Check out, the Mosler TwinStar, a 2000 Cadillac Eldorado with two engines.

z7p80g7m28jl.jpg?550x800m

The car used a 275 horsepower V8 on the front wheels, and a 300 horsepower V8 on the rear wheels for 575 horsepower. Each engine operated independently from another, and 0-60 was in about 5 seconds or less. Top speed was limited to 126 MPH, in excess of 200 without the limiter.

Soo.... what's the point of this car in my opinion: i can say that it's the american version of the BMW M6, but i think it is somehow more breathtaking, because every american car is made to be interesting and fun to enjoy on the road as well as on the track. It has a huuuuuuuge amount of horsepower, an incredibly big engine, much weight and it is long itself, of course because it is a 4 doors sedan and because.... it's an american car...
On the track it drives quickly and beats the BMW M2 timings (don't know the m6) and the Mercedes Benz c63 amg too by few seconds. Because of its weight its brakes are pretty horrible, so it brakes almost more than it acually accellerates, but when it accellerates... ohhh dear it's good.
although i think this car is not made to set laps,but just to be driven around and enoying every second

To be fair, the search feature doesn't work very well for cars with spaces and dashes in their model name.

So fakekiller probably searched for CTS V or CTSV and nothing came up.

Nah its been going on for years, But only more cars have been doing it as of lately, Back in the day it was a few from each company, Remember the Ruf CTR advertised 470Bhp? and F40 at 480Bhp? Which were really 600Bhp+, Buick GNX 280Bhp? Really 350Bhp+, Theres alot to list, But again, Its just more now, I actually think that a stock factory car, It should be illegal, That way everybody is honest and on the up n up, But whatever, We all no whats up/

Yes, the Germans have this new craze about underrating HP on their performance cars. I think they started with the Nissan GT-R (as a response to Nissan) and still haven't stopped.

It could have started from the Nissan GT-R but we should also remember that 2009 458 Italia eclipsed (in terms of performance) most serial supercars in its league. Porsche answered with 997 Turbo/S that had/have about 10-12 % more power than it was claimed. I think it was the Porsche brand which has started that practice of downplaying of power figures.

....This thing looks...Cheap? Vulgar and ordinary?......You must see S65s and F12s all the time....

And a dirty trick?....They are getting a new gen, And a new year..

And familiar with european type of design? Im european and i dont even understand that.

Youve gotta be THE most understood characters on FL.Com lol

Its dirty trick to call 2014 car a 2015 model year. Its done now by almost all american producers. They make in late moths of particular year a car and call it "next year model" its done even for smal |FaceLifts, so buyers have feel that they have all-new generation of the car.

As to this cadilac:
It look cheap to me, its vulgar, and ordinary. I dont like those cars, maybe beceause im to familiar with european type of design.

However it will be fast.


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

And i completely agree with that. Seems so much better, The car is just introduced in December 2014, So why call it 2014 MY? 2015 could work but again, Its gonna come out so late that 2016 would be more appropriate, New sounds better then older when concerning model years.

NIN  6y ago

The "model year" stuff is more about marketing than anything else. For example, if a car comes out (on the dealer lot) in late 2014, they call it "2015 model" to make it seem "new...from the future".

If they called it a 2014, that would make it seem old/played out.

This CTS-V will be out (on dealer lots) in late 2015. It'll be "new" so they call it a 2016.

Call it model year 2015 then...

Yes, the Germans have this new craze about underrating HP on their performance cars. I think they started with the Nissan GT-R (as a response to Nissan) and still haven't stopped.

Audi Twin Turbo V8 is another example of massively underrated horsepower number.

BR2+  6y ago

I like they way they do the model years, This isnt out till summer 2015, So MY 2016 is appropriate, its only 2014 for a few more days, So why would one call it 2014 MY if its not even out to buy yet?...The same could be applied to the 2016 MY too.

And 640Bhp is quite a huge number, Specially concerning a saloon, I would have though 600Bhp even, Cars power are just getting bat shite crazy these days, Not that im complaining, But id like to savor the moment rather then rush into something new.

Question is though, Will it beat the new Panamera Turbo S round a track? Which is arguable the fastest sedan in every category with exception to top speed, And will its price be closer to its older version, Or the M5s?..........

Plus Germans always lie about the real Bhp bout there cars...Maybe the Americans should start too...


User avatar

650 ps seems like an awful big number. But M5 probably already has like 999 on the crank :D

The modelyear bullshit has to stop. What's wrong with you Americanos?

Why the hell do you name your cars "the 2016 model" when it's 2014? Might as well call it the "model year 2077".
