The Cadillac STS-V is a high-performance executive car of the V-Series produced in a single generation since 2005 (MY 2006) by Cadillac. It was designed to compete with European competition such as the BMW M5, Audi RS6, and Mercedes E63 AMG.[citation needed]

Cadillac gave the public its first glimpse of the STS-V in its Super Bowl commercial, which aired February 6, 2005. The STS-V premiered with a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 4.9 seconds with roll-out and 5.1 seconds without roll-out. [1] The STS-V was introduced at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show. It was available for sale in late 2005.

The STS-V sports a supercharged 4.4 L version of the Northstar V8, certified by the SAE to produce 469 hp (350 kW) and 439 lb·ft (595 N·m). This engine is mated to a driver-adjustable automatic transmission with two shifting modes, larger brakes by Brembo, larger 10 spoke alloy wheels (18″x8.5″ front, 19″x9.5″ rear), Pirelli run-flat tires, a faster steering ratio, and a stiffer suspension than the standard STS. The engine block and cylinder heads are aluminum, the camshaft is cast iron, and the crankshaft is forged steel. Suspension is fully independent and there are four settings for the traction control and stability control.
