Cadillac CTS-VThe Cadillac communications group invited a group of media to General Motors’ Milford Proving Ground to give them a special preview of the brand new second-generation Cadillac CTS-V. The first glimpse we all got of the CTS-V was last January during the Detroit Auto Show.

A few weeks back, GM’s resident speed demon engineer John Heinricy took a production spec CTS-V to an all-time lap record of 7:59.32 for a production sedan at the Nürburgring, and this week Cadillac revealed the official SAE certified power numbers for the super-Caddie at 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque.

The CTS-V is GM’s way of competing with all those German uber-sedans like the Mercedes E63 AMG, Audi RS4 and RS6 and the BMW M5.
