This beast is the forerunner for the maximum General Motors Performance Division Caddy, the CTS Super V. Available direct from GM for about $65,000, Super V features a 600-hp engine, carbon fiber hood and fenders, and that scoop for getting more cooling air in and around the engine bay.

Once GM engineers get done running the Nürburgring, they’ll get down to the business of building just 500 limited-edition Super Vs.

Guess the R/M/AMG brigade have to start worrying, the CTS-V has already lapped the Ring faster than the E39-M5, so there isn't much doubt as to what this car is capable of.

Now thats one very very mean car.

P-head could you provide some links where i could get more info on the car.. Would love to see members at RS6.com and M5board.com weep when i post this news there.

Strange, but i don't think the 3 motorsport departments ever expected competition... and that from a GM Division.

hey guys, i couldn't really find any more specs on the car. but it seems to have a 6.0 litre V8. uses a larger displacement pushrod type small block engine, so the hood scoop will probably disappear.

well, sort of. the one in the movie was the CTS. this is the CTS-V Super. which means it has been tuned by the GM Performance Division.
