Supercharged Cadillac STS-V, member Eddie FourFather Hill's personal car for sale


Recommended Posts

Supercharged Cadillac STS-V, Eddie and Ercie Hill's personal car, for sale.

 

The most powerful Cadillac ever built at the time, powered by a supercharged and intercooled 4.4 liter Northstar double overhead camshaft, variable cam timing, V-eight with 469 HP and 439 ft.lbs., and six-speed automatic that is driver-selectable for either automatic or manual shift mode, should you want to shift it yourself.

 

French-stitched beautifully grained leathers for the top of the dash, the center console, and the door panels.

 

It has larger Brembo brakes, larger 10 spoke alloy wheels, 18x8.5 fronts and 19x9.5 rear, with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that I installed only a couple thousand miles ago, with no measurable wear yet.

 

The STS-V has a faster steering ratio and stiffer suspension than the standard STS, and the performance, braking, and handling is thrilling, beyond anything I ever expected with a four-door.

 

This is the 2006 model, the silver four door, with black interior. This has been our personal car for the last several years, and I absolutely love it. It is by far the coolest looking, fastest, best handling, most exclusive, and with the most amenities, of any sedan I've ever had.

 

I have never felt the need to personally check it, but Wikipedia quotes the 0-60 as 4.8 seconds. That might be a little better with the stickier Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires I now have on the car, which are higher traction than the factory equipped tires.

 

However, the need to carry more than than Ercie and me has never materialized, and we have never had anyone ride in the rear seat. So I am going back to my preference for a smaller, two-door (or no-door) car. I have had one Mustang, fourteen Corvettes, and four Ariel Atoms, so smaller and lighter is my preference, if I don't need the passenger capacity.

 

The new price on this STS-V was over $77,090, and it has the performance and features to justify the price. There were 1,306 of these built for this 2006 model year, and total production over four years was 2,503, so these are quite rare, and I have never seen another one anywhere.

 

Partial list of equipment.

 

Supercharged 4.4 liter 469 HP V-8, Dual Overhead Cams 32 valve, with variable cam timing

 

6-speed shiftable transmission

 

Rear wheel drive, limited slip rear differential

 

18 and 19 inch alloy wheels with super premium tires

 

Active, self-leveling suspension

 

Rain-sensing windshiel wipers (This is a cool feature, watching the wipers come on by themselves when needed)

 

Power glass sunroof, with a sliding door to completely block the sun if desired

 

4-wheel ventilated disc brakes with ABS

 

Traction Control

 

Stability control

 

Competetive Driving mode available, where Traction Control and /or Stability control can be turned off

 

 

Dual front side-mounted airbags

 

Front and Rear head curtain airbags

 

Xenon high intensity discharge headlights

 

Tire pressure monitoring system with in-dash readout

 

Rear parking sensors

 

Leather and suede upholstery

 

8-way power front seats

 

Memory seat for two drivers

 

Heated front and rear seats

 

Easy entrance and exit feature, which automatically retracts the seat to the rearmost position and raises the steering wheel for easy exit and then re-entry., with out having to push any buttons

 

Tilt and telescope steering wheel

 

Heated steering wheel

 

Dualzone front climate control

 

Rear seat climate control

 

We had the windows tinted to the maximum legal tint

 

DVD navigation system

 

Remote start feature - This is great when the weather is hot or cold, because you can start the car a minute or two before getting in, and the automatic climate control has it comfortable as soon as you get in!

 

Bose premium AM/FM in-dash 6 CD/DVD stereo with FIFTEEN speakers! BIG sound! If you love music like I do, this is a real plus!

 

XM satellite radio

 

OnStar telecommunications service

 

One-touch pushbutton start, keyless, and keyless entry. With the fob in your pocket, just walk up to the car and pull the door handle, no key to fool with, get in the car and one-touch the starter button, and the seats, mirrors, A/C, etc. all are automatically where you want them.

 

Driver Information Center in dash

 

Personalization Instructional CD included, to lead you through all the many amenities

 

Voice recognition system, which allows for hands-free operation of navigation, phone, audio system, climate controls, windows, OnStar, and memory features. Merely touch the talk symbol on the steering wheel, release it when you hear the beep, then merely speak your commands! This is great fun to play with! It does not always recognize 100% of my Texan enunciation, but a great feature!

 

It comes with the books, manuals, and service records, and smells nice inside. I don't take it out if there is any rain in the area, and I have never parked it outside overnight.

 

The car had two previous owners, but before buying, I personally did a thorough inspection and road test of the car, and we would not have bought it if we had had any concerns whatsoever with the condition of the car, or the treatment by previous owner.

 

If you happen to be a vereran drag racing fan, you may recognize Eddie and Ercie Hill as the only team to have ever won the Top Fuel Championship on land AND water, and, if not, you can Google "Eddie and Ercie Hill", or "Eddie FourFather Hill", for our credentials.

 

Ercie and I will be happy to include an autographed die cast replica of our top fuel car, and an autographed diecast replica of our dragster transporter eighteen-wheeler.

The car has 83,640 miles on it, and we are offering it for sale at $19,980. That is over $57,000 off of the new price, and is an awful lot of performance, comfort, luxury, and exclusivity for the money!

 

 

Thanks for looking,

 

Regards,

Eddie FourFather Hill
