Cadillac’s CTS-V Coupe Makes German Rivals Look Like Taxis

The Wall Street Journal has an entertaining review of the new Cadillac CTS-V that exclaims that the Caddy is better than its German competition.

The CTS-V is more fun to drive than the M3 or the RS 5. Importantly, I’m not saying it’s a finer, more advanced performance machine, even though the Caddy – bigger and heavier – is quicker around the Nurburgring than those two cars, and anyone who says American cars don’t handle is a pathetic hater. I’ve driven lots of performance automobiles, from Alfa 8C Competiziones to Zondas, and I can assure you, the CTS-V – with the big racy rubber, the magnetic dampers, the limited-slip diff, the Brembo land anchors, the gut-bucket torque – gets around corners wonderfully.

Nice! I’d love to drive one and see for myself.
