Yes, leave it to the wealthy folks in Milford to celebrate and increase of conspicuous consumption, both in goods and fuel, while the rest of us struggle to conserve our meager resources. Nice call Topix editor, you nailed your demographic.

Well, for starters our “meager resources” aren’t very scanty at all. Indeed we have plenty of oil right here in our own backyard, yet liberals and demo-quaks consistently fail the people of this great nation by preventing us from drilling, rather we opt to pay foreign countries for our product. Further, just last week the brained Senators of the Demo-quack party pushed legislation to address high oil prices. Might you be privy enough to share detail on the failed bill? Well, just for starters the bill placed (of all things) a TAX on the oil companies, wow-just wow. Correct the aforementioned and bingo, you’ll be paying less for your gas.

As for the car – I have some news for you; this car will be produced in limited numbers and frankly, if you don’t want one, don’t buy it. Rather go out and buy a Prius, in an effort to save the planet. Wow- just wow.

BTW- the “Topix Editor” didn’t post this story, rather the automatic web surfing tool AKA “roboblogger” found and posted this piece.

Good clear thinking 70plyRR. We certainly need to explore our vast oil resources in Alaska, and with current technology, can do it without environmental disruption. Add to that the need to build more gasoline refineries.

I wonder if the "greenie weenies" that are raving about plug-in hybrids and other such nonsense have any idea how much their electricity bills will increase when they are charging these sorry electric cars, or how much it will cost them to replace the batteries? It can't be as cheap as maintaining a cell phone.

Still gets around 28 mpg. Not much different than most V-8's. For about $960,000 more you can cut that 0-60 time by 1.8 seconds in a Bugatti Veyron. Incidentally, that car will burn through an entire 26 gallon tank of gas in about 75 miles.

It's the quickest production luxury sedan on the market. I say, to achieve this and still be street legal, as well as getting 28 mpg, it's a huge accomplishment.

I hope it's more refined than the Gen 1 CTS-V. That thing had all sorts of NVH issues and a throbbing shifter (even at a stoplight). It had brute strength, but was never in the same refinement class as some of its competition. For the 99% of the time drivers aren't pushing the limits, they want some comfort and smoothness.

I agree, the CTS is a wonderful vehicle that other envy to build.
