Last week, General Motors released a video of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 lapping the legendary Nürburgring in under eight minutes. But the range-topping pony car isn’t the only thing that has been keeping The General’s engineers occupied, as they have been just as committed to their upcoming BMW 3-Series fighter, the Cadillac ATS.
The video below is not another spy video. It’s a behind-the-scenes look of the testing and fine-tuning gone into the upcoming sport sedan, one that GM North American President Mark Reuss thinks is the “most important car Cadillac has ever done.”
Watching the video gives us a clear look at a few key features. In one shot, we see a driver wrangling a steering wheel equipped with paddle shifters. In another, we see a stick shift, and another shows an all-new interior. And finally, we get a very clean impression of the car’s aggressive exhaust note as it runs through The Green Hell, though a little different than what we’ve heard previously — but that could just be from lesser sound quality. To us, it sounds like a stout V6, but does anybody want to have a guess as to what sort of engine is laying down such a soundtrack?
