2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Nürburgring Lap

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.
