Well.... my wife really needed a nicer car as hers was getting old and she has been a Cadillac girl since she had her 2001 Cadillac SLS in Obsession Red. So.... we found one a little newer in the color she likes. 🙂
This is the newest addition to the family... a 2016 ATS-V sedan. 🙂 Yes, another ATS-V.
This one is a little special though. It looks pretty unassuming doesn't it? Just your normal Cadillac if you didn't know any better. But if you thought you might like to have a little run against it, you had better come loaded for bear. This car was built to be the fastest ATS-V in the country, and at this point in time, it may be, but we don't know. The times below were done before the turbo's were replaced with a couple that should be good for 700-800 whp. The problem is, no one knows what the limit is on these engines because no one has taken one that far yet. As it sits right now, and running on E85, this car makes approximately 620 hp at the wheels... and that's 120 more than my car makes. The guy that owned it said he liked to mess with Hellcats and this is a V6. 🙂

Sounds like this car will be a good 1/2 and 1/4 mile car. 🙂 A car with the EXACT same mods (including the TurboBay turbo's) running on E70 just made this kind of power, so once the tune for the new turbo's goes in our car, this is what the power output will be. I talked to the guy, they had to tune it down on the street, it is breaking the tires loose at 100 mph. The bump dip in the curve is where they pull out power for the dyno in high gear, apparently the computer doesn't like something at that RPM range on the dyno.
It still handles like mine does, it had the same identical suspension and wheels and tires before I upgraded mine. Actually the tires on this car are the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires which
I'll be putting have on my car. I have new wheels ordered so she'll have the exact same wheel/tire setup in a few weeks.
Once I've had time to play with it, I'll post some more information. 🙂 In the meantime, here are some pictures I took with both (or all three at times) Caddy's.
Here's a link to a few more pictures. We will be getting the hood repainted since it got a little sandblasted making high speed runs in Florida. 🙂
