I’m back!

January 24, 2008

Sorry its been awhile.  Work has been killer, been doing my and my co-workers job while she was out on maturity leave.

I am sure alot has happened in the GM world, so we will assume you have read that and I will move on.

Lets see.

The CTS-V is a a nice car.  Its a Corvette with 4 doors.  I want one, but I am in Texas and by law you must own a truck.  But it looks like GM pulled a fast one and release some photos of a 95% done CS Coupe…and wow…the pics speak for themselves.

Now for the specs:

  • Classic hardtop styling, with no B-pillar
  • CTS production windshield laid at a faster angle to create a sleeker profile
  • Chrome, split seven-spoke wheel design; 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels
  • Sculpted lower front fascia with unique brake-cooling vents
  • Slim-profile outside mirrors
  • XLR-type hidden door handles with proximity remote opening
  • Unique front fender vents
  • Diamond-cut rear fascia with mesh lower grilles and center-outlet exhaust
  • Taillamps with a subtle fin profile and are highlighted with LED lighting technology with light pipes
  • Rear spoiler integrated into the center high-mounted stop lamp
  • Sculpted roof-mounted antenna for OnStar, XM Satellite Radio, etc.
  • A classic 2+2 interior environment
  • 3.6L V-6 engines, including the 304-horsepower (227 kW) Direct Injection power plant
  • The Coupe Concept also is designed for a new 2.9L turbo-diesel being developed for international markets. This new engine, tailored for use in the CTS, will deliver an estimated 250 horsepower (184 kW) and 406 lb.-ft. of torque (550 Nm).
  • A six-speed manual transmission backs the engine,
  • sport-tuned suspension
  • 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels

A little disappointed in no V8 Option but it is one sexy car.

Well enjoy the pics, and I will be at the Houston Auto Show and will have pics up soon!

V6 Base $27,595

V8 GT Base $29,995.  Yep a V8 sedan basically imported from Down Under for under 30K!

And with $2,400 bucks separating the two,  we should see more people ponying up to buy the GT.
