The Cadillac STS-V is powered by a supercharged, 4.4 litre,
Northstar V8 developing 469 horsepower and 439 ft-lbs of torque
mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.
The during its development, the Cadillac STS-V was tuned for
performance on virtually every road condition and environment
including GMs all-new Milford Road Course facility and
the Nordschleiffe (North Course) at Nurburgring.
As a result of this extensive development, the Cadillac STS-V
has track-capable acceleration, braking and cornering abilities.
This is due, in part, to increased tire sizes (P255/45R18 front,
P275/40R19 rear); increased brake rotor diameters, larger pad
areas, and larger calipers; increased stiffness stabilizer bars
and suspension springs; a faster steering ratio; and chassis
tuning aimed at delivering high performance without punishing
