2016 Cadillac ATS-V, CTS-V: European Premiere At The 2015 Geneva Motor Show

European Premiere of Cadillac ATS-V and CTS-V Geneva Motor Show 2015

At the Geneva Motor Show Cadillac was unveiling two European premieres: the first-ever ATS-V offered in sedan and coupe forms as well as the third generation CTS-V, the most powerful model in the brand's 112-year history. These high performance additions make the Cadillac range the most exciting and relevant to date. At the launch in Geneva, Cadillac announced the prices of the ATS-V: when it arrives in Europe in fall the Sedan will be priced from € 74.900* and the Coupe from € 77.500 (prices in Germany).

Johan de Nysschen, President, Cadillac and Uwe Ellinghaus, Chief Marketing Officer, Cadillac present the new performance cars for the first time to a European audience at the Cadillac press conference during the Geneva Motorshow 2015. They also talk about the new brand claim, Dare Greatly, and the future product offensive of Cadillac.

ATS-V delivers track-capable driving experience
The ATS-V is the first Cadillac to feature a twin-turbo engine and with more than 450 PS and over 600 Nm on tap it can not only hit 100 km/h in close to 4 seconds, it will reach a top speed of 299 km/h; giving it more than enough power to take the game to its established European rivals.

640+ PS CTS-V to arrive in early 2016
The ATS-V's big brother, the CTS-V, will arrive on European shores in early 2016. The CTS-V pushes Cadillac's V brand into a new stratosphere of performance and is the product of more than a decade of V-Series production models and the CTS racing program experience. A new supercharged 6.2L V8 engine endows the CTS-V with over 640 PS and more than 850 Nm of torque, enough to see it pass the 100 km/h mark in under 4 seconds before closing in on an estimated top speed of 320 km/h. The car's performance statistics might read like that of a supercar but it also features direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and is mated to an eight speed automatic gearbox with world-class shift-response times rivaling the performance of dual-clutch/semi-automatic transmissions but offering superior refinement.
