  1. Sooo, anyone can tell in a glance that’s an old ls2 cts-v. I understand you’re attempting to glorify the hellcat, which it deserves as it is a tremendous vehicle, but at least line it up against some actual competition and don’t bullshit you’re readers.

  2. 2015 CTS-V… Bullshit. That’s a Gen-1 CTS-V (2004-2007), and clearly not a 2015 model. -_-

  3. Definitely not a 2015 CTS-V. They aren’t available with a MANUAL transmission.

  4. That’s a 2005 cts-v, it’s not supercharged. It’s has engine mods and ford 8.8 rear diff. The guy that wrote this article has no idea about cars. Get a new job buddy.

  5. Well i guess 150 extra horsepower buys you 1 second. Damn a 2015 mustang gt will smoke and eat that pos hellcat!

  6. Jesus… Who writes for you guys? Thats a goddamn first gen CTS-V. 04-07, LS6\LS2. 400hp. Ask me how I know…

  7. We are deeply sorry for the wrong information. Yes, that is first generation Cadillac CTS-V

  8. video makes no sense. Why would you race an 11 year old car? Why not line up with the new CTS-V and see what happens then before spouting off that you beat up an old man lol
