Spy Shots: 2009 Cadillac CTS-V to get 500 horsepower

While the new 2008 Cadillac CTS is set to hit dealerships later this summer, its evil twin, the 2009 CTS-V, is undergoing some hardcore testing. Sources say that the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V will get an LSA engine which is a new V8 supercharged block that produces 500 horsepower.

Known by its code name “GMX322 V S/C,” the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V will begun production in late 2008 with prices expected to be around the $55,000 range. The 500 horsepower should allow the Cadillac CTS-V to compete strongly with rival BMW M5 which currently gets 500 horsepower as well.
