I spotted on of these the other day. In red. It was quite the head turner. I didnt even realize this car had made it into production, but its very nice! It sports a 320hp 4.6l DOHC V8.

No actual pictures but this is basically what I saw:

its pretty hot! soo wide.... but I think the painjob is pretty shitty, and yes.. too much $$$ for a Caddy.

XLR. vs SL500.. hmm... Sl hands down

How much does it cost?

And is the 1001HP 16Cylinder Caddy coming into production any time soon?

Yes yes ..

Why $120,000 for a GM ? :rofl: :rofl:

don't get me wrong .. it is a nice car .. and still $5,000 less then a super nice BMW 645 Ci Cab, and $20,000 less then a Benz SL500 ..

but . what is the point ? :dunno:

Even a "Timex" watch with the newest technology .. and with 14K gold on it ... it will be a nice watch .... but .. it will still be a Timex.

I am sure mnay retired men/women will buy it as a 75 yr old birthday gift ! :rofl:

Ditch the junk Northstar and drop in the LS6. What was GM thinking:thumbsdow Corvette chassis but they put the pussy Northstar in it. Could you imagine pulling up next to to one of those and hearing the lumpiness and blower whine of a Davenport stroker LS6.


The CTS-V gets my :thumbsup: That's a Cadillac I would drive.:bigpimp: :eek:

It's a nice car but GM really made it for rich old capitalists who would rather die then buy import... lol the last thing we need it a bunch of senile old men driving around 320 horses... oh well, i like the style... cadillacs also got that crazy cien or whatever super car coming out i think!

112k.. i have real pictures of it from the dealership. we were there getting a oil change for my dads caddy when we spotted it. it is a beauty! if it didnt cost 112 i bet you would see alot more of them on the road. they are extremely quick saw 3 on the street already.

Truth ! they are nice car ..but .$112 base, plus fee, options, tax... that is a lots of a GM ! even a Lexus SC430, is too expensive for $90,000 .. but then $90K .. is more reasonable then $120K .. and at least.. a Toyota .. that is why .. we see a SC430 everywhere .. if Toyota set that SC430 to $120K .. I am sure . we won't see one on the street !

However, it is GM .. will see .. in 1 or 2 yrs .. may like other Cad, offer $10,000 or even $20,000 cash rebate .. :(
