2011 Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V - Jay Leno's Garage
Jay Leno's Garage
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
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.
Cadillac CTS-V Exhaust Comparison: Magnaflow VS. Magnaflow and Kooks Headers
Before and After Video of Magnaflow Catback Exhaust with and without Kooks 1 3/4" headers
and high flow cats on a CTS-V. Car is louder overall, as well as deeper and
raspier with the headers on. V also has K&N CAI and various other mods not
relevant to the Exhaust note.
NOTES: Car in backround is 2003 Terminator Cobra. Car is smoking at
beginning of second video because the car was warmed up (it was cold out,
and didn't want to rev the engine cold).

2009 CTS-V stock exhaust vs. Corsa axleback exhaust
I strongly advise using earphones for this video for best audio output.
I compare the stock mufflers with the Corsa axleback Exhaust in my 2009 CTS-V (automatic) at
Revs at rest
Acceleration on the freeway
Ambient noise at freeway speed
The primary changes with the Corsa are loss of drone at low rpms, and
louder, deeper Exhaust tone at WOT.
