2009 CTS-V, Now with moving pictures and sound!!

We've all been dying to hear this new engine to speculate some more I am sure. Here's the link!

2009 CTS-V ring video!

I'm still saying 6.2L SC LS9!!

Quote:
First revealed on 60 Minutes months ago, the 2008 Cadillac CTS has been one of the most photographed prototypes of the year. In our latest spy video, we catch the first shots of its high-powered brother, the 2008 Cadillac CTS-V.

Caught recently on the Nürburgring test track, as well as various surface streets around the famous German facility, this Cadillac CTS V-Series was outfitted with all the usual equipment found on these high-performance variants of standard Cadillac models.

Up front there's a deeper, more aggressive airdam along with a signature mesh grille. Closer inspection of the photos also shows an upgraded set of wheels and tires although it's not clear whether these are production spec or not. Heavy-duty brake hardware is also evident as are some slight alterations to the lower bodywork.

The most telling sign of this car's enhanced performance was the sound it made as it circled the test track. Like the previous CTS-V, the next-generation model will use V8 power and a manual transmission. And like the original CTS-V, we suspect it will borrow its V8 from Chevrolet's Z06 Corvette. With 500 horsepower and a six-speed transmission, the 2008 CTS-V would be a good match for European competitors like the Audi RS6, BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.

Production of the standard Cadillac CTS begins next summer, so expect to see the 2008 Cadillac CTS-V on sale by the end of next year.
