I asked the same question on vseries.net and got the answer (from only 1 respondent) that the CTS would really "warp" the GTO. I know it has a slightly better rear end ratio -3.78/3.42 - but it weighs about 200 lbs. more.

I'd assume it would be pretty even - considering the parity - 04s - in drive lines.

? ? ? ? ?

the Caddy with the LS6 making 405hp is NOT as quick as an 05 GTO with the LS2 making 400hp. Its not that weight is a factor, its the fact that the LS6 loves to be revved, not worked, and the LS2 dont give a damn what you do with it. :D

I would not say kill it, but we would win. We are a lighter car and have a better engine(In my opinion).

But like duraz said. It would be a drivers race. Especially 6 speeds. I personally have worked two CTS-V's by more than a car length. But they were not good drivers and had manuals. They even knew they were not good drivers.

Also the interior of the GTO is superior in my opinion. But I like the sleek appearance we have(thats why I own one). The CTS is too buttoney(yes I know that is not a word). Like all cadillacs they have all the gizmos that most people like. Personally the GTO has exactly the ammenities that I need.

I personally have test driven both cars and you will feel the difference between the cars. The GTO will be MUCH stronger feeling that the CTS-V. but in actual #'s it is a drivers race with the GTO barely edging the Caddy

Just so ya know, the CTS comes in an auto, the CTS-V with the LS6 was never offered with an auto, manual only.

Of course, it WOULD be better with an auto. :D

cadillac - srt8 - gto

0-30 2.0 2.0 2.0
0-40 2.8 2.9 2.8
0-50 3.8 3.8 4.0
0-60 4.7 4.9 5.0

0-100 11.1 11.7 11.9
1/4 mi. 13.1 13.2 13.3
MPH 109 108 107

There is NO way the caddy is doing 109 when it is 110 lb heavier, although it does have 3.73 gear. Also notice the peaks. The LS6 peaks hp at 6000, LS2 peaks at 5200. Lets talk torque. LS6 is at 4800, LS2 is 4000. Like I said, the LS6 LOVES to be revved up, hence why they needed to put a 3.73 gear in it. BUT, on the street, where it matters, the CTS-V would get pimp slapped !!!
