I wonder if the CTS super V may have AWD? The STS is available in AWD and built on same platform in the same plant. Perhaps its being built to tackle the Audi RS6s in SCCA GT WC racing? With their AWD and a standing start they just pull away from the field and if it rains... forget it. Also it would be an answer to the new BMW V10 M5 due next year with 500hp. My guess it will get the V12 or the Z06 6.3L 3 valve motor.

No, the M5 will have 500hp but less than 400 ftlbs of torque (395) which is what the CTS-V has now. The M5 is going to be a very high reving motor. A CTS SV will most likely have 450 to 500 ftlbs of torque so no the M5 will not pull away.
