If Top Gear's test of the C63 AMG, the CTS-V will probably be able to out handle that thing. Seriously, GM at least has improved the cornering and handling of their cars. From the CTS to the Corvette even to the HHR SS, GM has been tuning their performance vehicles at least at the 'Ring. Yeah, I know an American car that can take a corner..... Scary isn't it?

I want one!

So many nice coming that I want...GTR, C63 AMG, CTS-V.

If I can't get a GTR in 2010, then this might be just the ticket.
