The 2008 Cadillac STS-V competes solidly against the BMW M5 and the Mercedes E63 AMG, but both of those vehicles have what matters more to many buyers: a faster acceleration time.
Both the M5 and AMG sedans have more of a reputation than the STS-V, and their interiors feel more opulent and exclusive.
Yet another rival is the Jaguar S-Type R, which yields a respectable 400 horsepower from its supercharged V-8 and acceleration numbers that are almost as small, but at a price that's about $15,000 less.
On the downside, the S-Type is a dated design that's soon to be replaced for 2009 by the fresh new XF.
