    Not necessarily mate. I don't think it would be really any different from our current Caprice sold to the US. GM just subsidises the whole affair. How cheap would a stripped out 4 DOOR Cadillac sedan be with a few goodies in it, even call it a BT-1 if they must.
    IMHO I think it would be the best sedan AUS Police agencies could get their hands on post 2017.

    "Somewhere" being Harrop since it's a HTV...?
    They'll need it though, sounds pretty lack lustre in standard guise

    At this stage that'd be my thoughts too,...it's a pretty complex "electronic" type engine,...I reckon that if a blower did go on, ya'd have to do a heap of other stuff too.

    Update ... GM have knocked back this initiative due to the driveline capabilities - it's a bit merky for me but it appears that there are 2 types of Auto trans used in the car - an 8spd for some markets and a 9spd for Australia and US and the 9spd was the reason they couldn't get it through durability .... so I guess it will surface in the aftermarket somewhere!
