CTS Super V

From Autoweek.com:

Though wed hardly consider the Cadillac CTS V-Series ordinary, it’s clear this version is well beyond that performance CTS.

We last encountered the CTS Super V in testing at the Nürburgring (“Spied: Super V!, May 31, 2004), but this one—spotted recently by an alert spy shooter—appears much closer to production-ready. We’re told it’s the 2007 CTS Super V, and that it is powered by a 7.0-liter 505-hp LS7 V8 lifted directly from the Corvette Z06.

The Super V also features custom bodywork, huge rear tires, larger exhaust pipes and an engine sound unlike any other CTS.

With the new CTS slated for arrival as a 2008 model, speculation is that Cadillac will offer this exclusive model as a last hurrah for the exiting first-generation CTS.

If that’s not powerful enough, wait for the next-generation CTS Super V, which is rumored to be equipped with the LS9 engine—a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 600 hp. But you’ll be waiting at least until the 2010 or 2011 model year for that one.

 Yes, this certainly looks production ready. I have heard rumours of such a car for some time now. Maybe it will finally happen.

 I wonder what the production will be. Probably lower than the 5000 units allocated for the CTS-v now. Those engines are all hand built and very low production.
