A few days ago, we helped put your curiosity to rest by reporting on the leaked details of the Cadillac ATS-V, set to officially debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The lithe performance car will feature the very same 3.6 liter twin-turbo LF3 V6 as the CTS, and XTS Vsport. Horsepower is set at 450 steeds, with 445 lb-ft of torque.
But in assuaging your curiosity, we may have inadvertently whetted your appetites.
To rectify the situation, here is a brief video clip – directly from Cadillac – which give us our first taste of the ATS-V’s very palatable exhaust note. Gear changes in this car sound nice and crisp from the audio, showing off the car’s automated powershift feature – available with both the 6-speed manual, and the 8-speed auto.
But that takes a back seat to that torrential flurry of sound emanating from the Cadillac ATS-V’s quadruple exhaust tips. The 3.6 liter LF3 V6 in this car gains about 30 horses from the iteration found in the CTS, and it has a mighty soundtrack to match.
