Here's the tale of the tape - how GM's Bob Lutz and his Cadillac CTS-V matches up to me in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR heading into tomorrow's Jalopnik Vs GM race at Monticello Motor Club.

Despite being more similar in weight and size than you'd expect, the Evo is still significantly lighter and smaller than the CTS-V, but the Cadillac obviously has a huge power and torque advantage. Perhaps more tellingly, the Evo can lap the 12.93 miles of fast corners on the Nurburgring within 12 seconds of the CTS-V. Tomorrow, we'll see what that gap looks like after 4.1 miles of tight turns and one long straight.
