Zero to 60 Run--4.6 Cadillac Northstar V8 vs. 4.9 OHV V8
Zero to 60 comparison between my new 2001 Cadillac Seville SLS with a 4.6 Northstar V8 and the 1991 Cadillac Sedan de Ville with a 4.9 that I've owned since 2005. The Northstar in the Seville is faster, especially at the top end, but the good old 4.9 in the DeVille holds its own--especially for an 18-year-old car with 257,000 miles on it.
Judging from the time codes in the video, the Seville did it in 7 second flat; the DeVille is just over 9 seconds.
Interestingly, both cars shift from 1st to 2nd at 45 MPH, and both hold 2nd gear all the way up to ~80 MPH. Without a tach in the DeVille, I have no idea how high it was revving, but it probably went close to redline.
The noise you hear besides the engine revving in the Seville is raindrops on the windshield. I had the camera on a tripod held down between my legs in the Seville; in the DeVille, it's just handheld, so it's shakier.
Both runs done on Stapleton Rd. just south of Monmouth/Independence, Oregon

For 1992, Cadillac delivered a new, European-flavored Seville with positive
reviews as well as customers. The Seville Touring Sedan was Motor Trend
magazine's Car of the Year for 1992. It also made Car and Driver magazine's
Ten Best list that year.
The 1993 limited edition of the Northstar System, including the Northstar
quad-cam 32-valve aluminum V8 and a new unequal-length control arm rear
suspension to the STS helped the Seville increase sales.
The rear suspension previously featured a single transverse leaf spring
like the Chevrolet Corvette. The wheelbase was back up to 111 in (2,800 mm)
with a 203.9 in (5,180 mm) overall length.
Cadillac made few styling changes during this generation, but switched the
grille from chrome to body color for the 1995 model year.
The Seville was divided into two sub-models:
The Seville Luxury Sedan (SLS) started with the 4.9 L HT-4900 V8 but got a
270 hp (200 kW) LD8 Northstar V8 for 1994
The Seville Touring Sedan (STS) also started with the 4.9 L HT-4900 in
1992 but was upgraded to the 295 hp (220 kW) L37 Northstar in 1993
Pricing on both cars was over US$40,000.
The IIHS rated the 1992-1997 Seville "Poor" in the frontal offset crash
In 1997, the Cadillac Catera took over from the Seville as Cadillac's
