When Cadillac introduced 2016 ATS-V coupe, it promised that the twin-turbocharged V6 engine will develop more than 455 hp. But, it turned out that the manufacturer underestimated the power of the 3.0-liter unit, which has recently been certified by SAE as a car providing 464 hp.

Torque remains almost the same – 601 Nm, but the increase in capacity means that the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V became quicker when accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h by one tenth of a second. Initially it was 3.9 seconds, but actually turned out to be 3.8. In addition, the maximum speed of the coupe without an aero kit increased from 298 to 304 km / h.

This is obviously good news for fans in addition to what was already known. Both versions of the model are available with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or with 8-step “automatic” with an under steering switch.

ATS-V models also received a standard electronic limited-slip differential, high-performance Brembo brake system, third-generation Magnetic Ride Control and Performance Traction Management. Five different driving modes help drivers to adjust the maneuverability characteristics of the car.
