The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is a competent sedan that holds water against its German competitors but will stick in our heads because of its brute "wow"-inducing acceleration. The car just has power in droves, hindered only by the automatic transmission necessary gear changes and some split second indecisiveness under part-to-full throttle changes. It is neck-snapping head-rush-generating thrill ride with gobs of flat always-there force that just never relents until you back down. This engine isn't simply a moderately powerful V-8 slipped under the Cadillac's hood. It is a ZR1-dervied 556-hp motor that provides a deep V-8 burble with a smidge of Supercharger whine and designed to do one thing: to push its occupants to the upper echelons of the speedometer.
Speaking of the speedometer, despite sitting front and center and having the more spacious pod all to itself, it felt small and hard to read on anything but mundane driving. It doesn't really matter because it is best to keep your eyes on the large (extremely large) number that sits on the small screen perfectly located under the rpm gauge in the first pod; that number combined with the revs will give you a good idea of how fast you are going in more spirited driving. More importantly it will allow you to pop off the necessary gear changes with the F1-style paddles located on the back of the steering wheel when in the six-speed automatic's manual mode. Move too quick and you won't get the most power; move too slow and you will slam into the rev-limiter. That rpm gauge comes with a nice line of red glowing dots that follow the needle in its half circle rotation and help you quickly determine how far before the next gear change.
The ride in the Cadillac CTS-V is tight—enhanced by the way the seats suck you in and hold you snug like a mom's bear hug after her child's first stint at summer camp—and solid: no shakes, shimmers, or unnecessary rattles; the car is built extremely well. It corners flat with a touch of understeer and with tons of tenacious grip that even the raw power of this motor has a hard time breaking. The small-diameter microfiber-covered steering wheel is very low in telepathy and provides little feedback when the Magnetic Ride Control Suspension system is in touring mode. In fact, it is more disconnected than it probably should be, with some yacht-like feelings where the movement of the steering wheel doesn't always cause the reaction you think it should. The Stabilitrak system is there to provide the small nudges that Boost confidence but is never intrusive and never saps the power or life out of the car or drive. Immense stopping power is provide by the car's huge 15-inch rotors up front and 14.7-inch rotors at the rear.
The inside of the CTS-V can be summed up in one word: "shiny"; giving our test car an air of cheapness. The dashboard and center console in our tester had glossy, easily scratched black plastic instead of wood inlays. To add even more glare in a bright day, polished aluminum trim encircles each zone of the dashboard. Like the angular exterior, the interior also has some sharp edges. Although these provide the car with its trademark stand-out-in-a-pack looks, the angles can be do right painful, literally. Hit the crease in the trunk lid or the sharp angle at the edge of the dashboard and you will damn the designer. The optional Recaro seats are absolutely phenomenal; even giving us the desire to rip them out and use them as desk chairs afterwards. Besides looking really cool, they are soft and comfortable with tons of lumbar support and, with ventilation for both seats in the front, you and your co-pilot never have to worry about sweaty backs or cold butts.
In all the 2010 CTS-V is a real player in the mid-size luxury performance sedan market. It has the right power, the right build quality, the right performance, the right size, and the right amount of luxury to easily persuade someone from its German competitors.
2011 Bugatti VEYRON 16.4 Super Sport in Blue
It was on a beautiful cool sunny day that the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport achieved a
new land speed world record for production cars. On the proving grounds of
the Volkswagen Group, and in the presence of a representative of Guinness
Book of Records, the Super Sport achieved an average top speed of 267.81
If a model was especially popular or highly successful in races, Ettore
Bugatti's customers often pushed the car's founder to pull a few more horsepower out of the
engine of their future cars. Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. had been in a
similar situation when its existing customers asked the company to not only
design their second model to be different visually but to also create a
version with a sportier and more extreme driving experience. The result is
a car with an incredible 1,200 hp, a maximum torque of 1,106 lbs.-ft., and
a limited top speed of 257.9 mph (to protect the tires), all of which
offers experienced drivers a whole new dimension of excitement.
Continuous work in extreme performance ranges lead to constantly new
conclusions, which enabled the engineers at Bugatti to develop the Veyron in a new direction. Every
modification is designed to produce an even more powerful and agile car.
Four enlarged turbochargers and bigger
Intercoolers have been used
to Boost the power of the
16-cylinder engine, and the chassis has been extensively redesigned to
maintain safety at extreme speed—thanks to stronger stabilizers and new
shock absorbers with a complex architecture originally developed for
This gives noticeably more precise control of the wheels and the car as a
whole. With lateral acceleration of up to 1.4g and improved interaction
between the tires and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super
Sport offers perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration out of
The body has been fine-tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain
perfect balance in every situation, while the new fiber structure of the
all-carbon monocoque ensures maximum torsion rigidity and passive
safety—at reduced weight. The skin is made entirely of carbon-fiber
composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is
available in 100 percent clear-lacquered exposed carbon on request.
The Super Sport's flat, elongated silhouette is immediately recognizable.
The 16-cylinder engine gets its air from two NACA ducts integrated into the
roof, rather than from scoops above the engine. The front air intakes have
been expanded and reshaped, with the lower one extending elegantly around
the sides to the wheel arch. The revised back looks sportier due to the
double diffuser and a centrally arranged Exhaust system.
Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. has sold 260 Veyrons and 35 Grand Sports, of
which 249 Veyrons and 22
Grand Sports had been delivered. The Super Sport will begin production this
autumn at Molsheim along with the Veyron and the Grand Sport. The
first five cars—known as the World Record Edition—are in a special
black exposed carbon and orange finish and have already been sold.
The Lamborghini Ankonian Concept
From the darkest depths of the design mind of the one called Slavche
Tanevski comes THIS! The Lamborghini *Ankonian. It's black. It's sharp.
It's just fabulous. It's named after a bull famous for its black hair,
which follows the Feruccio Lamborghini (creator of the auto brand)
tradition of naming cars after bulls. This bad boy is a proposal for the
first Lamborghini hybrid scheduled for 2016. Flashy!
And I don't mean flashy in any kind of bad way. This car is of a
cab-backwards style, which is new for the modern Lamborghini. It's got a
narrow body and complex aesthetics mixed with a combination of soft and
It's not quite "green," but it's does have that sort of environmental
friendliness in mind with it's downsisedness. And hows it look so hot roddy
and light? That fabulous tail on the back, the classic headlight graphics,
and those very thin OLEDs embedded between the surfaces. Eccentricities on
top of mystery. Two big Exhausts as
eyes and diffuser as a mouth.

both cars now feed power to all four wheels instead of just the back two.
This means that Jaguar can directly compete with cars from other premium
