Wow! I think I just messed up my pants.....


Errr wait, maybe that's cuz of my pain meds? Ummmm, nope, it's definitely due to having viewed this hella sick LMS modified CTS-V!


From an aesthetic stand point alone, I really like the suttle hint of yellow on the brake calipers. Just enough IMO and it plays off well in relation to the yellow found in the OEM V Badging!


Yet another fantastic product / project from LMS!


Great job (yet again) boys :thumb:

These vehicles are really nice, but interiors are considerably smaller than SHO. Wish it had about 4" more rear seat leg room. Coupe really has rear visibility issues.


Wondering what kind of 1/4 mi ET & Speed it will do? Have seen them run in low 11's with limited mods down here at Bradenton.


And I believe this is just a 1900 Supercharger. Just think what it would do with a KB 2800 & 90 lb injectors!


For anyone interested, there is a 2011 on ebay with under 4K mi, that was turned in to insurance co due to sunroof open with overnight rain. Has rebuilt title due to extremely wet carpets. For sale in NY for $47K & Change. Pearl White & Loaded, with Recaros. Original cost was over $70K. Similar(but Black) lease return 2011 in Texas (every option - 15K mi) is $55K. Really want one, but just to small for us, compared to G8.
