Default Cadillac CTS-V Top Speed .. per car's computer.

What is the top speed of a stock Cadillac CTS-V ?

The maximum allowed speed before fuel is shutoff is 175 mph by the car's computer.
If the computer detects possible oil starvation, it will limit the top speed to 168 mph.

One has to wonder what the REAL TOP SPEED is, over riding the computer limits ...

I say give it a shot for the max .. you will have the answer in about 15 seconds.

my personal guess at that ? not ...

some of us, in fact, maybe more than a few have exceeded that as a routine, accidentally of course .. ...

Speed are limited because of the tires installed on the vehicles and for other safety reason. Cars with S rated tires like my Deville shut off at 180 kph (112 mph), and my Suburban cuts off at 160 kph,(100 mph)mud and snow tires. Both vehicles are 8 cylinders with in excess of 250 net HP so easily can go much faster. Concours models of the Deville cut off at 210 kph (130 mph)as they come with H rated tires.

CTS-V have to be capable of very close to 200 mph. It is after all pretty much a Corvette with a Cadillac suit.

I'd say the STS is probably 130 mph, SLS is probably 112 mph. Check the standard issue tire size and speed rating. There are hand held reprogramers that can change the speed limiter as well as some chips.

It was nice going back to campus today, kind of makes one wish they were young again. Uof T is my alma matta so Jr. is following my footsteps.

With the power output of the CTSV, stock I would say it would do 180 max. The factory output is what? I belevie 450-505? The z06 with the 7.0 does 197. With the extra weight with the luxury of the caddy, I would say 180 is certainailly feasable. I am not sure if the car would hit a aerodynamic brick wall above that speed, I am none to sure about how aerodynamic it is. With some light bolt ons, 200 would sure be doable.

I have heard 163 - 4.6 60s - limited
I have also heard that the 04s aren't limited...

eBay has a pretty one



item #250166780099 - no reserve - but a 2005 -

I loved the shaved handles and the blacked out tail lights, still brick like - but a sexy brick...
