Ctsv-r

Just kinda curious...

If you look at a pic of the ctsv-r you will see that the front of the car has been skimmed down (vertically). I was wondering if that could be done to a regular cts/v without spending a ton of money. What do u think?

Red face Cts-vr

I doubt itÖ

The body on the CTSV-R has a lot carbon fiber and is completely rebuilt.

But for the right amount of money Iím sure it can be done, but not cheaply.

Also I was just in the bookstore and thereís an article in one of the auto magazines comparing he CTS-V to the R.

Obviously thereís no comparison but itís pretty interesting.

What magazine had this comparison? I would love to read it! I really enjoy watching the CTS-V R make it's way around the track. It's an amazing machine.

It's Motor Trend. There was a video on MT related to this even, but couldn't find it again. Saw it last week.

I flipped through this issue at the local news stand. Very good write up.
