2010 Bentley Continental vs Cadillac CTS-V
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2010 Bentley Continental Suspersports will set you back $286.845 and it is the most powerful car that Bentley has ever built with a Twin turbo W-12 6.0L engine that produces 621 HP. The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is a mere $ 68,445 and is the fastest production four door sedan on the market today with a supercharged V8 from the Corvette ZR-1 that produces 556 HP. Perhaps just as importantly the two premium luxury sports cars best demonstrate the difference of flying business vs. flying first class. So what exactly does $200,000 more buy?





2010 Cadillac CTS-V
The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is a competent sedan that holds water against its German competitors but will stick in our heads because of its brute "wow"-inducing acceleration. The car just has power in droves, hindered only by the automatic transmission necessary gear changes and some split second indecisiveness under part-to-full throttle changes. It is neck-snapping head-rush-generating thrill ride with gobs of flat always-there force that just never relents until you back down. This engine isn't simply a moderately powerful V-8 slipped under the Cadillac's hood. It is a ZR1-dervied 556-hp motor that provides a deep V-8 burble with a smidge of Supercharger whine and designed to do one thing: to push its occupants to the upper echelons of the speedometer. Speaking of the speedometer, despite sitting front and center and having the more spacious pod all to itself, it felt small and hard to read on anything but mundane driving. It doesn't really matter because it is best to keep your eyes on the large (extremely large) number that sits on the small screen perfectly located under the rpm gauge in the first pod; that number combined with the revs will give you a good idea of how fast you are going in more spirited driving. More importantly it will allow you to pop off the necessary gear changes with the F1-style paddles located on the back of the steering wheel when in the six-speed automatic's manual mode. Move too quick and you won't get the most power; move too slow and you will slam into the rev-limiter. That rpm gauge comes with a nice line of red glowing dots that follow the needle in its half circle rotation and help you quickly determine how far before the next gear change. The ride in the Cadillac CTS-V is tight—enhanced by the way the seats suck you in and hold you snug like a mom's bear hug after her child's first stint at summer camp—and solid: no shakes, shimmers, or unnecessary rattles; the car is built extremely well. It corners flat with a touch of understeer and with tons of tenacious grip that even the raw power of this motor has a hard time breaking. The small-diameter microfiber-covered steering wheel is very low in telepathy and provides little feedback when the Magnetic Ride Control Suspension system is in touring mode. In fact, it is more disconnected than it probably should be, with some yacht-like feelings where the movement of the steering wheel doesn't always cause the reaction you think it should. The Stabilitrak system is there to provide the small nudges that Boost confidence but is never intrusive and never saps the power or life out of the car or drive. Immense stopping power is provide by the car's huge 15-inch rotors up front and 14.7-inch rotors at the rear. The inside of the CTS-V can be summed up in one word: "shiny"; giving our test car an air of cheapness. The dashboard and center console in our tester had glossy, easily scratched black plastic instead of wood inlays. To add even more glare in a bright day, polished aluminum trim encircles each zone of the dashboard. Like the angular exterior, the interior also has some sharp edges. Although these provide the car with its trademark stand-out-in-a-pack looks, the angles can be do right painful, literally. Hit the crease in the trunk lid or the sharp angle at the edge of the dashboard and you will damn the designer. The optional Recaro seats are absolutely phenomenal; even giving us the desire to rip them out and use them as desk chairs afterwards. Besides looking really cool, they are soft and comfortable with tons of lumbar support and, with ventilation for both seats in the front, you and your co-pilot never have to worry about sweaty backs or cold butts. In all the 2010 CTS-V is a real player in the mid-size luxury performance sedan market. It has the right power, the right build quality, the right performance, the right size, and the right amount of luxury to easily persuade someone from its German competitors.

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport vs 2013 Lexus GS350 F Sport! - Head 2 Head Ep. 45
The 2013 Lexus GS F Sport has taken down the likes of the BMW 535i, Audi A6 and Infiniti M37 in previous comparisons, and is our reigning king of the luxury performance sedan segment.

Can the light, balanced, and nimble Lexus hold its own against the American powerhouse Cadillac CTS V Sport? On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman takes both cars to the testing grounds, canyon roads, and finally the racetrack to find out.

2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything. However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004 by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea, but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS. Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out. I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from "cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance. The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50 from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS' rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from hidden Exhaust tops to light piped tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect panel gaps and seams. Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops that characterize 528i city driving. While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic found in most of the competition. The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a 4/10ths faster than an E350, a half-second faster than the 528i, a full second faster than a GS350, and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.
