2016 Cadillac ATS-V leaves luxury rivals in dust - Detroit Free Press

The fast and luxurious ???? 2016 Cadillac ATS-V coupe continues Cadillac's assault on the BMW M Sport and Mercedes-Benz AMG high-performance brands. A sweet 464-horsepower twin turbocharged 3. 6-liter V6 engine, magnetic ride control, Brembo brakes, carbon fiber and plenty more goodies distinguish it from the regular ATS coupes, which top out at 321 horsepower. ATS-V coupe prices start at $62,665 for one with a six-speed manual transmission, rev matching and no-lift shift. An eight-speed automatic transmission costs $2,000. I tested a nicely equipped ATS-V with the manual transmission, Bose audio, navigation, touch screen, voice recognition, Bluetooth phone and audio compatibility, launch control, Michelin Pilot... Cadillac also builds an ATS-V sedan, which has more rear passenger space and performance and features essentially identical to those in the coupe. Prices start at $60,465. The ATS-V coupe competes with cars like the BMW M4, Audi RS 5, Lexus RC F and Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. The ATS-V stacks up with them well on paper and performs beautifully on the road. The adaptive suspension's sensors send instructions to magneto-rheological fluid in the ATS-V's shock absorbers fast enough to. Source: www.freep.com
