    Ummm, no it won't. It's only slated for about a 50hp and .5L increase from what I've ready to 550ish hp and 5.5L.

    It'll be closer to 550hp, and don't forget this car will make about 550tq.....about 150tq more than the M5 does, and will make peak torque probably about 3000rpms or so sooner.

    Nevermind the fact that Cadillac reliability has surpassed BMW, the CTS-V will be faster, handle better, and have a nicer interior for less money.

    Horrible comparison. :ugh: Spoken like a true sackrider.

    why not, considering how many BMW models used GM parts, like the 5L40E. :mamoru:
