Cadillac ATS-V to get 410 HP image

The North American based automaker Cadillac is planning to introduce a hot version of the ATS-V, which is rumored to hit the market with 410 HP.

The 2014 Cadillac ATS-V is getting ready to hit the market over the following months as a direct competitor to the BMW M3, to the Audi RS4 and to the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, but unlike its main German rivals, the North American vehicle will be less powerful. Rumors are saying that the upcoming Cadillac ATS-V will get, besides a new engine, an aggressive body kit, with different front and rear bumpers, with a four tailpipe exhaust system, a new front grille, upgraded braking system and sportier suspension.

The Cadillac ATS-V will be powered by an engine, which is producing a total output of 410 HP (305 kW) and 500 Nm of torque in the XTS VSport, and 420 HP (313 kW) and 583 Nm of torque (430 lb-ft) in the CTS VSport. The most powerful engine found on the ATS currently is the 321 HP (239 kW) and 371 Nm of torque (274 lb-ft). Additional details on the 2014 Cadillac ATS-V remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced over the following months, close to its launch.
