Interesting that its 1 seoond faster here, Yet one second slower at LS then the CTSV, Where you would think the much slower corners and the Awd would help out more.....

Motor Trend wouldn't allow it to be faster than the CTS-V

The Cadillac is relatively light and nimble for its class, that's why I could imagine that an M5 with a very slight AWD-understeer-tendency could lose time.
Not to mention that the CTS-V was just incredibly quick in LS, a track focused BMW M4 GTS was just about one second faster than the Caddy...
