Cadillac CTS V Wagon At Nurburgring Jonny Ponderin
The editors at Motor Trend spent a year with a 2011 Cadillac CTS-V wagon, one of the most special vehicles currently available. Before the time came to return the keys to Cadillac, senior features editor Jonny Lieberman decided to plan a fitting goodbye, which is featured in the newest episode of Epic Drives. What Lieberman came up with was a no brainer. Why not send the Caddy wagon to the Nurburgring? The famed track essentially served as the CTS-V’s boot camp years ago, playing a significant part in the development of the Caddy’s suspension tuning, among other things. For fans of the CTS-V (or the ‘Ring), the video won’t disappoint. Not only does Lieberman take a spin around the track, but he also hands over the keys to General Motors’ racecar driver Johnny O’Connell, who attempts to beat the lap time posted by a CTS-V sedan years ago. Does he succeed? Watch the video to find out.

Cadillac CTS V Rear Right Side View
If you've ever driven a Cadillac CTS-V, you know that the main problem is that it's not fast enough. The 98-pound weakling under the hood makes only 556 hp, barely enough to pull Bambi across the proverbial frozen pond. Fortunately, longtime speed merchant John Hennessey recognized the Caddy's noodle-armed feebleness and resolved to do something about it, creating the V700 package at his Texas skunk works. With a little old-fashioned hot-rodding, perhaps the CTS-V could be transformed into something that's not a plodding embarrassment to all America.

I'm not one to COMPLAIN, but being an observant Jew at a car magazine has its challenges. For one, there's one day every week, from sundown on Friday until one hour after sunset on Saturday, during which I do not drive, in honor of the Jewish Sabbath. Even if it's a really, really cool car. I'm also limited in where I go to eat: Michigan may still be the epicenter of the U.S. auto industry, but it's hardly a destination for kosher food.

The all-new 2013 Cadillac ATS, along with the 2013 XTS, will be among the first General Motors vehicles to wear Brembo brake calipers that are produced, not in Italy, but the U.S.; the Brembo calipers that will be see on the new ATS and the XTS will be the company’s first U.S.-produced calipers.
Hennessey Cadillac CTS V Wagon Texas Mile 1
John Hennessey and crew have been cranking out stupid fast cars for two decades. Not only is he the founder of Hennessey Performance; he’s also a client. His daily driver happens to be Cadillac CTS-V pumped up to more than 700 horsepower that he loving refers to as “The Hammer Wagon.”

Recall Date

Component
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION
Summary
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) notified the agency on July 2, 2014 that they are recalling 554,328 model year 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured August 16, 2001, to April 28, 2014, and 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured March 20, 2003, to August 11, 2006. In these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequences
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two key rings and an insert in the key slot or a cover over the key head on all ignition keys, free of charge. The recall began on September 15, 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14172.
