It seems like, though, the M5 performance output is enhanced over the previous generation, the experience is more muted as a turbo-ed V8. The CTS-V seemed to drive with more drama from the point of view of the driver.

That drama would be more important to me than the M5's capacity for duality to "yacht" luxury ride. I'm not saying I'd kick the M5 out of bed for a Caddy today, but if I were GM, I'd work on making the next generation CTS-V sharper and harder. That would better differentiate it from the M5 and close the gap on the performance side.
