The 2008 Cadillac CTS is taking the U.S. market by storm leading in sales of redesigned 2008 models. We’ve had the pleasure of getting behind the wheel of the 304 horsepower CTS but we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next-generation CTS-V.
After some time, our friends over at CarMagazine have caught the new CTS-V performing some high-speed testing. Despite wild claims stating that the next Cadillac CTS-V will get a 600 horsepower engine found in the Corvette Z07, sources say that the next generation CTS-V will get the 7.0 liter smallblock all-alloy V8 found under the Corvette Z06″s bonnet.
That will give the next-generation CTS-V the ability to produces 512 horsepower and 407 lb-ft of torque. That engine gives the Corvette Z06 the ability to do 0-62 in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 200mph, so we’re pretty excited to see what it does for the CTS-V. We hope to hear something at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show.
