Ran a CTS-V

I was on my way back from a trip to FT Lauderdale, and was running 27 through the center of Fl. I had plenty of time and didn't feel like hitting the Turnpike. Just north of Sebring I ended up at a light beside this white CTS-V. The guy looked over but didn't realize what he was beside. When the light turned green I stepped down a bit and started to pull on him. He real quick gets into it so I did too. We stayed with me about 2 cars ahead through the rest of first and part of second till the next light.
I watched the light close and got an ok launch, but he knew his car and hooked hard and launched great. He pulled about 1 and a half car lengths on me and held that through first. 2nd I started to close a little and by the top of second we were almost even. at about 100 I had him by almost a car length, and the aerodynamics started to take it's toll on him. By 120 I had 3+ cars on him and was starting to pull hard. We quit there.
I only had 1100 (1250 now) miles on it. I think once this thing is broken in, it's going to scream.
Oh well I'm 1for 1 and it was against a respectable contender.

Cadillac doesn't make a white CTS-V.....it's either another car, or a custom job???

In southern Florida that white appearance may have been due to large quantities of unsnorted blow that somehow wound up sticking to the car.

Now this is what I'm talking about. Nice kill. You went up against a nice car with a real close motor. (or the same one?)

But now was it a "V"?

It was white, I thought I had never seen a V in white. The front and rear fascia's looked like a V. It had the mesh grille and the big front opening below the grille and the lower rear fascia with the duals and it had the same wheels as a V. Definately had a V8 from the sound. had the V8 badge on the fender. I'm looking at it on the Cadillac website, and if it wasn't a V someone spent a lot of effort to make it look like one. I'm not sure if this is possible, but could someone have ordered it special, since they do make a CTS in white? The platinum color is more silver than white.
God I hope it was a V or this thing is a lot slower than it feels. LOL.
Oh well we change it to a CTS. I now need to go hunting a V. Then we'll know for certain. Everybody take back the congrats on a good kill.

If it was the CTS-V, it should have been a closer race with either one of you winning. Well that's based on the numbers that Motor Trend posted for the '05 CTS-V;

13.1 at 109.8 in the quarter mile.

But as always, it comes down to the driver.

Just made an awesome kill! A 1977 AMC Concorde sedan. White, burgundy interior (with falling headliner) and burgundy top. Totally smoked it.

Actually it kind of smoked itself -- as it blew all kinds of water and crap out its tailpipe along with a gigantic cloud of smoke.
