Default CTS-V LSA or 5.0 GT

How would a 2011+ 5.0 GT (LTs, CAI, catback/xpipe, BOSS intake and tune) hold up against a stock or LTs/cai/tune 2009+ CTS-V?

Id say the V walks the GT. I could be way off, but would like to see it.

I agree on the not C5 related part. BUT....

The CTS-V is a female car ? WOW Do you even know what a CTS-V is ?

Go drive one and come back and tell us how much slower it is than your C5

There you go. That's actually the V against a Cobra GT500. Even better

Yeah, I know what a CTS-V is. There is one down the street, and a girl/milf drives it. It's still a girl car. now, to expand on your knowledge, why didn't you state that the Mustang wasn't a girl car? It's a biased opinion on both your and my side.

On point to consider, is that the OP stated it was a 2009 CTS and not the new CTS V.

well early commercials for the original mustang does show it being marketed to women.

I don't like Mustangs and I don't keep up with who drives them, however I would anticpate that Cobras and GTs are geared towards men and V6s are geared toward women, same thing applies to the CTS line.
But to assume that the CTS-V is a female car because your neighbor drives one is ignorant.
there are women that drive Vettes, and I know a few. Would you say the vette is a female car in this case ?

Read the OPs post again. It says 2009 CTS-V. It still is a lot of ***** and power for a Stang.

I think there is a Motor Trend video of a new CTS-V beating a GT500. Probably a couple years old.

One thing to consider. Reading is fundamental.
