When we think of fast cars, any CTS V-series Cadillac makes its way towards the top of the list. When you start factoring in modifications, things start to get real rowdy. And for the past couple of years, the Cadillac Challenge Series has united a bunch of financially-endowed Cadillac enthusiasts on a race track. Their goal? To determine who has the fastest Caddy in the land. It’s safe to assume that the sound of these LS-motor equipped Cadillacs is nearly deafening, thanks to aftermarket exhaust systems like those available from Corsa Performance — this year’s sponsor of the Cadillac Challenge. And at the end of the 12-race season, Corsa will present the champion with a trophy.
Not all aftermarket exhaust companies are created equal; and to put it shortly, Corsa is most definitely worthy of the Cadillac tuning scene. Not only are its systems excellent noisemakers, they also save weight. Specifically, a Corsa exhaust setup saves 19 pounds and returns a 21-percent gain in exhaust flow compared to the stock unit found in the standard CTS-V.
For those of you that have never heard a CTS-V with a Corsa exhaust, watch the following clip, and check your pants afterwards. Also note that it’s a wagon.
