With roots in the performance racing circuit, the 2016 ATS-V Sports Coupe is built to rule the left lane as easily as it rules the track. The minute you get onto the road, green lights start to feel more like starting lines. Add to that a range of refined interior features and sporty exterior lines, and you’ll find the edge of your seat never looked or felt so good.
V is in every strand of our DNA – strands that fuse a proven motorsport pedigree with pure engineering propensity. A perfect balance of the track-certified prowess and street-smart refinement. The proof, a razor-edged litmus test of the world’s most notoriously punishing tracks – just for starters. We then tuned it and released it to the civility of the street.
The heart of Cadillac ATS-V 2016 is the 3.6L 464 hp Twin Turbo engine
producing 603 Nm of class-leading torque. High-strength, light-weight
titanium connecting rods, low-inertia titanium-aluminide turbine wheels
with optimized compressors and a patented low-volume, charge-air cooler
create near immediate torque response and dramatically reduce
Breech the atmosphere of high performance in a mere 3.8 seconds. Combine the more than two dozen patents held on our powerful eight-speed automatic transmission with lightning-fast shifts and time decisively does fly.

BITE AS REFINED AS ITS BARK
To create a definitive performance vehicle, the truly talented were set loose. With a laser focus on the creation of a technologically aggressive and elegant machine, nothing was overlooked. The standard has been set, and it’s territory-marked.
The patented paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission provides
incredibly fast shift times and a shorter first-gear ratio for improved off-the-line acceleration.
Temperature control is a performance vehicle’s best friend. ATS-V channels air to crucial heat-dissipating systems. The patented low-charge air cooler drops turbo air temps to a significant 130 degrees. Electronically controlled rear differential and six water and oil coolers dramatically lower component stress during aggressive driving.
By optimizing traction control and transmission calibration, Launch Control truly lives up to its name. After reaching preferred RPM levels at a dead stop, the driver simply needs to release the brake. Acceleration is immediate and explosive.
Beneath the lightweight V-forged wheels lie massive best-in-class standard, race-inspired six-piston front, four-piston rear, fixed-caliper Brembo® brakes with vented rotors for incredible stopping power. Brake ducts cool the ferritic nitrocarburized (FNC) rotors – our patented rotor coating that inhibits corrosion while improving performance and appearance.
Specifically designed for the ATS-V performance sedan, 18" Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport summer-only tires1 with a progressive tread and tri-compound patch have a custom molded shapefor maximum grip, stopping power and high-speed control.
The class-exclusive V-tuned, temperature adapting Magnetic Ride Control suspension reads and reacts to the road up to 1,000 times per second — providing the precise amount of control for maximum performance and the smoothest ride in all conditions..
Limited slip is only as effective as the gearing. Electronically controlled torque management provides instantaneous traction to where it is needed, ensuring that every Nm of torque is at your disposal.
The ultimate control on any track. Cadillac ATS-V 2016 sedan is the first vehicle in its class to offer standard competition spec traction and stability controls. Five specifically tuned traction modes (Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 and Race) accommodate any driving conditions and preferences.
The technological command center has been intuitively designed, customized and integrated to give the driver unprecedented control. The ATS-V applies this next-generation technology to enhance performance, safety and entertainment.
Four distinct drive modes, (Tour, Sport, Track & Snow/Ice*), electronically calibrate a variety of performance features,
optimizing and customizingyour drive to suit conditions.
*Snow/Ice is automatic transmission only.
Great power comes with great comfort. The performance-focused cabin brings driver support and convenience to its pinnacle. Every aspect of stability, control and attention to detail has been taken to a magnified level of refinement.
THICK RIM STEERING WHEEL
The ergonomically contoured steering wheel provides comfort and control. Leather-wrapped or available sueded microfiber create a refined and sporty look and feel.
CARBON FIBER INTERIOR TRIM
An additional level of refinement is achieved with the use of exposed carbon fiber accents enhanced with a contrasting silver weave. It dramatically adds a sport-inspired atmosphere to the handcrafted cut-and-sewn interior.
RECARDO® PERFORMANCE SEATS
When pushing the envelope, being firmly in your seat is paramount.
Recardo front heated performance seating adjusts 16 ways for secure, confidence – inspiring support.
A well-tailored and cultivated experience through and through. Precise fit and finish of hand-selected leather accents, sueded microfiber, aluminum and carbon fiber all come together in perfect harmony.
RECONFIGURABLE INFORMATION CENTER
The integration of the driver information center into the instrument cluster gives the driver a myriad of performance info in an easily configurable, full-color display. The three-window design allows for multiple data arrays that work in conjunction with Cadillac CUE and the available Head-Up Display
This is where the line becomes blurred between its turbocharged genesis and athletically stoic street presence. Every design element serves a deliberate, functional and aesthetic purpose. Innovations in everything from aerodynamics to materials result in an intimidating sum of its parts, both on the street and at the starting line.
Every exterior design element is unique in its purpose – from the aero splitter and hood to the rear spoiler and diffuser. These elements are designed to not only be beautiful, but also support the car’s performance capabilities including aerodynamics, mass reduction and enhanced cooling.
Achieving a strong yet light architecture using ultra-high-strength steel, aluminum and other highly advanced materials directly affect performance both inside and out. Structural development resulted in enhanced integrity for superior control and a smooth drive
V-FORGED ALUMINUM WHEELS
Aluminum wheels bring low weight and high strength together in perfect
balance. Forged from billet, the process delivers on both performance
and design,while the true beauty is realized from the driver’s seat.
CARBON FIBER HOOD
Power-to-weight ratio is substantially improved with the selective and precise use of carbon fiber. A lighter hood is a major contributor to the ideally balanced weight ratio that a high-performance vehicle requires.
The functional splitter creates a dramatic improvement in aerodynamics by generating a massive influx of directed airflow resulting in reduced front end lift.
QUAD EXHAUST TIPS
One of the many signature features of the ATS-V luxury sports coupe is the quad exhaust. It integrates baffling for acoustic refinement at lower speeds while generating a visceral roar when opened up – amplifying the 3.6L Twin Turbo.
FUNCTIONAL AIR EXTRACTOR
The ATS-V’s dynamically styled air extractor provides improved airflow that reduces under hood pressure, drag and lift.
CARBON FIBER PACKAGE
An exposed weave carbon fiber adds even more dynamic form and function to an already fierce presence. Visible in the front splitter, hood extractor and rear diffuser, it is coupled with a more aggressive rocker extension and rear spoiler to significantly improve airflow and down-force. Carbon Fiber Package is available for ATS-V Sedan.
