Cadillac Racing with CTS-V Coupe testing at Sebring
Cadillac is turning their attention to racing as the company has just wrapped up testing of the new CTS-V Racing Coupe.
Set to enter competition on Saturday, at the Streets of St. Petersburg, the CTS will battle other contenders in the highly-competitive Sports Car Club of America World Challenge GT series. It will be driven by Johnny O'Connell and Andy Pilgrim, who are no strangers to racing as O'Connell is a three-time GT1 champion in the America Le Mans Series and Pilgrim claimed victory in the 2005 SCCA World Challenge GT class.
As for the car itself, it features an aerodynamic carbon fiber body and a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 535 hp (399 kW / 542 PS). While this is 21 hp (16 kW / 21 PS) less than the standard CTS-V Coupe, the car weighs 1,000 pounds (454 kg) less than the production model.
According to O'Connell, "The CTS-V Coupe racecar has been very nimble during testing and seems to brake very well. I not only expect it to do well on a street circuit, but everywhere we compete."

2012 Audi A6 promo
Essentially a sedan version of the A7 Sportback, the redesigned A6 has a
conservative design that features LED taillights, an integrated trunk-lid
spoiler, a dual Exhaust system, and
optional LED headlights. If that isn't expressive enough, the optional
S-Line package adds modified bumpers, a sport suspension, a faux rear
diffuser, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the cabin offers additional interior room as the car's wheelbase
has been stretched to measure 2910mm long. While that is certainly nice,
we're rather impressed by the cockpit's fashionable styling and high-tech
goodies such as a 1,300-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system and MMI navigation
plus with internet connectivity.
Under the hood, five different engines will be available at launch. The
most efficient is a 2.0 TDI which has an average fuel consumption rating of
4.9 L/100 km (48.00 US mpg) and C02 emissions of 129 g/km. It produces 130
kW (177 PS) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, which allows the car to
accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and top out at 228 km/h (142
On the other hand, the new 3.0 TDI V6 produces 150 kW (204 PS) and 400 Nm
(295 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to dash from 0-100 km/h in 7.2
seconds, before topping out at 240 km/h (149 mph). With this particular
engine, expect an average fuel consumption of 5.2 L/100 km and CO2
emissions of 137 g/km.
Moving further up, a second version of the 3.0 TDI churns out 180 kW (245
PS) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. It lets the A6 sprint from 0-100 km/h
in 6.1 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The average fuel consumption registers 6.0 L/100km and CO2 emissions are
On the petrol side, there's a naturally-aspirated 2.8 FSI V6 with 150 kW
(204 PS) and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque. Paired to a multitronic
transmission, the engine allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in
7.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph). It consumes 7.4
L/100 km (31.79 US mpg) and emits 172 grams of CO2 per km.
Lastly, the 3.0 TFSI V6 cranks out 220 kW (300 PS) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft)
of torque. This enables the car to run from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and
hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). In terms of
efficiency, expect 8.2 L/100 km (26.68 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 190
If those options haven't tickled your fancy, Audi will eventually launch a
hybrid variant that uses a 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) 2.0 TFSI petrol engine
and a 33 kW (45 PS / 44 hp) electric motor. Boasting a combined output of
180 kW (245 PS / 241 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque, the car
accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and hits a top speed of 238 km/h
(148 mph). Owing to its mediocre performance, the car is expected to have
an average fuel consumption of 6.2 L/100 km (38 US mpg) and CO2 emissions
of 142 g/km.

Compliments - New Mercedes TV spot with Nico Rosberg, Michael Schumacher and Mika Häkkinen
Mercedes-Benz is kicking off the 2011 Formula 1 season with a new Silver
Arrow and also with a new TV spot. Based around the motto "Racing is a
state of mind", the short film entitled "Compliments" depicts the passion
of Mercedes-Benz for motorsport and competition. With a touch of humour and
self-deprecation, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher play on their
internal rivalry within MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team. Former world champion
Mika Häkkinen -- an iconic figure who has appeared numerous times in
humorous Mercedes-Benz TV spots over the past 15 years -- highlights, with
the aid of an energy drink, on which team the rivalry should be focused at
the start of the season.
"The new Formula 1 season gets under way on Sunday with the race in
Melbourne, and the deck has been shuffled again," explained Anders Sundt
Jensen, Vice President Brand Communication Mercedes-Benz Cars. "The spot
makes it clear, in a rather fun way, that motorsport is a way of life for
our brand. In addition, it shows that we don't admit defeat if at first we
don't achieve the goals we have set ourselves, but rather that we take up
the challenge -- both within our team, as well as united against our
The 45-second spot, created by Jung von Matt, will be shown by all major
German broadcasters from tonight until Sunday to mark the start of the
Formula 1 season.

Jeff's Twin Turbo CTS-V
Well, finally after two years of fabrication, Jeff got his CTS-V back. You
may remember it from my CTS-V Cat Pop vid (check my other vids if you
missed it) before it got the turbos
installed. So now it's back, and it didn't take long for Jeff to 'take care
of it'. Enjoy!

Cadillac CTS-V Race Car Ride-Along at Road America
Consumer Guide got the chance to ride along with a professional driver in
the Cadillac CTS-V race car that is used in World Challenge races.
The first minute of the video is the car from the outside. After that, the
real action begins. Apologies for the poor sound quality of the in-car
video. It was so loud that it overwhelmed the microphone!
