The Cadillac CTS-V has become a drag strip threat - whenever such a machine shows up for a racing session, its opponents have serious reasons to worry. This reputation is mostly owned to the second generation of the GM machine, but the current, third-gen model can't be ignored. And this is why we're here to show you a Gen III CTS-V doing its thing at the strip.
The Caddy, which comes with generous mods, took part in the recent Street Car Takeover event in Denver, with the sedan taking on a mighty adversary. We're referring to a Mclaren 570S - this might be part of the Sport Series, but we're talking about an all-out supercar here.

From the power-to-weight ratio, to the seven-speed dual-clutch tranny and the splendid take-off abilities, the Woking animal we have here comes with plenty of tech assets.

The two duked it out at the strip, with the trap speed being the one that mattered for the event we have here. And since the piece of footage documenting the adventure offers a complete take on the matter (the 1320video crew did a flawless job, as always), you'll easily get to see the terminal velocity values for the two.

Now, those of you who happen to be in a rush, can skip to the 2:34 point of the clip for the confrontation mentioned above. Nevertheless, the rest of the clip is also worthy of your time, as it packs plenty of effervescent battles, as well as wacky machines.

For instance, you'll get to check out the twin-engined third-generation Volkswagen Golf we've previously shown you at work. To nobody's surprise, the event was also attended by crazy Honda builds (Civics for the win, of course), with this resulting in 9-second quarter-mile adventures. And these are just a part of the adventures that await you behing the "play" button below.
