We got our first real glimpse at the Cadillac ATS-V Coupe when it was spotted during a photo shoot ahead of its Los Angeles Auto Show reveal later last month. However we didn’t get an official, Cadillac-confirmed glance at the all-new BMW M4 fighter until yesterday, when official images of the car hit the web.
We have to admit, the ATS-V looks more aggressive than we thought it would. The mean front fascia has a consistent snarl, and that gaping lower grille looks ready to swallow up anything with an AMG or M badge that gets in its way. The Coupe’s sleek body adopts the V’s more aggressive rocker panels and rear diffuser pretty well, and that vertical spoiler lets everyone in the vicinity of the car know it means business.
If you like the looks of the standard ATS Coupe, it’s hard not to like those of the V. We could see it being a little too sporty/youthful-looking for some Cadillac, but that’s the name of the sport-luxury game, with the next-generation CTS-V likely having styling that’s just as aggressive.
Vote below on whether you think the ATS-V is hot or not, and let us know what changes you would make to the car, if any, in the comments.
