Cadillac ATS-V Revealed

3.6L twin-turbo V6. 450 horsepower. 6-speed manual. What more do you need to know?

With only 3600 lbs to move, the ATS-V is slightly heavier than the BMW M4, but packs more horses and more torque (445 lb-ft versus 406 for the Bimmer). A 6-speed manual is available, and presumably, the 8-speed automatic will be an option as well. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and a locking diff are also standard. It also has titanium connecting rods, just like an Acura NSX.

    Locking diff? As in, those Eaton automatic locking diffs they use on trucks? Strange choice for a sporty car, but certainly preferable to a simulated limited-slip.

    The blurb doesn't say if it's front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. If it's RWD, it might be a hoot to drive, sort of like a cushy, overpriced Camaro. Something about this screams "Holden", but I'm not sure what. It's more like a 21st century Firebird with an origami hood and grille, with the rest of it copied and pasted from a 2012 Honda Civic.

  • Theflyersfan I guess I should have kept my first ever car which was also a 1987 Nissan. Probably could have sold it for $50,000 by now if I was living in this fantasy world where used up 37 year old Nissans sell for the same price as a new Versa. I wish a link was here so all of us can check out this treasure among junk 200SX. The only way this car is even remotely worth that kind of money is if there are illicit substances hidden somewhere in the frame that, as part of the sale, you have to drive across the border and "make a delivery." Otherwise, get that thing off of my lawn.
