My cts-v 2012 Cadillac is the sweetest car are vehicle I have ever owned. This one is perfect.
In speed, control,looks and even the Diamond White paint, that is bug proof !!
In the big citys....pass a 60 mph car in 2 sec. Speed might be 110 mph for 1 sec..then your at 75 mph and 6 car lengths ahead. No speeding tickets because its to fast to slow down , with heavy duty breaks.
My own dad is old fashined, and he thinks we just went 75 mph to make that pass, which was 110 mph.I would never do that unless it was safe!
Houston traffic, is a cake walk ! No car is found so far in 6 months to be = to yet.
I took 1500 miles to break in my V car. ( 4000 Rpms are less, an no 0-100 starts.)
3000 miles later and here it is, way above what the tract experts say. My CTS-V Cadillac..White Diamond Sedan = 0-60 in 2.8 sec. 0- 100mph in 6.7 sec. 0- 131 mph in 11.2 sec. 60 mph - 202 mph = 1.7 miles ! ( open FM Road ) I took 2 long miles to slow down with out using the brakes, if anyone was wondering if I burned them.
After slowing to 125 mph....it was like going 30 mph ! This car is so unbelivable, I fell in love with it ! ( This car with the right driver, which is me. I would never indanger anyone. All road test was done on a Farm to Market Road, that I carefully picked out on a cool 60 degree 9:00 am Saterday! With no side roads.)
This car would get you out of trouble , just as fast as you would get into it.
The best thing about this car is it looks like a cool ...sleek and un-intimadating car. But under it all you would SHOCK a NASCAR driver on his own race tract!!
I can"t tell you how many BMWs and even Nice looking Camaros.. ( 2011 and 2012 models ) Blew them away because the desighn of the cts-v cadillac catches no air. Its a FLYING RAPTER JET. The added weight is the trick I think. ( 4200 lbs curb wt. ) It seems unlimited, when it comes to speed. I have 40 years driving time. But if you have 10 years and level headed, you would be safe driving my car.
All of which is in "sport mode" buttons of course. When you exit my car....it automaticly turns back safe for the wife to drive. ( ALMOST )
In any event , at 202 mph I felt it wanting to go faster. But at 6150 rpms I Let off the gas.
Still driving to town for milk and bread, and my car purrss like a kitten and little does anyone know, they are right next to a tiger!
Last week a 2011 vett lost on the last red light out of town, against my cts-v! The vett weighs 480 lbs less than the "V".
I rest my case :)
P.S.- I am a Cessana Piolet. This car took me faster on the ground than I have been in the air! My airplane redlines at 160 notts.
