Cadillac CTS-V CSR2, tune and shift pattern

The Cadillac CTS-V is the CSR2 Prestige Cup car of the 91 season and there are two versions of the CTS-V, the normal 5-star version and the 5-purple star version. Nevertheless i personally prefer the BMW M5 if it comes to family cars 🙂

CTS-V specifications

The real Cadillac

You can order the CTS-V since October 2015 that was formally presented at the NAIAS of the same year. Starting in spring 2016, it will also be delivered to customers in Germany. The car is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine with supercharger and a maximum torque of 855 Nm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is 3.7 s and the top speed is 320 km/h. After all not a bad car, but I personally prefer perfect ingenious European cars over the US heavy metal. All in all, a matter of taste

In the film Matrix Reloaded, the main characters Morpheus, Trinity and the Keymaker are using a silver Cadillac CTS during a chase. At the end of the chase, however, the CTS is just scrap metal. Almost the same fate a CTS suffered “on a test drive” in the movie Bad Boys II, there it stands demolished and shot to pieces in the counter hall of a bank. Without a doubt, a pattern can be seen.
