One of the many benefits to living in southeast Michigan, besides being able to spy on Canada from the riverfront, are the random sightings of camouflaged pre-production vehicles of all types and makes on the road. And if onlookers are lucky and/or coordinated enough, they will capture a photo or a video and send it to an automotive media outlet. One reader of AutoWeek did just that, and we have reason to believe the vehicle being filmed is a Cadillac ATS-V.
The footage is both brief and blurry. But you can clearly make out that it’s a wrapped ATS, apparently rolling with a pair of exposed ATS models off-camera. What can we expect from this M3-slaying weapon? A twin-tubro V6 pumping out somewhere between 420-440 horsepower, an amazing power:weight ratio, the latest magnetic ride control system and beastly brakes, track-day driving settings, and more aggressive looks — most likely.
Anybody have a Nürburgring lap time prediction? We’re going with the low 7:40’s.
