2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon Test Drive & Car Review

Cadillac's CTS-V is a musclebound powerhouse of a car, offered in coupe, sedan, and--in our case--wagon form. This is one of those 'Holy Grail' cars for enthusiasts, a car that looks great, sounds like the end of the world, and offers nuclear-level performance while carting its occupants around in a roomy, well-appointed cabin. In short, on paper it looks perfect, especially for a wagon enthusiast like myself. And it looks great in person, too. Our test car's silver coat was offset beautifully by the optional wheels in glossy black, and brake calipers in a shade of yellow that looks like it came off a Lamborghini. The near-exotic feel was capped by the optional suede on the steering wheel and the shift lever. On the road, the CTS-V didn't quite feel the way I was hoping it would. I'd hoped, despite the insanity of the supercharged LS3 (556 hp, 551 lb-ft of torque) that propels the wagon from 0-60 in around 4 seconds flat, that the car would dance a little bit. It doesn't, really...it simply looks for the next available stretch of highway on which it can further stupefy its driver with its ability to melt great distances down to nothing. And that really isn't the car's fault. At Despite its great lap times and well-sorted development, there is simply a limit to what a car of this size, weight (over 4300lb), and power level can do for this amount of money. Starting at around $63,400, the CTS-V wagon offers the performance (and size, and imposing presence) of a $90,000 M5 for the price of an M3. That in itself is an accomplishment that Cadillac can be unabashedly proud of. The fact is that this car is even more unique than the coupe and sedan versions of the CTS-V. It performs nearly as well, just a few ticks behind the lighter bodystyles in both 0-60 and 1/4-mile sprints. But it's a freaking wagon! With 25 cubic feet of cargo room with the seats up, and 68 cubes with the seats folded, it beats out many SUVs, including the BMW X5, the M version of which will just not keep up with this Caddy CTS despite costing a cool $40-50k more. You pay for it at the pump, of course, with mileage in the estimated range of 14 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. But the low entry price relative to anything that comes close performance-wise is well worth it. Vehicle: Cadillac CTS-V Wagon

Roadfly.com - 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Road Test & Review
We finally had a chance to test drive the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The MSRP starts at $63K and even at that price you get a ton of bang for your buck. Not to mention all that horsepower. 0-60 MPH on the CTS-V Coupe is 3.9 seconds. The supercharged V8 produces 556 horsepower. Roadflys review of the CTS-V Coupe confirms that Cadillac is going head to head against the best the Germans have to offer. The Cadillac CTS-V by just about every test beats the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG and BMWs M5.

Roadfly.com - 2011 Mercedes S400 Hybrid Test Drive & Review
Mercedes-Benz, a company whose reputation for innovation has been somewhat overshadowed in recent years, has just staked out a new piece of territory. The 2011 Mercedes S400 hybrid is, in my opinion, the finest hybrid car available, and makes fewer compromises than any alternative-fuel vehicle we've seen to date. Mercedes calls it a "light hybrid." It's the first regular-series production car in the world with a lithium-ion battery, the same kind used in a cell phone or a laptop, and a different animal altogether from the nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries used in pretty much every other hybrid. That allows the battery pack to be so small and compact that is mounted up front, in the engine compartment. Most hybrids mount their batteries in the rear of the car, cramping rear-seat room or trunk space (or both). So, the S400 has a full-size rear seat and a full-size trunk. It's also equipped with a 7-speed automatic, not a CVT like most other hybrids. That makes it feel more like a 'real' car and less like a hybrid. There's truly too much to list about this car, so check out my video and watch for a full article soon! —Ross Rapoport, Road Test Editor and Video Host Visit http://roadflytv.com for more pictures and a downloadable window sticker. Vehicle: 2011 Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid Base Price: $91,000 Price as tested: $102,115 Engine: 3.5L V6, "mild hybrid" (lithium-ion powered electric motor) Transmission: 7-speed automatic horsepower: 295 @ 6,000 rpm Torque: 284 lb.-ft @ 5,000 rpm 0-60 MPH: 7.2 sec.

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon HD Video Review
The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon should not be appealing to most since Americans don't like station wagons, it gets lousy fuel economy and it starts at 63K. One test drive though and you'll be tempted to raid your 401K. Tom Voelk checks out this ultra high performance machine, one that's happy to make Home Depot runs.





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?





The D3 Battle Wagon a 700HP CTS-V Station Wagon
We fell in love with this wagon the first time is set tires in our workshop. On top of it being a wagon, it's a 6 speed manual trans! In the D3 Battle Wagon, even trips to the grocery store are all the more fun with 715 HP and 725 ft-lb's of Torque! The build concept for the D3 Battle Wagon was to completely upgrade all OEM components with the most aggressive bolt on parts possible. The result is an ultra fun, track worthy station wagon! Release: Signal Hill, CA -- June 18th 2011, A 700+ Wheel horsepower CTS-V Station Wagon dubbed "The Battle Wagon" has been completed for delivery to its eagerly awaiting driver. "CTS-V wagons are a still a rarity, on top of that finding a white 6 speed manual was like trying to locate Atlantis!" Says John B. the owner of the Battle Wagon. "The second I heard that Cadillac was going to launch the CTS-V in wagon form I knew it would be my next car, I have always loved wagons, from the E39 5 series to the Audi S4 Wagon now to the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon. With less than 500 miles on the clock the wagon was booked for an appointment at the D3 Motorsport Laboratory which is D3's in house tuning center. The tuning concept of The D3 Battle Wagon is to encompass manageable amounts of horsepower, allowing for a balanced, but track worthy grocery getter. To complete the Wagon the Motorsport Laboratory has broken the build into 3 categories; Performance, Efficiency & Chassis Tuning. A wide range of Performance Tuning Equipment manufactured by D3 has been utilized to upgrade the performance characteristics of the Cadillac CTS-V's LSA power plant. The Pulley System has been upgraded via the D3 Stage 3 Performance Pulley Kit allowing for a mind numbing 17 PSI of Boost out of the factory Eaton 1.9L Blower that has been Blueprinted to D3's specifications. To feed this Boost monster the D3 Air Intake, D3 Billet Throttle Body and D3 Supercharger Lid Spacer have been installed. Exhaust work has been provided by the Kooks Long Tube Headers, Kooks X-Pipe with Race Catalytic Converts and the CORSA touring mufflers. These upgrades have yielded a raw horsepower gain of 244 wheel horse power. To keep the D3 Battle Wagon ready for action all of its cooling has been upgraded via the gamut of D3|ULTRACOOLERS. The ULTRACOOLER systems include the D3 Front Mount Heat Exchanger (Intercooler) the D3 Competition Oil Cooler, and the D3 Competition Radiator. The chassis has been dialed in via the D3 suspension suite including: The D3 Competition Lowering Springs, the D3 Competition Sway Bar Kit, D3 Chassis Bracing, D3 Stainless Steel Brake Lines and Alcon 2pc Competition Rotors. "When everything is said and done, I have a complete competition ready CTS-V, and the best part is that it's a wagon!" for more information on the D3 Cadillac tuning program please visit www.D3Cadillac.com
