Default CTS in trouble... THOSE DORN GERMANS

ok guys. Im here watching the news watching bloomberg whine and complain about the NYC Congestion Pricing Plan (F that) and I see a commercial for the Mercedez Benz C63. Okay... Lexus and its ISF... and not MERCEDEZ DUGEN BENZ has a 451 HP C63 AMG. Has the CTS been trumped. Mercedez supposedly has the most performance andnimble handling. CTS is heavy and the one i drove was kind of sluggish on repsonse. Whats your thoughts on it..

P.S. neone know when the CIEN going to be in production

They are comapring apples and oranges, and you may have driven the wrong CTS ?

MB @ 451hp vs CTS-V @ 550hp

Does that answer it?

(Drooling and bowing) I am not worthhhhy.. omg i thought it was rumored... more powerful then the corvette. Has GM gone mad. Also the STS-V... Are they going to give it 600HP. THe STS has to outperform the CTS.

The MB:
The 90-degree DOHC V8 engine in question displaces 6.2 liters or 379 cubic inches. It has an 11.3:1 compression ratio and variable valve timing. It delivers its 451-hp peak at 6,800 rpm out of a possible 7,200. Torque builds from the basement to a 443 pound-feet peak at 5,000 rpm.


so ...

MB @ 443 ft-lbs torque
CTS-V @ 550 ft-lbs torque



yes, the Corvette guys are in a cold sweat!

NO, GM is not gone crazy - GM has awaken from the 25 year nap.



Advice:
Do NOT open the door and sit in a STS-V, not even in the show room UNLESS you are ready to dish out the cash and take it with you. Worst thing I did. Now and then, I wake up feeling the rumble of that STS-V. Its beyond description.
