Cadillac is smitten with the V-Series, and if the CTS-V is any indication, the driving public should be pretty excited about other V iterations as well. The next car to get V'ed will be the larger STS sedan, already a fine handler, and with the serious incoming power upgrades, a potential real competitor for the new V10 BMW M5. A supercharged Northstar V8 will most likely dispense 400-500 horsepower (hopefully closer to 500 if it wants to threaten the M) and the transmission may be a bonafide six-speed manual, as Cadillac wants to keep the emphasis squarely on the "sports" element of sports sedan. It shall debut in January at the Detroit auto show, so sit tight.
