Owners of the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V living in Europe do not have access to as many local aftermarket tuners as owners who reside here in the ‘States. One strong option they do have, though, is a company known as Geiger Cars based in Germany.
The company has created the ATS-V Black Line, which flaunts the brand’s offerings, including a performance package, a set of OZ wheels with sticky tires, and a set of stiffer springs.
With a cost of €7,990 ($8,973 USD), the performance package is comprised of an ECU remap for the 3.6 LF4 twin-turbo V6 and a valve-controlled sports exhaust system complete with an X-pipe, stainless-steel cat-back, and 4.33-inch tailpipes. These changes yield a gain of 53 horsepower and 41 lb-ft of torque for a total output of 508 horsepower and 486 lb-ft of torque. No word yet on how this affects 0-to-60 times or the like, but Geiger did say that the ATS-V’s top speed has increased to 194 mph, nearly 10 mph faster than the factory limit.
The set of 19-inch OZ Leggier alloy wheels have a price tag of €3,990 ($,480 USD) and come wrapped in 255/30ZR19 and 275/30ZR19 tires in the front and rear, respectively. They look devilishly handsome on the ATS-V, especially when combined with Geiger’s drop springs, which lower the car 0.98 inches and cost€1,090 ($1,224 USD).
Good looks, and a decent bit of added performance; Geiger Cars seems like a sound choice for anyone looking to get more from his or her ATS-V.
