Top 10 Most Powerful Sedans

Top 10 Most Powerful Sedans

8. Cadillac CTS-V - 556 HP

Now if you’re looking for pure performance with four doors without spending six figures, the Cadillac CTS-V is for you. With a 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine underneath the bulging hood, the CTS-V is good for 556 hp and 551 lb-ft of torque, but rockets to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. It’s also the cheapest sedan on our list by far, priced from $65,825. Expect 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway while you romp away with this luxurious American performance sedan.

    You forgot the Tesla P85+

  • Honest Abe

    The P85+ is only 416 hp… nowhere near these cars.

  • crackdealer

    It shouldn’t be about horsepower, but about performance. The p85+ goes 0-60 in 4.4 seconds. It deserves a spot over there.

  • mortisier

    The P85D released today does it in 3.2.

  • Kelly

    That is the ugliest car I have ever seen…

  • Rickers

    Which car?

  • Jess

    Australia’s HSV VF GTS makes 577hp.

  • Godzilla

    Where’s the NISSAN GTR? The GTR will smoke all these V8 & V12 and it is only a V6 with less price or maybe because it is Asian? What the heck.

  • Charleston Silverman

    The GTR only has 545hp, it’s not a sedan and it’s not a luxury car so it would not be in this article regardless of how fast of a Ricer it is it is, the article is for the “Most ‘Powerful’ Sedans”.

  • Godzilla

    GTR 0-60 MPH in 2.7 seconds

  • Guest

    The GTR only has 545hp, it’s not a sedan and it’s not a luxury car so it would not be in this article regardless of how fast of a Ricer it is it is, read the headline.

  • crackdealer

    I think you’re misunderstanding the term “ricer”. Ricer is someone who tries to make their car look like it is fast, but in reality is just adding a bunch of stuff on the car to fool the unsuspecting commoner. Ricer does not mean asian automaker car.

  • Danielus

    A man must be bonkers to pay that much for the ugly panamera when you can get the S63 for much less

  • Rickers

    I used to think that, but the Panamera has grown on me. Also, it’s drives like a sports car… the S-Class most certainly does not.

  • Cornholio

    God I fucking hate having to click through a slideshow. Closing the window.

  • No One

    Comparing random packages makes no result and sense. Useless article! In real world Porsche Panamera is much slower than Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and BMW F10 M5. Also if the Mercedes-Benz reviewed here as 577hp then don’t review BMW as 552. Because Benz are standard 550 and S-Line is 577. BMW competition package is 576hp. Another major wrong made here is all these cars are not sedans. BMW M6 GranCoupe, Audi S7 are not sedans. These days 4-door cars is not 100% considered as sedans. It has some particular characteristics. And finally powerful in automobile is not only considered with BHP but with the overall engine performance. In that case at current, world’s most powerful sedan is the BMW F10 M5 competition package compare to its engine capacity, horsepower, weight and top speed.

  • crackdealer

    The list was making sense until numbers 3, 2, and 1. 0-60 and 0-100 is what really determines a sports car’s value when it is mixed in with luxury and sedans, because who are we kidding, most of the people that buy these either tour around long strips of road, or live in the city.

    Horsepower just determines what the engine is capable of, but the rest of the car is what determines how much of that engine is actually utilized at the wheel.

  • Da_Neutral_Observer

    These sedans are ranked according to POWER, not SPEED as the title of the article implies. 3, 2 and 1 would have been faster were it not for the additional weight of such pampering luxury.

    As the circumstances surrounding Paul Walker’s death instructs us, POWER output is actually highly important and relevant information, regardless of speed.

  • Gammera

    Time to update this list with Dodge at number 1 position with the 2015 Hellcat Charger, 707 HP 650 lbft and around $60,000

  • mortisier

    Looks like the new leader is electric! Tesla Model SP85D 0-60 3.2. Putting the end to the gas era on the manufacturers 3rd attempt.

  • Nash

    guys and gals, its not just about straight line power and speed its about handling! i dont anything comes close to Audi and Mercedes in this instance! and bear in mind we are talking about full on family sedan! check out the Audi and Mercedes wagons! something out of this world!!!

  • Mark

    Why does every car reviewer forget about Australia’s preformence brand HSV, which stands for Holden Special Vehicles. Even though it’s flagship GTS model is very similar to the Cadillac CTS-V it is still a sedan, goes very fast and deserves to be on this list. Even their Wagon model called the Tourer R8 LSA is a rocket, but still isn’t apart of most ‘fastest Wagon’ top 10’s. Reviews need to stop forgetting about other car manufacturers that don’t ship globally.
