Video: Cadillac CTS-V Challenge

Well Bob Lutz laid down his V-Series Challenge and Cadillac seems to have retained their title of the world’s fastest sport sedan, with a little help from their friends of course. Owners of factory tuned fast four doors were invited to the Monticello Motor Club just outside of New York City and take on the CTS-V in a fast lap competition against the General Motors Vice Chairman, Bob Lutz, as well as a few seasoned racers and friends of GM like Brian Redman, Aaron Link and John Heinricy. Throwing a wrench into Cadillac’s plans was Skip Barber graduate Michael Cooper and his four door BMW M3, although the New York native is no professional, he did manage to finish right behind GM’s trio of road course ringers. Either way Cadillac did prove that the CTS-V can go fast, even with Bob Lutz behind the wheel, and everyone in attendance had more than they can seem to remember. In a time where consumers are more concerned with efficiency than outright lap times, it is nice to see that there are still automaker’s that are giving high performance driving enthusiasts exactly what they are asking for. Even more importantly, it shows that they still know how to have fun.

I agree, the CTS-V is cool. But the way Bob Lutz talked one would have thought the CTS-V was the first son of God.

Cadillac’s sports car is one of the best and one of the fastest sports car in the world. The reason why many car enthusiasts are switching to it.

Why no M5, S6, or Quattroporte? Or CLS55 AMG? or, Panamera for that matter?

So the CTS-V driven by Lutz came behind the M3. Bob Lutz is a loudmouth, as I said. I thought one had to beat his lap time.

For the record though, the FQ400 would destroy all these cars.

Why no IS-F?
