Cadillac seems to be using ringers with the CTS-V as well. Road and Track got an 11.6 @ 126.1 out of the stock CTS-V. Yet, it took a tuned example on drag radials to match this trap speed running 11.2 @ 126.
Here we have a 100% stock 2016 CTS-V running 11.680 @ 121.19:
How does Road and Track get trap numbers for the CTS-V similar to a tuned car? How did Car and Driver get ATS-V trap speed numbers similar to a tuned ATS-V?
Cadillac isn't the only one playing this game as BMW is known to use special 'press files' for testing. It just goes to show what we have previously said that magazine testing is becoming useless with the politics and games involved. Ferrari makes a mockery of the whole process.
It's a shame this is what automotive testing has become.
