CTS-V Challenge – um, yeah. CTS-V’s kick butt

The results of yesterday’s CTS-V challenge are out and, as you might expect, the CTS-V cleaned up on Monticello’s 3+ mile track.

Taking 1st-3rd and 5th-7th and 10th places – the V’s acquitted themselves quite well.

The best challenger was a BMW M3 in the 4th spot. 8th was filled with what many consider the V’s closest competitor, the BMW M5. The M5 with it’s 500hp was fewer than 3 seconds ahead of the 9th place Mitsubishi Evolution.

11th-12th were brought up by the Jaguar XF (note, Jaguar was supposed to supply an XF-R for the competition but felt that its brakes were not up to the task of competitive laps and backed out at the last minute) and the Audi RS4.

See the official results below:
