This is very interesting. Btw: any idea how much this HP Edition might cost?

Corvette GS is about 54k to start
Caddy CTS-V is about 62k to start

HP Edition can't start anywhere higher than an entry level Corvette GS... or could it?

Maybe it will look better in person? I don't know though. I like the look of the SS hood infinitely better.

In any case, if you are sitting behind the wheel of a 556+ HP Camaro, the view is going to be pretty cool!
Don't you mean function over form?

Same thing, he just worded it different.

I kind of agree with his assessment of the CTS hood. From a design perspective, I'm not so sure. It's different, I'll give it that.

Not buying the comparison.

I'm still seeing a TF2 like air intake under the hood covers ...

Besides, I hope it won't be CTS V like .... cause that caddy hood is fugly!

If I remember correctly, on AUTOBLOG we got to see the CTS-V race car with mags belonging to the SSX. Very nice post!!! I can smell the Z in my parking lot.

Damnit GM why are you making me wait LONGER!? OH wait . . if youre "widening" the fenders and quarter panels for a wider more aggresive stance to cover all that rubber you're mounting on it. . . I s'pose I'm ok with it.

Mags... as in wheels? I have'nt heard that since middle school!

I love the hood on the CTS-V race car. And I really dont care what wheels come on the "Z" or "HP Edition"(stupid, genaric sounding name) because that is usually the first thing that gets changed along with bad choice of tires that usually come on cars from the factory.

That hood would look particularly great on an HPE (that's for you, fbodfather!) CONVERTIBLE!

Looks like testing just began at Sebring during the last week in preparation for the 1st event at the end of March.
Some great pics in this gallery:

Man - I'm just not a fan of that hood. I've seen some better looking aftermarket options that do better on form and function.

Okay, its beautiful. But this 'muscle' look is part of the reason GM can't sell any cars to compete with Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and soon the new VW Phaeton.

Cadillac should stick with the successful new and refined look. This return to the 'american muscle' roots is not going to catch on.

I would have bought a CTS over my car hands down.
