I wasn't impressed with the curb weights of them, but I guess thats the price you pay for luxury.

Thats almost 2x the weight of my car, but even so it's still probably quicker.

I actually looked them up earlier today after watching the vids in another thread. I sat inside a CTS-V before and had to get out of it before I blew a load all over it.

It's about time GM gets back to interesting cars that have personality rather than having 5 different cars that look more like just different models of the same one. Too bad they're going under.
