sedean is faster ... M6 will kill both !!
That video is garbage. The CTS-V traps faster through the 1/4 mile than the M5. A 111.8mph trap for the CTS-V is a joke. Don't get me wrong, the M5 will eventually catch and pass the CTS-V, but it will not be going faster at the 1/4 mile.I would like to point out that the Cadillac played a numbers game with the CTS-V and did so very well.
Stock for stock, a CTS-V (coupe or sedan) will undoubtedly beat an M5 or M6 in the quarter mile.
However, take a look at this video:
YouTube - Cadillac CTS-V vs BMW M5 by autocar.co.uk
You can see that the CTS-V makes it to 60 and crosses the 1/4 mile mark faster than the M5, but notice that at the 1/4 mile mark the M5 is actually at a higher speed, and as you see, it eventually passes the CTS-V at a pretty astonishing rate (you could dare to say it blows past it).
I should also mention they were on a poor surface so the actual numbers of both cars were not up to published values, but the cars were both on "equal ground" in this regard.
So while a CTS-V does get off the line much quicker, the M5 and M6 definitely have the advantage at higher speeds and will pretty much always pull ahead as long as the race goes on long enough.
Regarding the "mod-ability" of the two cars, yes, the M5 and M6 are much more expensive to modify and they do not realize as much power gains, but at this rate you might as well bring in many other cars. You bought an M5 or M6 for the package of luxury and performance. If you want to just talk about performance for the money I don't think anyone can argue much with a used $25,000 Lancer Evolution 8 or 9 with about 10K into the motor... You'll be looking at 3200lbs and 600+ AWD HP. No one would touch you below 150mph.
Motortrend had a 6 speed M5 and a 6 speed CTS-V at 115.3 and 117.0, respectively, for 1/4 trap speeds.That video is garbage. The CTS-V traps faster through the 1/4 mile than the M5. A 111.8mph trap for the CTS-V is a joke. Don't get me wrong, the M5 will eventually catch and pass the CTS-V, but it will not be going faster at the 1/4 mile.
The wonderful thing about forced induction cars is that power is so easy to make. A tune and smaller pulley will easily yield another 50 hp or so. A bigger blower will probably get you about 100 hp. With the engine already forged, you need not worry about grenading it with more power.That's a silly thing to say. It's a badass car for what it is, and can be made a lot faster than it is already for VERY cheap. These people are getting 700hp with just a few thousand dollars worth of mods.
M6 will not kill it, but it is faster. The CTS-V is not faster around a track either (at least Nurburgring).... Rhein-Main.Net » Ratgeber » Auto und Verkehr » Power pur: BMW M5 stößt fast schon an die physikalischen GrenzenSedan is not faster and an M6 will not kill both. Not to mention the CTS-V is faster around a track.
Assuming an equal start, how you fare will depend primarily on a) if the CTS-V is stock, many are not since mods are so cheap, and b) what speed the race begins at. Obviously your odds will be much improved the higher speed the race begins at. However, if the guy in the "V" has put even a little money into mods you're not gonna catch him on anything short of an "autobahn type" run.My question was has anyone had a run with one? I know theoretically ctsv is faster! I know my car is not a dragster but I was curious how it would fare against one from a roll.
1-2 cars is what a M5 vs coupe M6 will be. After 130 the M6 pulls. I have seen it in person. Eisenmann sec 1 2 and 3 adds no HP really anyway. Add scoops and you will have him.My best friend has one (2010 sedan). We have played many times on I-75 in Atlanta. He is faster, plain and simple. We do mostly rolls at 50mph. For the most part he has me by 1-2 cars at 130mph where we generally let off. He is completely stock, I have eisenmann sec 1 and RPI sec 2 & 3.
