It’s not very often that a car is so blindingly fast that it’s on board computer management systems thinks there’s a problem. Well if it’s going to happen to anyone, it’s going to happen to John Hennessy and his crew. Watch as their 700 pony-pushing CTS-V runs an 11 second quarter-mile, and then procedes to alert On-Star because .99 G’s of acceleration registers as a “vehicle event”.
PS: This CTS-V SCREAMS!

Tickets for Top Gear’s studio audience are currently being sold for Wednesday, October 29th. This would be for the first episode of Top Gear’s new season, which would indicate that the first episode should air on Sunday, November 2nd. Can’t wait to see what trio has in store for us.
Sneak Peak: Judging by the photos I’ve seen, there will be a shootout between Chevy’s ZR1, the Dodge Challenger and Cadillac’s CTS-V. Whether that will be featured in the first episode or not will remain to be seen, but it’s definitely in the works.
