There were two versions of the CTS-V1, the 5.7-liter LS6 and the 6.0-liter LS2. The initial version was a rival for smaller cars like the Audi S4 V8, the BMW 330i Performance Package (there was no M3 sedan at the time), and the Mercedes-AMG C32, but the final version eventually turned it into a rival for bigger cars like the Audi S6 V10, BMW M5 V10, and Mercedes-AMG E55 Kompressor.

Notice that I said "rival", not competitor. The Series 1 CTS-V had no true competitors - unless you count the Chrysler 300C and 300 SRT8 models, or maybe the Lincoln LS V8 Sport, and even those had much different approaches to a performance package.
