SEE CTS-V TAKE ON M5 AND C63:
Once you get your hands on a supercharged 556-horsepower 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, you know that you need a 500-hp 2008 BMW M5 with which to measure it. It's a matter of practical science.
Of course, there's a sizable price difference between the $59,995 CTS-V and the $86,675 M5, and we don't want to get our comparison results skewed by mere money. Maybe we should add the 507-hp 2009 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG to our science project. Trouble is, this Merc's $86,875 price tag still doesn't put the CTS-V under any pressure.
We had a better idea. We opted for the more nimble 2009 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. This compact sedan cranks out only 451 hp, but it weighs almost 400 pounds less than the E63, and its base price of $58,075 rings up about $2,000 cheaper than the CTS-V.
Is the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V a true benchmark in the super sedan category? Measured against the pure performance of the 2008 BMW M5 and the value of the 2009 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, we knew the truth would come out.
BMW M5 Killer? 2009 Cadillac CTS-V Exclusive
My legs feel somewhat like they did the first time I took Percocet.
This is to say they feel like two 32-inch-long rubber bands — sweaty
ones. My head inside the helmet feels thick and swollen like an
overinflated football. And it's taking me so long to unfasten my helmet
strap that I surely must be wearing winter gloves. I expected to be able to
casually whip the helmet off between the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V that's just
discombobulated my combobutates and the group of GM execs standing about 30
Awkwardly, I arrive still fumbling, sweating and disoriented. So much for
the cool nonchalance I've been striving so hard to cultivate for these many
Oh, also I'm nauseated. This is what happens once you've spent a couple
laps in the passenger seat of the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V while being hurled
around the test track at GM's proving ground in Milford, Michigan.

2010 Ford Mustang Burnouts & More - Exclusive First Drive
SEE THE EXCLUSIVE FIRST DRIVE:
You barely even notice the styling changes to the 2010 Ford Mustang GT until you see it side by
side with last year's car. It's only then that the revised Mustang's shorter grille, smoother
fenders and tucked in rear end become obvious.
Look inside and the cabin is the same story. The overall design is
familiar, but the details have changed. The materials are richer, the panel
fits are tighter and the switchgear feels sturdier.
See it all firsthand and you might be convinced that this is an all-new Mustang, not a mere midcycle
face-lift. Well, that is, until you actually drive it.
