Cadillac V-Series Driving Lab @ COTA - Dec 2012
This is a few laps in a Cadillac CTS-V coupe during a Cadillac V-Series Driving Lab held at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) during the weekend of Dec 7-9, 2012. I ran in the morning group on Friday, Dec 7th, so AFAIK my run group was the first batch of "outsiders" to drive @ COTA following the Formula1 debut of the track in November. The V-Series Driving Lab was a very cool event, particularly because of it being held @ COTA. I've got quite a bit of track time in my 2005 CTS-V, so running on the newest world-class motorsports venue in the world in a newer V was an opportunity I couldn't pass up! There were 3 stages to the Driving Lab. (1) An auto-cross type setup with a 0-60 "drag strip", stop box, evasive lane change, and slalom. This segment was done in the new Cadillac ATS with the 3.6L V-6 and automatic transmission. (2) A familiarization session on the track in either a CTS-V sedan or wagon (I drove a wagon). The instructor did the first lap to show each driver the line, then pulled back into the pits, swapped positions, and then the driver went out for a couple laps. (3) An additional session on the track in a CTS-V coupe set up with cameras and GPS and g sensors. Since we had already been out on the track once, the instructor did not do a familiarization lap, so each driver got another 3 hot laps in. Apparently there were a few manual transmission CTS-Vs in the mix, but both of the cars I drover were automatics, and I didn't bother trying to mess with the shift buttons on the back of the steering wheel. Interspersed with the driving sessions were tech / advertising sessions with presenters from Cadillac and Cadillac's various partners on the ATS and CTS-V (Brembo, Recaro, and Michelin). The Brembo session was the most informative, as the representative recognized the knowledge level of the group and let us ask more technical questions (rather than him just giving us his "standard" spiel). Each of the instructors I had in the cars with me was friendly and experienced (they all had racing experience at various levels). Andy Pilgrim from the Cadillac Racing Team was on hand to show off the championship-winning CTS-V coupe race car and to answer questions. I've met him at a previous Cadillac event and he was once again very approachable and knowledgeable. All in all, it was a fantastic event, and very well run by the Cadillac folks. If you have the opportunity to get to a V-Series Driving Lab, I highly recommend it!

Redline Review: 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
With the smaller ATS now in the lineup, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is finally free to move up-market in size, power, and prestige. The all-new third-generation CTS showcases a lot of firsts for the Cadillac brand. The first twin-turbo engine, 8-speed transmission, and a plethora of luxury and technology makes this one of the best mid-size luxury sedans money can buy. If you want the best handling vehicle in the segment, look no further, your sport sedan has arrived.

134296 / 1970 Cadillac DeVille
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/qghjtdo Mixing one of the biggest and smoothest V8s GM ever produced with mirror-like paint and a spacious, comfortable interior, this classy DeVille puts a new twist on 'Standard of The World'. And if you've always dreamed of owning a big American cruiser that's high on style and loaded with comfort, it's just the opportunity you've been waiting for! Not completely devoid of character, like so many traditional, frame-off restorations, this road-ready drop-top is an exhilarating combination of factory-correct blitz and tasteful glam. Appearing both solemn and official, its Jet Black paint reflects an excellent shine that literally glows when crouching under the sun. And that modern two-stage covers what appears to be clean, mostly original sheetmetal which displays no sign of botched repairs or historic damage. Cadillac, once the world's leading proprietor of fine, 16-cylinder motor coaches, knows a thing or two about performance. For example, this convertible's correct, 472 cubic inch monster block, which is one of the largest V8s ever produced, turns stout 10 to 1 compression into a smooth 375 horsepower. And while GM Powertrain did provide engines that generated more power, this mill was designed to idle silently, create instantaneous thrust and emit merely a whisper from its tailpipe. Judging by the appearance of the car's satin black bay, it's been on a regular maintenance schedule, benefitting from periodic, full-scale detailing. Many of the motor's original ancillary items have been replaced by flashier hardware including: a chrome, single-snorkel air cleaner, chrome valve covers, a polished radiator overflow and an HEI distributor that's complete with 8mm Hi Temp wires. And thanks to two Optima gel cell batteries, the car fires so smoothly you may not even notice it's running. Behind that big engine, an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed spins a traditional GM 12-bolt that's complete with smooth 2.98 gears. Speaking of smooth, the car's long and low suspension, which is augmented with Air Ride Technologies air bags, glides over almost any imperfection with virtually no drama. And all that proven hardware rolls on slick Centerline Smoothies which spin 245/40R20 Firestone Firehawks around detailed Cadillac crests. If you're a fan of big time comfort, you'll be absolutely thrilled by this DeVille's custom black interior! The '63 Cadillac front and chopped rear seats are firm, supple and display virtually no signs of aging. In front of those half power, half manual seats, a modernist, crack-free dash hangs a contoured instrument panel between a billet mirror, a modern Pioneer CD player, controls for the car's Air Ride Technologies suspension and chrome-trimmed foot pedals. In front of the driver, a custom '59 Cadillac steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a tilting column and simple chrome gear selector. And behind the passengers, a Dynamat-lined trunk seals a giant subwoofer behind a Pioneer CD changer, two JL Audio amps, a small bass tube, a fifth Centerline/Firestone combo and a small, South County Customs jack. This DeVille is an extremely high-quality cruiser with no question marks attached. Don't miss your opportunity to own one of the coolest Caddys on the planet!

Ford's response to Cadillac's ELR ad
During the Winter Olympics, Cadillac aired an ad for their new ELR (Cadilac's version of the Chevy Volt hybrid) that some saw as a little pretentious. Ford countered with a version of that ad for their electric Focus that appeals to the rest of us. Well done, Ford.
