    Wow!!! Looking at those on the list... how many are built by GM and I will say it again.. I don't care what U think of General Motors, they have the absolute best automotive engineering on the planet. No other manufacturer does as much sheer performance RIGHT, and still can be driven as a daily driver with no real thoughts of having to keep a Tow truck driver on speed dial.


    Look in the first four columns of shortest times.. GM has 16 vehicles. The closest to them is all purpose built Sports car having Porsche with 13.

    Cadillac... I said CADILLAC.. makes an appearance 3 times before U see one of the "World's Ultimate Driving Machines," Car and Driver's baby.. show up.

    So the CTS-V is the fastest sedan they have ever had on the Lightning run? Pretty impressive!

    Lets make a list of all the next set of ( negative to GM - nice for whomever ).... talking points.

    That 2013 time posted for the 1LE continues to be impressive by today's standards....still smacks around the 2015 GT.

    Yes it is. Looking at its time versus the V10 R8 makes me truly wonder what a CT9 Supercar could really be even if they just used a modified Alpha or Omega platform as a basis. I also think the CT6, with either the 3.0TT and a probable Vsport with V8TT are gonna turn the segment upside down in terms of performance and handling

    Makes you wonder how much quicker a theoretical mid-engined Vette might be. Keep in mind the current car is already front mid-engined and they seem to keep finding ways to get more and more power to the ground. Maybe a lightweight AWD system would be a better path?

    Please keep in mind that in 2014 the track was replaced and the track supposedly is 1.5 to 2 seconds faster ..

    Still the gm showing is dam impressive. I'm sure tire technology has advanced quite a bit as well over the years.

    The c7 z06 destroys the competition even in 100 degree heat.

    And didn't they say the next SS will be faster than the last 1LE?

    Yup.

    The GM engineering team is so great I have a good mind to try to take my Impala or even the Yukon... Lol.. out on that track. I bet you I still come out on top of some of those cars on the list.

    The CTS-V is the fastest sedan tested so far, but it would be interesting what a Porsche Panamera would do in caparison.
