When you launch a campaign called “May the Best Car Win” you better be ready to face some heat from others who think that they can beat your car; however, General Motors’ Bob Lutz doesn’t seem to be bothered by the challenge. During a conference call with journalists last week, Lutz challenged anyone to find a “stock production sedan on the planet that could outperform the CTS-V on the track.”
Why is Lutz getting so serious? “As I said in the previous chat, we”re going to take away every last excuse people have not to consider our products,” Lutz said. “We know that some consumers still think Cadillac cars do not have the top-end performance they believe the German luxury cars have. The development objective of the 556-hp Cadillac CTS- V was to create the world”s best high-performance sedan.”
“I proposed a track duel, “run what ya brung,” at a time and place to be determined,” said Lutz.”
Well the time and place have been determined and if you feel like you have what it takes you can apply over at the CTS-V Challenge website. The event will be held on Oct. 29 at the Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, N.Y., 90-miles the New York City area. Of course, if you want to participate, the cost of getting yourself and your car there is up to you.
