The Caddys don’t have home-field advantage here, but nevertheless, Europe should be ready for the V-Series’ invasion. The ATS-V is slated for a Summer 2015 introduction, while the CTS-V will arrive in early 2016. Challenging the Germans will be the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 in the ATS-V and supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8, making an estimated 455 hp and 649 hp respectively. Both super-saloons (and coupe in the ATS-V’s case) arrive with GM’s fabulous Magnetic Ride Control and multi-piston Brembo brakes for stopping duties.
Cadillac also invites fans to Geneva for a chance to meet DJ Antoine, jury member of the hugely popular “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” TV casting show. An ardent auto enthusiast, DJ Antoine has a long standing preference for Cadillacs, and will act as an ambassador for the brand during the show. Fans may also come to the Cadillac stand for a meet and greet.
The Geneva showing is the latest play in putting Germany on notice with what Cadillac is capable of doing, and to show it’s ready to stake its claim once again as “Standard of the World.” Stay tuned as we bring you the latest pieces of information from Geneva.
