Better watch out BMW, Detroit has a new fighter entering the ring and it's one of the scrappiest pieces of hardware to ever come out of Cadillac's production facilities. The ATS-V is powered by a 3.6L V6 that puts down 455-hp, 445 lb-ft of torque, and a mind-numbingly fast 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds. Top speed? Just a little under 190 mph.
Arriving next spring, the car will be available in two and four-door models and will come with a six speed manual or an eight-speed paddle shift transmission. It will also include Brembo brakes, the third-generation of their magnetic ride control, and an imposing stance with its wider front and rear footprint.
