Today GM officially unveiled the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V. Yes, the same CTS-V that we have seen again and again. Don't fret, we're still salivating over it. The CTS-V delivers 550 horsepower at 550 lb.-ft of torque with its 6.2-liter supercharged V8. It is available in six speed manual transmission or automatic with paddle shifters. For the suspension, Magnetic Ride Control ensures that all shocks of the road are absorbed and the Performance Traction Management system should keep all wheels on the road. It will be launching in the fourth quarter of 2008.
I'm no fan of GM and the soon-to-be late chief Lutz. But god! What a machine!! Why the hell can't this technology percolate down to the lesser models? Also, to the guy who keeps harping on the 20 mpg factor of this 550HP SUPERCAR, I bet your real name starts with a 'P' and rhymes with 'Lutz'! How many 550HP cars do you know that get even 10 mpg??
