sure I have the nerve!
I´ve had 3 C5 Vette`s
98 Vette Coupe auto 289 kph top speed 179 mph
01 Vette vert auto 297 kph top speed 184 mph
02 Vette vert 6 sp 304 kph top speed 189 mph

Now I have a 04 XLR with Corsa exhaust - top speed 289 kph ( 179 mph) this is the export model, not governed. Analog stops at 260 kph but HUD goes up to 289 kph

Hope the export XLR or STS V is not governed, if yes i`ll keep my XLR or might get a C6 Z06.

Happy New Year
Harry

The next time I'm in Germany, I'll keep my eye out for you. For now I'll have to settle for the roads in Colorado which are now treacherous in the mountains.

Happy New Year to you as well.

OK Rich, if you ever in the Wuerzburg/Nuernberg area just come up and see me, we`ll go for a ride on the autobahn:welcome:

I hope you`ll like doing 60 miles in 27 minutes:cool2: , I did this with my 02 Vette.

I was in Munich in the fall of 2004 for Oktoberfest and have been to Frankfurt several times. Last time I was in Munich I rented a BMW 3 series and traveled mostly the small back roads along the Austria/Germany border around Garmisch, Fussen, and Lindau at Lake Konstanz. Great scenery and some twisty roads in the Alps. I did manage to drive ~100 miles on the autobahn during this trip. I think I did average near 120 mph on one stretch which is great if you need to catch a plane.

Haven't been to Nurnberg - if I get up that way I'll let you know. Maybe you'll have your V by then.

Hi Rich.
you mean lake Bodensee, Konstanz is a town there.
Wuerzburg/Nuernberg is between Frankfurt and Munich, so the next time you here watch out for the sign Kitzingen, that`s where I`m.

I go a lot for business in the Frankfurt area and from Aschaffenburg - Frankurt, where the 3 lanes begin I usually get my car 0ver 160 mph there.
The look in my back mirror makes anything shrink fast:histeric:

Have a nice week

Harry

Harry, I'll see what color they have when I call. I wonder what the salesman will do when I whip out my camera........he'll probably make me buy the car :bouncy:
Edit: Nice pics. I think the car would look even hotter with the CTS-V wheels!

Kadonny, I saw these wheels in Frankfurt at the IAA, they also look good, but you`re right, the STS V 8 on our export model have the wheels and brembos from the CTS V, and they also look good.
Hey, if it`s black-raven / light gray - j u s t b u y i t:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

thanks

And I was just about ready to pull the trigger on a CTS-V, but now I MUST go drive the STS-V just for sh**s and giggles.

Hell, I did the lease calculater on the Cadillac site and it will only be about 250 more dollars a month for an STS-V over the CTS-V. But performance is where I still think the CTS wins.
