GM's Bob Lutz challenges auto journalists to beat his Cadillac CTS-V this Thursday |

You probably heard about this outrageous thing by now, but for those of you not in the know, GM’s vice chairman, Bob Lutz, has challenged anyone who believes they can beat him and his Cadillac CTS-V to a race, being held this Thursday at Monticello Motor Club in New York.

Taking him up on this offer will be a few well known automotive journalists, but also a few regular people with their own cars. Among the competition the Caddy will be up against will be a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, a BMW M5, an Audi RS4 or a BMW M3.

It’s going to be one hell of a competition, but in the end, GM’s Caddy will certainly walk away with the best reputation due to Lutz’s marketing prowess. The full list of participants can be found at this address.
