Nice car, had a small bump on power compared to ATS and CTS-V, which is good. Probably s little bit lighter, and similar dynamics.

Well done, Cadillac.

If I'm honest, I like the looks of the last gen CTS-V better, with the slotted hood and more aggressive styling. The tech on these are really great though.

I really love these things. The rear-end is a little wonky at best, but these things seem like a hell of a vehicle.

Like you, in 5 years time I would be extremely tempted to try and get one, but a lot can change in 5 years..

Actually these will be track monsters. They turn very fast. I still favor the GEN3 CTS-V, particularly the Carbon Black edition. The new Blackwing is a little too subtle, I like the I'm going to kick your ass version.

They sure look good! What's the curb weight though?

if you spring for the upgraded brakes you can save 50lbs.

I donít get why they do not use an upgraded version of the LT1 on the CT4. They could bring close to 500hp with a new manifold, and make a really good track car, without the heat issues that the twin turbo (and all the extra cooling) may face.

Not sure how the weight compares to BMW

Even though you can't get one with a manual transmission, (or get one at all) I think I'd rather have the Lexus of Lexuses.

Really nice car, beautiful and exclusive and the sound... but I would go with Cadillac, as it would be a better GT car.

Completely different class of car, not to mention you can get 4 of the CT5-V Blackwings for the price of the LFA when it was new.

I've seen on LFA in person. Great looking and sounding car. i was given an opportunity to drive it and I turned it down. I can't be responsible for a car that cost more than my house.
