Cadillac has started taking orders for the ATS-V and CTS-V in Europe and for the high-performance vehicles buyers will have to pay 74,900 euros and 98,500 euros respectively in Germany. The Cadillac CTS-V is the most powerful vehicle in the brand’s history.

The model is also bringing the Brembo braking system, the carbon fiber hood, 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, matte finish carbon fiber trim, sueded microfiber accents and more.
