Top Shelf: 2016 Cadillac ATS-V

Just before the Los Angeles Auto Show, Cadillac has introduced the brand new 2016 ATS-V. The ATS-V arrives next spring, powered by the first-ever twin-turbocharged engine in a V-Series. Rated at an estimated 455 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque, the engine 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. 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.

The aura of track-inspired precision carries over to the interior, where the design and relationship of key components are aimed squarely at performance-driving ergonomics. New 16-way-adjustable RECARO performance front seats with aggressive, adjustable bolsters help hold the driver and front passenger in place during cornering. They’ve also got a luxury-performance feel, trimmed in Mulan leather with sueded microfiber inserts and seat-backs. The rest of the interior features Cadillac’s handcrafted cut-and-sew elements, with decorative stitching and authentic materials, including carbon fiber. The ATS-V also features a unique version of the 5.7-inch, three-window instrument panel cluster display, with V-Series graphics and distinctive gauge readouts.
