Nothing with any level of luxury.
The Z06 is a beast that I would love to own.
The CTS-V is a beast with luxury and that back seat if needed. King Kong in a tuxedo.

I thought even with our eco problems they would try and strong arm us on price.

Yes, Kampfer, I do need 556hp to get groceries. Who doesn't?

If they will drop that CTS another 2K that would be quite the dilemma.

My biggest "want" is TORQUE.

CTS-V, with its supercharged 6.2-liter LSA engine, has achieved SAE-certified peak output of 556 horsepower (415 kW) at 6100 rpm and 551 lb.-ft. (747 Nm) of torque at 3800 rpm.CTS-V accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. CTS-V covers the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 118 mph. These acceleration times are believed to be the fastest for any V-8-powered sedan currently in production.
More than just power, CTS-V also includes a comprehensive suite of technical and design enhancements, including Magnetic Ride Control and a new automatic transmission with paddle-shift control. Cadillac pioneered Magnetic Ride Control, the world's fastest-acting suspension, in 2004. The new CTS-V employs a new version of this technology, enabling it to achieve a remarkably wide bandwidth of capability that ranges from extreme high-performance agility to the smooth road manners of a prestigious luxury sedan.

I believe the Z06 is rated at 470lb-ft at 4,800 rpm.
F/I does wonderful things to a V8......
