In addition to the Cadillac ATS-V Coupe that you already saw, Cadillac is launching a sedan version of the ATS-V.

The 3.6L twin-turbo V6 will make 455 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, backed by either a Tremec 6060 6-speed manual or GM’s new 8-speed automatic. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, magnetic shock absorbers and a limited slip differential are all standard, as well as Recaro seats. A carbon fiber hood is optional.

    As the owner of a '00 Bonneville SSEi, the hell with you all.

      I wonder if I could swap that SSEi motor into my '03 LeSabre and make it the Buick from Hell.

    1. How fast will it go around the Nürburg-Ring? 2. How long can it do powerslides? My two questions.

      1. Quicker than the old V most likely 2. Until you lift or blow the rear tires

  • Dave M. IMO this was the last of the solidly built MBs. Yes, they had the environmentally friendly disintegrating wiring harness, but besides that the mechanicals are pretty solid. I just bought my "forever" car (last new daily driver that'll ease me into retirement), but a 2015-16 E Class sedan is on my bucket list for future purchase. Beautiful design....
  • Rochester After years of self-driving being in the news, I still don't understand the psychology behind it. Not only don't I want this, but I find the idea absurd.
  • Douglas This timeframe of Mercedes has the self-disintegrating engine wiring harness. Not just the W124, but all of them from the early 90's. Only way to properly fix it is to replace it, which I understand to be difficult to find a new one/do it/pay for. Maybe others have actual experience with doing so and can give better hope. On top of that, it's a NH car with "a little bit of rust", which means to about anyone else in the USA it is probably the rustiest W124 they have ever seen. This is probably a $3000 car on a good day.
  • Formula m How many Hyundai and Kia’s do not have the original engine block it left the factory with 10yrs prior?
  • 1995 SC I will say that year 29 has been a little spendy on my car (Motor Mounts, Injectors and a Supercharger Service since it had to come off for the injectors, ABS Pump and the tool to cycle the valves to bleed the system, Front Calipers, rear pinion seal, transmission service with a new pan that has a drain, a gaggle of capacitors to fix the ride control module and a replacement amplifier for the stereo. Still needs an exhaust manifold gasket. The front end got serviced in year 28. On the plus side blank cassettes are increasingly easy to find so I have a solid collection of 90 minute playlists.
