Albany VSTR Appreciation Thread


Standard Deluxe 59

It might not, but I'm hoping it does. Biggest engine they have for CTSV is a V8 but it is supercharged at around 600hp. The car Scafter V12 is based on has 800hp.. but y'know V12.. 🤷‍♂️

 

I would like to see testing, tbh. If someone is in mood for it.

(I haven't been able to find anything)

The CTSV has a 6.2L V8 supercharged with 640HP.

The Schafter V12 will not beat it around a track. It's traction grip is way poorer than the Albany V-STR in the corners. The VSTR handles too much like a sports car with the amazing grip. Schafter V12 takes more patience. Btw, the 2017 Cadillac CTSV does 0-60(0-100km/h) in 3.6 seconds with a 200mph(321km/h) top speed. The Schafter V12 in real life does 230mph.

I always thought the regular Schafter V12 was an E-Class as well and the LWB was supposed to be an S-Class. 

 

Granted European cars aren't my strongest point. I can you tell you every difference between Ford's Panther Platform trio but it will take me a little longer to point them out on a Mercedes-Benz. 

It is based off the 2010 Brabus V E V12 sedan. The overall shape and rear looks identical. The front end headlights is from another Mercedes benz for sure.

I'd argue that Brabus just happens to make an E Class with a V12 and it's a coincidence. But I still stand by the theory it's an S65 AMG because the original GTA IV Schafter almost certainly was. 🤔

The old gen gta 4 schafter was the early 2000s Mercedes benz S class I believe.

Oof.

 

VSTR can be driven aggressive? high grip and good acceleration?

It feels like a paragon r around corners and the acceleration way superior to the schafter V12.

Thats really cool. Though I was hoping it would fishtail a bit like the real ctsv (traction off ofc)

That's wild. I guess we're getting ourselves a real super sedan oof

I already knew this and seen the video. The handling is like the paragon r. 

It does fishtail if you push it too hard and because it's rwd.

Okay that's good, I fear it would be awd. I guess more refined handling makes sense considering it is still a luxury car. True Presidente at heart :)

Awesome. Thanks! Thought it looked like it had a bit of a matte finish to it. I bet it’ll still look clean in metallic also. 👍

I got some options I’m planning on trying. Cadillac Atlantic metallic blue and Bronze Sand metallic. Just nice clean and simple. Not sure if that fits into the catagory of “old folks car” or not.... Honestly if that is an old folks car then that’s an old folk I sure as sh*t don’t mind being!

One of mine will be pearly white, the other one will probably be bluish grey metallic. If only i could option out a vinyl top...

At least I ain't painting it chrome with totally swaggin' dollar sign wheels. Haha. 

But yeah these aren't the right Cadillacs for a vinyl top. Doesn't even look too good on a DTS or last gen Deville. I saw an XTS at a used car lot that had thin strip white walls and a cream fabric top and that didn't look good either.
