    Re: New Cadillac ATS Picture

    I don't believe the Mazda6 is being sold in America anymore after this or next year.

    The ATS will launch as a 2013 model with a four cylinder engine standard and a turbo four cylinder optional. As mentioned in the past - and from what I'm understanding - the ATS-V will be a twin turbo 3.0 liter V6 and not an LSx v8. It WILL be extremely competitive with the next TT v6 M3. As far as I know, I'm the only person on the internet so sure about this so I certainly could be wrong.

    If they don't offer a V8 ATS-V, they will alienate some buyers for sure. Stubborn enthusiasts like me who will stick with the Camaro/Mustang/Challenger. Of course, they will also be embraced by the M3/G37 crowd, so I guess it's a trade-off. The solution would be to offer both a V8 and FIV6.

    Top Gear is showing a M3 with 450 hp v8, granted it's a "special edition", but if Caddy is to do to the M3 with the ATSv what they did to the M5 with the CTSv, my vote is to just put the the CTSv engine in it. Does Caddy have a 450hp v6 in the works?

    No way the lsa goes in the atsv. Considering the lfx is now almost 320 hp it will be no problem wringing 450 twin turbo horsepower out of it. But it still won't sound or feel like a v8. Won't have the torque curve or sweet simplicity either.

    This is for the current M3. Right? The next M3 will be a twin turbo V6. GM is having enough trouble making the ATS capable of handling the 3.0 liter twin turbo V6. I really don't think a V8 is going into this car...
