Cadillac Style – CTS-V Posts a 10-Second Quarter-Mile

November 5th, 2015

Cadillac with drag radials or not, if you sport a personalized tag plate the reads “IWALKU” then you better have something under the hood. As you can see in this video, this guy has it in spades. If you have never seen the likes of a Cadillac dogging out Camaros and Mustangs, then you’ll definitely want to see his clip. IWALKU lays down three sub 11-second passes (10.52 @ 131, 10.54 @ 130, and 10.57 @ 130) in one night of dig racing at the local track – that ain’t too shabby by any standards. The CTS-V’s running a stock Read More

Cadillac CTS-V Battles Dodge Viper on the Street

October 29th, 2015

In the real world of street racing Caddys don’t rub fenders with Vipers – or do they? In this clip at least one Cadillac not only takes on an SRT Viper but leaves it in its tracks. This video consists of two passes. In the first pass, the Viper has the go-go juice turned up to 1,100 psi and he gives the CTS-V a decent run.  In the second run, the Viper turns the laughing gas down to 900 psi and only puts forth a paltry effort, at best. Both cars are equipped with a healthy dose of NOS from Read More

Street Racing – New Mexico Style

October 23rd, 2015

This video is over 6-minutes of heads-up dig (and roll) racing on the streets of New Mexico. All the likely suspects are present and the action is “muy caliente”. Here are some of the highlights from racing into the New Mexico night. A 740hp 2004 Subaru WRX STi with a Precision 6466 turbocharger destroys a 600hp WRX STi. The Terminator Mustang Cobra takes apart a 700hp all-wheel drive Honda Civic, a 400hp Dodge Neon, and gives a 750hp Mitsubishi Evo a good run for his money. A 600hp twin turbocharged Infiniti G35 goes against a 630hp Cadillac CTS-V and a Read More

Hellcat Slayer? Cadillac CTS-V Street Racer

September 7th, 2015

It’s street racing – south of the border style and we got a pair of bad-axs Cadillacs lining up against all comers. The first one is equipped with a 125 shot of nitrous, a camshaft upgrade, and a crank pulley upgrade. He says that he’s making somewhere in the “high sixes” (kinda’ tongue in cheek, if you ask me). He then proceeds to walk the dog on a 750hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat with an aftermarket driveshaft and an E85 tune. Both cars are supercharged from the factory. Next up is a pretty blue Corvette Z06 with a 250 shot of Read More

Airstrip Assault Supercar Showdown

August 11th, 2015

This skilled videographer has managed to capture some very competitive head-to-head roll racing on a closed airstrip. There are representations from many of the big exotic manufacturers – Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and McLaren. The domestic bad boys showed up, too. There are Dodge Vipers and Challengers, Chevrolet Camaros and Corvettes, Cadillac CTS-Vs, and a scarce few Ford Mustangs. The imports include some Nissan GT-Rs and Toyota Supras (it’s alright to assume they are turbocharged). There is even an old ice cream truck and a 700+hp Volkswagen Golf. These lucky competitors line up at one end of the airstrip and start Read More

Girl on Girl Action – Drag Racing That Is

June 17th, 2015

Nearly every red-blooded American male loves a good catfight; a little slap and tickle or a late night pillow fight between two beautiful women. This clip shows something even better than that. Here is some girl on girl action (blonde vs. brunette, no less) with the added attraction of some awesome automobiles travelling at high speeds. In the left lane we have Jessica (the blonde) in her stock C7 Z06 Corvette (supercharged 6.2-liter V8). This is her first time. Her first pass down the drag strip – you rascals – but she is confident in her Chevy. In the right lane Read More

2010 Cadillac CTS-V vs 2012 Nissan GT-R Drag Racing

May 6th, 2011

We’ve got some great video footage of a modified 2010 Cadillac CTS-V running heads up against a bone stock 2012 Nissan GT-R. The CTS-V which normally comes with 556 horsepower has been modified with a modified supercharger pulley to up the boost pressure, headers, full exhaust along with some cooling and tuning upgrades. We estimate the CTS-V picked up around 80-100 HP with the modifications. It’s a close race with the stock 2012 530HP GT-R edging out the CTS-V by just a bit with the CTS-V running 11.38 @ 122.71 MPH vs the GT-R running 11.19 @ 124.26 MPH.

Cadillac CTS-V on Nitrous runs 9.8 @ 139.7 MPH

January 17th, 2011

Take a look at this wicked Cadillac CTS-V running a 9.85 @ 139.7 MPH at Palm Beach International Raceway. Running a healthy 200 progressive shot of nitrous on a motor with forged internals and stock supercharger this CTS-V was able to pull a decent 1.54 60′ time on a set of drag radials. Other modifications include kooks headers, different supercharger pulleys along with a LS3 throttle body and a LPE cold air induction kit. Running through a stock transmission and torque converter, this CTS-V put down 865 horsepower and 850 ft-lbs of torque at the rear wheels. With a conservative Read More

800HP 2009 Cadillac CTS-V on Nitrous runs 10.32 @ 136.7 MPH

March 25th, 2010

The current generation Cadillac CTS-V with it’s Corvette ZR1 derived LSA motor pumping out 556HP was highly anticipated to be the baddest/fastest/quickest current 4 door sedan available. While it’s certainly powerful, the track numbers have always been kind of disappointing in stock form running low to mid 12’s in the 1/4 mile, something the Mercedes AMG sedans have been doing for years. Of course knowing what it’s motor is capable of, pumping out 638HP in the ZR1, and even more when modified, the CTS-V was set for a nice rush of aftermarket performance support. The Vette Doctors took a 2009 Read More
