With super charged v10 CTS-V is sure winner here and it proves that 56hp does have an edge and not only that the price remains a special feature of this winner

wow...just as expected the extra 56hp on CTS-V will steal the head to head performance. But of course the BMW have a better a luxurious drive feeling and interior
