If my math is correct there is about 1200 HP sitting in your drive way

I'm impressed

Hi Big Joe, long time not seen you here!!!!
My V is the best car I`ve ever owned, I love this Cadillac

Here you get the latest numbers from top speed!
I`ve had it several times up to 290 kph (180 mph) when speed limiter shows up and shows on the display "speed is limited to 180 mph".
I`m sure without the "limi" it would see the 300 kph (186 mph) but I can live with the 180.

This car is just GREAT

Sts V In Europe

Last week I picked up my STS V in Antwerp and drove it through Belgium, Luxembourg and in to Germany for a bit of high speed highway testing. It is a phenomenal drive and the supercharger makes it a real joy to drive. I got it up to its terminal velocity of 250 kph a few times. I then continued through Austria and down to its garaged home in Rome.

Hi Big Joe,
well at least we got two really lucky europeans here, Rodinoma and me

He is right, I love the SC sound too especially in the range 120 - 180 mph when transmission shifts down for two gears and gets up on high rpm`s.

BTW my limter comes on at 180 mph (290 kph)@ 6300 rpm`s in 5th gear)

Harry

Mark, congratulations to have you V here in europe!!!!!

Now after 5000 km (about 3000 miles) on the odo I know my car uses no oil. My only Northstar STS had a little oil consumption.

The fuel consumption is OK for the 476 horses, it only uses a little more then my STS but the gas tank could be a little bigger.

Please show some pictures of your V.

Harry
