    Spy Shooting: Boosted Caddy STS-V spotted at Nürburgring

    All Cadillac STS-V photos by John Johnson.

    We’ve driven Cadillac’s CTS-V, and we’ve seen photos of even higher-performance CTS models circling Germany’s Nürburgring. But here is a Cadillac that goes a step further: STS-V, due in summer 2005, about a year after the 2005 STS debuts this summer.

    Little is known about Caddy’s forthcoming luxo-rocket built on the all-new flagship sedan’s rear-drive chassis, but unlike the Corvette-engined CTS-V, this V model stays true to the wreath-and-crest powertrain by running a supercharged Northstar V8 producing 400-plus hp (vs. 320 hp in the normally aspirated version).

    Hopefully the exhaust will fit better on the production car.

    It would be better if it had a supercharged vette engine. 400hp is not enough.

    Nice...

    I wonder why the blown Northstar though, why give the larger car a smaller engine? CTS-V and STS-V are going to be an interesting comparison.

    Next project, redesigned Deville-V to compete with the Benz S55. :x: :big grin:
