    Drag Race: CTS-V vs. 970 Turbo vs. X6 M

    I'm liking the results, though not very surprising....

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Drag Race: CTS-V vs. 970 Turbo vs. X6 M

     I actually expected the Cadillac to be faster but otherwise, no surprises here, indeed.

    I reckon that the Cadillac is much hindered by its maual transmission and subsequent lack of LC.

    The CTS-V is a beast but it's still American. You're right some traction is definitely lost but it's a sweet muscle wagon

    Re: Drag Race: CTS-V vs. 970 Turbo vs. X6 M

    The "American" CTS-V costs less than half of the Turbo and $30k less than the X6M, but will beat them both from a roll race 60-130mph where it really counts.  The trap speed tells you who will win the roll race.  Also has the same nice amenities on the interior and rides just as nice as the other two.


    Re: Drag Race: CTS-V vs. 970 Turbo vs. X6 M

    The roll race from 60 to 130 mph counts? Where? On the drag strip?  

    Also don't forget that the X6 M is a SUV and pretty heavy too.

    Regarding the Panamera Turbo: No, even from 60-130 mph, the CTS-V does not beat the Panamera Turbo.

    According to german reviews, the Panamera Turbo does 0-125 mph in 13.6 seconds, while the CTS-V needs almost two seconds more. 

    Performance of the CTS-V is still impressive though.

     CTS_Vs performance was hindered by bad driver, was expecting it to be better too. 


    Re: Drag Race: CTS-V vs. 970 Turbo vs. X6 M

    It is unfortunate for the Cadillac brand, but the CTS_V and bad drivers seem to have an attraction to each other.

    So all CTS-V tested in various car magazines had bad drivers? Smiley Smiley

    Re: Drag Race: CTS-V vs. 970 Turbo vs. X6 M

    Sorry RC, I should have been more clear. I was thinking of the CTS-V's that I have come across on the road. Therefore, a bad driver for the test seemed entirely appropriate.

    Still a poor generalization on my part; apologies to CTS-V owners. You don't let your kids borrow the car do you?
