Question 2009 Caddy CTS-v has 600 hp. damn!

stolen from here;
2009 Cadillac CTS-v

Man, thats a ton of power. It would need at least 345s + 13 inch rears to handle that. Do people who buy these cars (think m5 competitor!) really want something with that much power?

I dunno. 600hp would be pretty cool. I'm not sure that I would turn it down.

Though I think 400hp is about the upper limit for a reasonable daily driver.

i'm glad to see GM building a few badass cars.

it'll definitely attract the attention of some would-be M5 buyers.

The new G37 is rated at 330, the BMW 335 is pushing just over 300, while the new M3 is going to be pumping out 420.

You sir, are correct.

That's exactly what the octogenarians need, 600hp to drive 20 under the speed limit.

IIRC the current CTS-v is capable of running high 12's bone stock with a good driver- that's pretty damn quick for a heavy luxury car.

Is that even relevant? People don't buy these types of cars for the mileage.

^ Yeah, maybe - similar to the other 600 hp sedans (Mercedes) and about 20% better than the 200 hp cars everyone drove in the 1970's (small-block Caprices, LTD's, etc.)

it'll probably come with 'displacement on demand' along with an ultra-tall 6th gear so it can limp around at low RPMs and on less cylinders... it'll probably get 18mpg on the highway.

but as was stated... with 600hp, who cares? if you can afford it you should be able to afford gas for it.

EDIT: I believe you are right carbnjunkie

I bet it comes with the LS6 or whatever the new Z06 motor is.

With 500 HP, the new Z06 is rated at 14/24 for fuel economy. 13/18 sounds reasonable for another 100 HP... maybe a bit more on the highway, like 20-21.

My boss just got a new one of those and its mean. But you have to do to much stuff to actually drive it hard. If your in normal driving mode and get on it, it will only let you go from 1st to 4th. Then when you set the ecu to competition driving mode if you really get on it it will do the same. And finally after you have it switched to comp mode theres a switch in the glove box you have to hit to remove all the restrictions so you can go through the gears. To much work imo for when you want to goose it every once in awhile.

The first to fourth is a common feature for the 6spd / V8s, it kicks in a certain low throttle. If you exceed it by putting your foot down, it won't send you to fourth. Also it is easy to just pull the fuse, not at all like BMW with their take your car to the dealer to see how much oil you have left.

Way to miss the point, still terrible for a 400hp car.

Yep my friends LS1 is this way. You can remove the solenoid all together (its on the side of the trans).
