2010 Cadillac CTS-V

So im driving home the other day from work and in my rearview mirror i see this V trying to get to me through traffic. Next light turns red and he pulls up so i say what the hell we will see how much i can hang. Turn the T/C off and he looks at me like he is king dingaling becuase he paid $75000ish for 556 HP. We go at the light and i immediately jump a car as he spins. Then second gear standing on the gas i pull another car. Then we hit third and im thinking when is he going to learn how to drive his car and pass me. Look in the rearview and he was fading back. Gave up and probably took the car back to Cadillac and complained and probably got told learn how to drive your car.

Maybe all he was trying to do was get a look at your car. You initiated the 'race'. Don't know how you could conclude either of these:

Actually he initiated the race but ok. All i wanted to do was see how fast that car was and how i held with him if at all. I wasnt saying thats what he did but it was definately how he looked at me like i was driving a little honda civic and his pissed look afterward.

cts-v is a baaad car, was it the coupe or the 4 door? cuz I'm sure a goat with mods can outrun a 4 door no problem, however the coupe is a monster of a car.

It was a 4 door and my 05 is bone stock. He spun a little off the line and into second and i had about the best launch and shifts ive ever had but still thought it was a huge adrenaline rush to beat a car of that caliber. regardless if the win came from possibly driver error on his part. thats one of the reasons i love racing. testing your own driving skills

There is hardly a weight difference between the two. Performance is the same, way faster than a stock GTO.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

He didn't pay for only 556hp. Check out Caddy's website and see what all he got. Turn one on the N-ring you would end up in the weeds while the Caddy will be turing and buring with ass warmers, surround sound while ripping music to his hard drive. I hardly think he is worried about beating you

I'm sure it didn't ruin his day but he didn't look too happy when all was said and done. And yes i know how amazing the car is. My father in law has a 2011 2 door. Yes i have driven it and it is a sweet sweet fully loaded machine. I'm positive someone that drives the same car to it's potential would have killed me. I was more impressed with my driving than his lack of driving.

On top of everything this was only my second real race since owning the GTO. The only other race i had was a G8 GT and that one didn't hardly get into third gear either.

Someone who could drive it to 80% of it's potential would have handed your ass to you. You do, however, realize that you're on the street.....?
