He took Leno through all the intricacies of the car, such as its perfectly formed carbon fiber hood, pizza tray-sized brakes, Recaro bucket seats and electronic limited-slip differential. He also revealed that the CTS-V has a higher top speed than the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, despite having 10 less horsepower.

In case you’ve forgotten, both General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] performance cars feature a supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V-8. The Caddy has a specific output of 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque, which it uses to accelerate to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
