A bittersweet end to a fantastic week with a fantastic car — on one hand, it will be difficult giving up this 556-horsepower beast, but on the other, I’ll be glad to see it go. You see I absolutely loved the acceleration, the handling; in fact, everything about driving the CTS-V is a true joy. But my pocket book hurts from visiting the gas pumps on what seemed like a daily basis.
I averaged 14.8L/100km over the course of my weekly adventures; a couple of all-highway trips offered slightly better fuel consumption at 12.9L/100km. On the track, I was surprised that I averaged a rather sane 35.8L/100km (only slightly worse than what Paul Williams managed during his week with the car driving in the city (20L/100km)). I’m also looking forward to driving a car that will not be a speeding ticket magnet — not that I got any, but let’s just say I could have.
A fantastic car that far exceeded my expectations — hey Santa, I want one please!
