    2005 Cadillac CTS-V - 475HP-500HP LS2

    [​IMG]

    As if the 400-horsepower CTS-V Series isn't enough, we photographed General Motors' Performance Division engineers testing an even higher performance version.

    Referred to as the CTS-V Series Plus by spectators at the Nürburgring, this CTS mule is said to be powered by a 6.0-liter V-8, and sources are estimating the horsepower to be in the 475-500 range. General Motors is aggressively testing this more powerful CTS, but production plans have not yet been confirmed.

    The vehicle shown here is actually an older CTS-V mule, so the hood hump should disappear in production.

    Looks like fender flares may be in store for 2005 as well.

    If only GM could show this kind of enthusiasm with cars that people can actually afford.
