ATS-V Spied

The folks at C&D have spotted the ATS-V undergoing testing.

ATS-V SedanPeering through the heavy camo, you can make out the more aggressive grill and bumper treatments (likely mesh-filled as is the V-Series trademark). Out back are wider wheels and tires as well as quad exhausts.

We fully expect the ATS-V to carry a version of Cadillac’s new 3.6 DI twin-turbo engine. Given the ATS-V’s M3-beating mission, we’d expect the car to have this engine putting out north of the CTS VSport 420hp. 450 certainly sounds like a nice round number, doesn’t it?

We’d also expect both manual and automatic transmission options for what might be our new favorite Cadilac.
