2013 BMW M5 vs. 2012 Cadillac CTS-V - One guess who the winner is!



Road and Track always puts together epic head to head battles of class leaders. Just a few yeas ago the Cadillac CTS-V came out of nowhere and knocked the E60 M5 off it's perch as the king of high powered sports sedans. BMW is now back with the 2013 F10 M5, I'll give you one guess who wins this match up.

Itís tough to be the king. Sit upon a throne long enough and someoneís bound to come along and try to knock you offóas was the case in the summer of 2008 when Cadillac released its all-new CTS-V to challenge the nearly 4-year-old sports sedan king, the BMW M5 (2009 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2008 BMW M5 SMG). It was a historic moment that has helped to redefine Cadillacís image. GMís luxury division made no bones about it in 2008, as it specifically developed the CTS-V to knock the 2005Ė2010 E60 M5 off its pedestal. BMW graciously rose to the challenge and fought it out with the upstart on the racetrack, the BMW driven by Bill Auberlen and the CTS-V by John Heinricy. Not surprisingly, the CTS-V narrowly edged out the M5. If it hadnít, we suspect someone in Cadillacís engineering department would have been fired. Fast forward and BMW is now ready for some payback with its new F10 M5.
