There have been plenty of photos online that captured the camouflaged face of its next-generation CTS-V circulating for some time, but rarely do we see the imposing glare emanating from what is sure to be the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.
Both cars were caught testing together by Autoblog’s spy shooters, and though GM wrapped the two high-horsepower sedans in swirly vinyl camouflage, neither car’s nose is blocked by an exterior cover.
The two cars sport a clear family semblance. A sinister grin marks the super sedans’ lower fascia, with vertical slats appearing in both cars’ upper grilles. And while we still have to wait for official specs, we expect the new ATS-V to use a high-output version of GM’s LF3 twin-turbo V6 – an engine that’s good for 420-horsepower in the CTS Vsport – while the gen-III CTS-V will either introduce a twin-turbo V8 setup or continue the supercharged configuration of the outgoing model with a de-tuned version of the 2015 Z06 Corvette’s LT4 engine.
