2006 CTS-V review

"The first V-Series vehicle, the CTS-V provides high-performance driving enthusiasts with a serious, credible alternative to imports in the highly competitive, low-volume luxury performance segment, including the BMW M-Series, Mercedes-Benz AMG Series and Audi S-Series."

This is part of a new review on the 2006 CTS-V that has been featured on TopSpeed. It talks about performance, design, models, and test-drive impressions.

Also there is a quite big gallery of pictures, high-resolution too

Here's the rest: http://www.topspeed.com/cars/cadilla...-v-ar1393.html

That article is full of mistakes... here is a very easily noticed one:

Quote:
Outside, the CTS-V boasts a wire-mesh front grille that allows its intercooled supercharger to suck in as much air as possible in a pretty narrow car for its power; the mesh also lending a more muscular air than the front-end of its normally-aspirated cousin, the CTS. Otherwise, the exterior is pretty near indistinguishable from the standard model, apart from the low-profile V-flag badge details that grace the sides.
ehm, supercharger??
