Cadillac CTS-V World Challenge Rips Up Detroit GP - /SHAKEDOWN
Leo Parente and ShakeDown visit the Cadillac Racing SCCA World Challenge
team as they take on the Detroit GP. CTS-V did its own work on the Belle Isle track ripping up the world-class competition [not the track, like IndyCar did] winning both WC races. As the event was held in the backyard of GM Headquarters, a few Cadillac engineers / execs [and the Pratt & Miller team] provided us the opportunity to explore exactly how Cadillac bridges the connection between racecar and road car - Technology, Process, and Passion make the trip.
And thanks, Cadillac Racing video team, for the on-board footage.
Audi R8 BLACKBIRD: Basic Car Wash Techniques - /DRIVE CLEAN

Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.

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.
