When will the horsepower war end?
Perhaps the better question is how much horsepower, is too much horsepower?
I don’t know about you but for me I would answer those questions as follows…
Hopefully the horsepower war will not end, each and every generation has brought more power that I see as a good thing.
As far as too much horsepower, is it really possible to have too much horsepower, I think not.
Cadillac has set sights on the BMW M5, Audi S6 and Mercedes-Benz E63 in their quest to own the crown, if only for a season in the super sedan segment.
Yeah, I know that the CTS-V is priced closer to the M3, C63 and IS-f than the bigger sedans, but in terms of size, the Cadillac is better compared to the larger offerings from the Germans.
And saving a ton of money in the process just serves as further incentive to choose the Cadillac.
But is it enough? Has Cadillac produced a car capable of running with the best from Germany?
More importantly, we know the CTS-V is capable of running with the big boys, but are you willing to give it a chance and consider purchasing the Cadillac over the more expensive Germans?
I’ll be perfectly honest with you; I am rooting for the CTS-V. It would be nice to have the hometown team win a contest or two.
Perhaps with all the economic news that inundates us daily as the stock market swings up and down, we could call the Cadillac the Recession Busting Super Car. If cash is king, the CTS-V sure does leave a lot of it in your pocket when cross-shopped against the M5, S6 and E63.
So tell us if you think Cadillac has what it takes to run with the Germans, and while you are making your arguments be sure to tell us which car would get your hard earned dollars.
