The powerful 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe laps the Nürburgring as if it was born to be there. The CTS-V handles surprisingly well despite its weight, but a gentle powerslide can quickly turn into a horrible accident. Driving the CTS-V Coupe is certainly a thrilling experience, especially on the Green Hell. One of the fastest American cars on the market today is also one of the most fun.
I make a few mistakes in this lap, but I think it illustrates how fine the line between control and chaos is in this car. No damage, but certainly some close calls. The idea wasn't a flawless lap, but rather a fun and exciting one. I think the CTS-V coupe did a good job of accomplishing that.
2010 Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart - Test Track Run
The brand new 2010 Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart takes a lap around the
Sidewinder handling test track. With 0.90 lateral g's, the Colt Ralliart
grips decently, but is plagued by terrible body roll. 145 horspeower gives
this mini Evo some grunt, especially with a curb weight of only 2337 lbs.
To be completely honest, the Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart isn't terrible fun to
drive, thanks to truly epic amounts of body roll. Give this little car some
ARBs and stiffer shocks and it should feel a whole lot better.

2011 Mazda 2 Laguna Seca Lap - Forza 3
The fun-injected 2011 Mazda 2 takes a quick lap around Mazda Laguna Seca
Raceway. The Mazda 2 may only have 102 horsepower, but a curb
weight of only 2,116 lbs makes this one nimble hot hatch. The Mazda 2 takes
every corner with a smile on its face (literally), all the while looking
cute as can be.

Driving the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe at Monticello Motor Club
High Gear Media editor John Voelcker takes the CTS-V Coupe around the
Monticello Motor Club track. Action starts at 2:06, but we left the rest of
it in so you get to experience the waiting part too.
Voelcker notes, "This was my first time ever driving at Monticello, so I
wasn't particularly pushing it on this fairly technical track. And you'll
note I hit the rev limiter a couple of times. But the best thing about
driving the CTS-V is how planted it felt under any circumstance. And the
sound too, of course."

2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Nürburgring Lap
The Mercedes-Benz C63 is a true autobahn animal. The sound this car makes
is amazing, and something you could listen to all day. This 451 horsepower RWD monster is
quite tail happy , which is to be expected. It's a thrill to drive if you
can control the oversteer and keep out of the wall.
Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Nürburgring Lap
The Mercedes-Benz CL 65 AMG is a luxury cruiser for Germany's autobahn. But
don't let this luxury car and it's 4938 lb curb weight fool you. This
monster has a 604 horspeower V12 that propels it to 60 mph in only 3.8
seconds. If you have enough space, it will eventually reach 214 mph. The
CL65 AMG goes crazy fast, but is smooth and easy to drive, even when you're
pushing the limits.
