Cadillac CTS-V

Cadillac CTS-V is a model in Cadillac's V-Series line of high performance vehicles, introduced in 2004. The CTS-V is currently in use in the Speed World Challenge GT series, with racing cars built and run by Pratt & Miller.

A supercharged 6.2 liter LSA V-8, based on the LS9 V-8 from the recently released Corvette ZR1, is the powerplant in the 2009 CTS-V. It produces 556 hp (415 kW) and 551 lb·ft (747 N·m) of torque. The LSA engine has a bore and stroke of 4.06 x 3.62 inches (103.25 x 92.0 mm).[5] There are manual and automatic transmission choices, a six speed transmission with a short-throw shifter and dual clutch surface flywheel, or a paddle shift conventional (planetary gearing and torque converter-based) automatic six speed. There will also be LED flash tracers to tell the driver when to shift. For the first time, Cadillac will offer 14-way adjustable performance Recaro seats. To improve the handling and comfort, the 2009 CTS-V uses Delphi Corporation’s MagneRide technology. The dampers, filled with magnetorheological fluid, are adjusted based on sensor readings that happen at 1ms intervals. The power-to-weight ratio of the CTS-V is similar to that of the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, which was labeled as the fastest sedan that Edmunds.com has ever tested.

The 2009 CTS-V has a base price of US$59,995, and is available for purchase as of November 1 2008.
