Spare thoughts: Cadillac CTS-V and Jaguar XFR

Readers respond to my review last week of the Cadillac CTS-V and Jaguar XFR: "The only thing Cadillac has going for it is its name. The looks of the vehicle went downhill since the turn of the century."

I thought that Pontiac does not put a supercharged engine in the G8 GXP?

You are right, they do not! Whoever wrote that blog was incorrect, if they are comparing it to the current generation CTS-V which has the 556hp LSA 6.2L Supercharged V8. The GXP only gets a 415hp LS3 V8. Maybe he was thinking of the last generation CTS-V with the 400hp LS2 engine. Who knows?

Maybe he's just stupid. That's my spare thought.
