Cadillac ATS-V Coupe
Cadillac ATS-V Coupe
Cadillac introduced the 2016 ATS-V, expanding the acclaimed ATS product range and elevating the brand's elite high-performance V-Series to its next generation.
Since its inception in 2004, Cadillac's V-Series has driven remarkable power and performance capability into the brand's growing luxury car range. Building on the strengths of the award-winning ATS product line, the V-Series adds impressive track capability to what was already the lightest and most agile-driving car in the luxury compact class. The result is a dual-purpose luxury performer - a car with true track capability right from the factory that is also a sophisticated luxury car on the road
Twin Turbo Power
The segments highest output six-cylinder!Powered by the first-ever twin-turbocharged engine, rated at 455 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque, and enables 0-60 performance in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of more than 185 mph. It is backed by a six-speed manual - with Active Rev Match, no-lift shifting and launch control - or a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission featuring launch control and Performance Algorithm Shift.
Responsive and Agile
Confident Luxury Performance!
Performance Data Recorder
A Performance Data Recorder onboard the ATS-V allows drivers to record high-definition video, with data overlays, of their driving experiences on and off the track, enabling sharing on social media
Twin Turbo 3.6L V-6
Designed to make power faster and sustain it longerWith a more powerful iteration of Cadillac's Twin Turbo 3.6L V-6, the ATS-V represents the first twin-turbo powertrain in the history of the V-Series lineup. Exclusive features for the ATS-V version of the Twin Turbo are designed to make power faster and sustain it longer
Turbochargers with low-inertia titanium-aluminide turbines and vacuum-actuated wastegates for more responsive torque production Compressors matched for peak efficiency at peak power levels, for optimal track performance Patent-pending low-volume charge-cooling system that optimizes packaging efficiency and maximizes boost pressure Lightweight titanium connecting rods that reduce inertia of the rotating assembly, complementing the quick-spooling turbochargers
Track-honed Driving Experience
Greater Body Motion Control
The ATS-V feels like it was machined from billet steel. Along with supporting the higher performance capability of the car, the enhanced structure conveys confidence to the driver through a greater feeling of solidity and sharper, more precise responsiveness.With the stronger body structure - and more than a decade of V-Series production models and the CTS-V racing program experience under their belts - engineers tuned the ATS-V to deliver greater body motion control for a more agile feel, while maintaining excellent ride quality.
The result is class-leading capability on the highway or track, balanced with luxury and refinement. In fact, the car is ready for the track right off the showroom floor, with no special modifications required.
Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires
Wider front and rear footprints that enhance grip
A revised multi-link double-pivot MacPherson-strut front suspension delivers a quicker response and increased lateral control, incorporating new ride and handling links, where traditional elastomeric bushings are replaced with zero-compliance cross-axis ball joints, higher-rate springs and a stiffer stabilizer bar - for 50 percent greater roll stiffness The ZF Steering Systems Servotronic II variable-ratio electric power steering gear, with increased system stiffness offering an improved feeling of precision and greater driver feedback Cadillac's five-link rear suspension features reduced roll center migration, stronger lateral control and effective anti-squat geometry, complementing the front suspension with greater body motion control. Contributing components include stiffer bushings, new cradle mounts, higher-rate springs and a stiffer stabilizer bar A standard electronic limited-slip differential supports optimal traction and enables maximum corner exit acceleration Larger prop shafts and greater half-shaft asymmetry (stiffer driver's side shaft) mitigate power hop during acceleration A Brembo high-performance brake system provides durability, consistency and the capability for track-day performance. The system includes 14.5-inch-diameter (370 mm) front rotors with staggered six-piston calipers and 13.3-inch-diamter (339 mm) rear rotors with four-piston calipers.
Magnetic Ride Control
- The ATS-V also features third-generation Magnetic Ride Control and Performance Traction Management. Five driver-selectable settings include the segment's only competition-level settings for stability and traction control.
- Magnetic Ride Control "reads" the road a thousand times per second, sending data to magneto-rheological fluid-filled dampers that can independently control the damping characteristics of all four dampers. Third-generation improvements enable 40-percent faster damping response. In fact, at 60 mph, the third-generation magnetic ride control system calculates the optimal damping force for every inch of the road.
Design elements with a purposeAlmost every exterior panel on the ATS-V is unique, from the fascias and fenders, to the hood, rear spoiler and rocker moldings - and every one was designed to support the car's capability. All of the design elements have a purpose, they contribute to lift reduction, enhanced cooling, reduced mass or all of the above.
A definition - a small, usually two seat, two door car designed for spirited performance and nimble handling. Sports carz may be spartan or luxurious but high maneuverability and minimum weight are a prerequisite.
A definition - an expensive high end sports car, specifically a very expensive, fast or powerful car. Generally it must be very fast, with sporting handling to match, it should be sleek and eye-catching and its price should be one in a rarefied atmosphere of its own.
A definition - a design concept car developed with ultra-light construction, aerodynamic styling using advanced composite materials, low-drag design, and can incorporate hybrid drives. Hypercarz can also include limited production specials from elite automakers, that have massive power and performance, as well as concept models that appeal to a variety of auto enthusiasts
