Cadillac ATS-V Coupe Spotted At The Ring

Derek Kreindler
by Derek Kreindler has spied the all-new Cadillac ATS-V Coupe running the Nurburgring – and sporting a Michigan manufacturer tag.

Also spotted was a prototype CTS-V, which should indicate that Cadillac has not yet given up on the idea of beating the Germans on their own turf. As long as they can avoid a confusing re-brand at the hands of their new boss, they might have a fighting chance.

    Hmm,Some guy, not sure where you get your info. re.the BMW V8 being unreliable but it seems like you've been told a load of bollocks . Both My E39 and E60 have the V8, they both run as smooth as silk with NO reliability issues.

      The 4.4 in your e39 is a wonderful engine with the potential for catastrophic failure lurking in almost every subsystem. The engine series as a whole suffers in perception of early maintenance issues related to the Alusil, and the VANOS issues on the later versions lead to both clatter and smoke. Also, occasionally the chain guides just disintegrate. It certainly requires far more attention to maintenance than many other V8's. The one in your E60 is fine, as long as your car is '05 or newer (if not a little gutless for the specs.) The earlier ones had terrible reputations electronically, and the plastic around the engine was absolute shite for the first 2-3 years. And I don't care which one you're driving, any BMW V8 made after 97 has way too much shake and stutter at idle, at altitude. Smooth as silk my ass... :p But as for SomeGuy's comment, it doesn't matter if you could weld the hood shut on your Accord, or if you have to adjust the points every time you start your vintage British roadster - Preventative maintenance will make your ownership experience better (if not necessarily cheaper.)

    Oh goodie, another sub model we'll pretend is a standalone model and price at $90K. Can't wait to see that depreciation curve.
