CTS-V Has Impressive Numbers

The old saying goes 'Don't bring a knife to a gun fight', and it looks like the Cadillac CTS-V will be bringing a whole arsenal to the super sedan battle. Although we already knew that the CTS-V would be packing a version of the Chevrolet Corvette's supercharged LSA motor, its final performance numbers are quite astonishing.

According to Edmunds, the CTS-V will be taking on the BMW M5 with a 556 horsepower, 551 lb-ft of torque version of GM's supercharged 6.2L V8. Although those figures are detuned from the ZR1, they will still likely trump the figures of the next-generation M5.

With all that power aboard, Cadillac says the CTS-V can rocket from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, on its way to a 12 second flat quarter mile — performance numbers normally reserved for supercars.

A CTS-V equipped with an automatic transmission will be able to hit 175 mph, while a six-speed manual car will be able to top out at 191.

Wow, too bad it can't go 200 just for bragging rights, but those numbers are very impressive. 0-60 in 3.9 is faster than a regular Corvette.

Wow, let's hope it doesn't have the axle hop of the old one. Did they upgrade the transmission?

Yes and the magnetic ride control will pretty much take care of the axle hop. FYI axle hop was a problem only in 2004 and 2005 vehicles. It was eliminated in 2006.
