Nice! Congratulations. I've never actually driven the V-series, but ever since the M5 I drove about ten years ago, I've had a soft spot for the sedan version of the CTS-V. I suspect the coupe is a ton of fun. Post up some reactions when you've had a weekend or two of seat time blasting around in her! Is this a daily-driver, or just a weekender/fun car for you?

That is a way cool car. I remember when they first came out seeing the print ad in one of the car magazines. They posted the car's laptime at the Nurburgring. That takes pure balls. I would love to drive one!!!

My friend has one and wanted me to drive it. I finally got around to it and wow, what a monster. It's only marginally slower than my Cobra and super comfortable. Awesome car. I used about 2000 miles worth of rubber in about 3 miles, fun ride!
4 Passenger Corvette and looks like an old guys car, what could be better,under the cops radar, not loud etc Should be great fun when some "young guy" pulls up in a "tuner" car and thinks it's fast.
So far I really like it. My DD is a mega cab 3500 ram diesel dually. This is more of a weekend car for me. It is definately comfortable enough to be a DD. What blows my mind is you can sprint from 0-120 and have a conversation with the passenger. Its dead quite cruising at a 100mph. Definately an amazing car. Great acceleration, great handling, excellent Recaro seats and cadillac luxury. My father in law bought a ZR1 last year. You can tell the engines are basically the same. Gobs of torque from 2000 up.
My cobra is a different animal all together. My car has next to nothing until 3500rpm, then you have to keep up with the shifts just to stay out of the limiter. Its violent, seems faster than the zr1 with the quick shifting dog-ringed trans. The "V" I believe can keep up with the other two without a doubt.
