    Cadillac ATS-V Forum Cadillac ATS-V vs. Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio vs. BMW M3 vs. Mercedes-AMG C63 S

    Compared to the scads of high-volume entry-level sports sedans-you know, the ones with the highly publicized lease deals-there are but a few, high-dollar, high-horsepower variants. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the BMW M3 Competition Package, the Cadillac ATS-V, and the Mercedes-AMG C63 S...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum The Cadillac ATS-V is America's BMW fighter

    For much of the past 30 years, the BMW M3 has been the gold standard for performance sports sedans and coupes. Countless newcomers have attempted to challenge the dominance of the Bimmer. Although a few have gotten close, none have been able to topple the king. The latest challenger to the...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum The Cadillac ATS-V Is an All-American Dream Car

    It's 6:30 on a Tuesday night in Soho, and I'm behind the wheel of a brand new Cadillac ATS-V. Why am I taking Cadillac's sports car through stop-and-go traffic on some of New York's oldest, roughest, and most unforgiving cobblestone streets? Because I'm searching for something, some kind of...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum Cadillac wants to teach you how to wrangle 600hp with a free 2-day driver training

    As automotive journalists, we're fortunate enough to drive high-performance vehicles in their natural environment. No, not sprinting between stoplights — on a racetrack. But we really shouldn't be the only ones with this opportunity. Knowing the limits and how to safely operate potent cars is...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum The 2017 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe is Two Doors Short of Perfect

    When I drove the Velocity Red Cadillac ATS-V Sedan in Detroit last fall, I was smitten. Detroiters who spotted the car as I plowed around downtown were smitten. Even my 94-year-old grandmother, a lapsed member of the Cadillac faithful and one of my first passengers, was smitten. When I drove...

    Instrumented Test Imagine ordering a ton of bricks. That's 400 red paving bricks weighing five pounds apiece. You know, the bricks that made Indianapolis famous. They're yours. Now, do you want your ton of bricks dumped on you all at once? Or would you rather have one brick handed to you at a...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum Cadillac's amazing ATS-V has tons of power, grip

    Cadillac calls its new 464-horsepower, track-ready two-door the ATS-V coupe. But forget the bland alphabet-soup nomenclature. This lusty machine is so good it could be badged "Coupe de Thrill." Cadillac's new luxury compact is a chiseled two-plus-two muscle car with razor-sharp throttle...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum 2016 Cadillac ATS-V First Test

    Beating the Germans is never easy ? just ask the French ? yet automaker after automaker sets its sights on what's become the holy grail of German sports cars: the BMW M3. Many have tried to unseat the king, but thus far the likes of Cadillac, Lexus, and Volvo have yet to definitively succeed...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is a new breed of American muscle car

    When we tested the compact-size Cadillac ATS in 2013, we gave it a thumbs up for its agile handling and fun-to-drive character. It reminded us of a previous-generation BMW 3 Series, the car that practically wrote the sports-sedan recipe book. Of course, it was just a matter of time before the...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum Cadillac ATS-V and the strange joys of engine noise

    Written by Dan Neil I am in search of a word. The car in question is the newly juiced Cadillac ATS-V Coupe, a performance version of GM's premium compact coupe (also sedan), around $70,000 with the good kit, etc. On an open track the car is an absolute polo pony, way more fun than the last...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum Cadillac Wants More Powerful ATS-V to Fight Mercedes' Black Series

    In a time when Germans - and by Germans we mean Mercedes-Benz and BMW - are avid for more power, the Americans incline to adopt the 'attack is the best defence' approach. Don't think what you just read is about political and diplomacy issues. No, because we don't do that at autoevolution. We're...

    Cadillac ATS-V Forum 2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe

    If you get hot and bothered for hot-rodded sedans and coupes, you probably know that Germans have long dominated that cutthroat scene. For years, the Audi RS/BMW M/Mercedes-AMG triumvirate has ruled the microcosm of grunty, mid-level luxury cars. But a funny thing happened when Cadillac's first...
