Oh, I agree completely. For the price, the CTS-V is one hell of a car, but the statement that it is the fastest sedan in the world is clearly incorrect. If you are going by value, I definitely agree that the CTS-V is a much, much, much better deal. Honestly, I don't even find the Panamera good looking and I think it is grossly overpriced, but the performance is undeniable. I mean, if someone had brought a Panamera Turbo to that shootout, I'm fairly certainly it would have won, because GM made the bold claim that it was faster than any other sedan in the world, regardless of price.

If you put a $100k cap on it, NOTHING in the same size class as the CTS-V can touch it, and that's pretty damn impressive to anyone who isn't absolutely dead set on ignoring it.
