Post The new CTS V for 2009!!! LSA GMHTP...READ THIS.

New CTS-V for 2009
GMHTP (General Motors High Tech Performance)
May 2008 p.10

Based on the solid new 2009 CTS, the '09 CTS-V takes the already well rounded performance of the first gneration V's and runs with it. The biggest news is 550-plus, as in horses from the supercharged, 6.2L LSA. That's a whopping 150 hp more than the last CTS-V!

Backing the LSA up is the new T56-based TR6060 trans, upgraded to handle the torque increase and shifted via a dual-disc clutch system with a dual-mass flywheel. This setup allows big clamping power with a manageable pedal feel. If you desire an auto trans, the 6L90 six-speed automatic features steering wheel and console-shifter-activated tap up/tap down gear control, as well as driver selectable modes. Performance Algorithm Shifting is part of the 6L90's controller programming and provides a performace-oriented shift pattern during sustained high performance driving. A twin-plate torque converter clutch used w/ the 6L90 transmission to match the torque output of the LSA, the first twin-plate configuration used w/ GM's 300mm torque converter. Like the dual-disc clutch provides exceptional clamping power. However, with asymmetric halfshafts said to combat the dreaded wheelhop, hopefully this means that new CTS V's won't be getting clamped onto flatbeds w/ broken off assemblies.

No punches were pulled in the braking and traction areas. Enormous 15 inch, 6 piston Brembos are mounted up front, while the rear wheels get 14.7 inch four-piston examples. Summer high-performance Michelin PS2 tires were specifically engineered for this application, but the traction tricks don't end there. The V utilizes the Performance Traction Management system, which uses electronics to manage engine torque for optimal traction during acceleration for the best launch or corner exit.

The suspension features Magnetic Ride Control (MRC). This system uses electromagnetically controlled shocks for lightning quick response time and eletronic sensors at all four wheels that make constant adjustments to damping to create nearly instintaneous and precise control over body motions.

Wrap all of that technology in striking, sexy bodywork (raised hood, new front/rear fascias, new grills) and throw in a smashing interior (Recaros, hand-stitched panels, special accents), and it's clear that GM is taking thet luxury performance market seriously. Though it is estimated to tip the scales at 4,200 pounds, a coule hundred more than the old V, this kind of firepower should allow low 12-second quater miles. In other words, the kind of stones needed to whip up on just about any other luxury performer and, in some cases, for half the price.

Exactly. Talk about cleaning up the competition...a la GT500. The Camaro would destroy that!

What interests me is the not only the engine, but the dual disc clutch, the "paddle shifters" for the auto, and the Brembos. Good stuff on this Caddy!!!


I'll go check for the video...thanks!

Nobody knows that...well, except the guys who's building it.

Nothing has been said about the GT500 fighter's engine. This could very well be it. Speculation on my part, of course.

I'm betting

Camaro will have the exact engine tranny setup as the CTS-V.


Tag, I thought this info on the V had already been released... Around the same time as the ZR1 specs were announced?

this is the dumbest thing i've heard in a while... who would pay 100000 for a cts-v when they can get the same power and components in a sexier package for half price...???
