My supercharged SRT 10...

Makes me feel like a 16 year old again...that's a net loss of 56 years!

Three years ago if anyone would have said I would buy a Cadillac, I would have laughed in their face...opps...I could not pass up a 556 hp, 551 ft tq, supercharged sedan with a 100,000 mile factory warranty!

She is a 12 second quarter mile beast, that set the sedan record at Nurenburgring...just under 8 minutes, which is faster than any Mercedes or BMW.

The LSA engine is much like the LS9 in the ZR1 Corvette...this is not our Dad's Cadillac!!

How does the SRT-10 do on gas?
I'm assuming it's pretty absurd...

Really not too bad. About 11 mpg.

But if I am feeling frisky...I can get the mpg down to around 4...not sure if that is lots of fuel through the cylinders...or just a huge amount of wheel rotation without much distance being achieved...or both!

In chemistry terms "sublimation" (a physical change directly from the solid to the gaseous state without becoming liquid)
