    I think for what it was the XLR was way too expensive the first time around. If they want to take business away from european roadsters they have to drop the price. Value luxury/performance is the niche cadillac must carve.

    The XLR-V was indeed way overrpriced. But they are a steal now on the second hand market.

    Something like that. Gizmo picked his up for less than $30k. I have seen a few other people post they got theirs around that price.

    Re: ATS-V wishlist??

    I find it hard to say it was overpriced, when it was significantly cheaper then its class leader, the SL. IMO, it was under spec'd, under qualified. I think the price point was where it needed to be. To me it doesnt feel any more expensive inside then the 2nd gen CTS and derivatives. It didnt feel special.

    Re: ATS-V wishlist??

    So.....back on topic.

    If I were to get an ATS-V, it would probably be a daily driver. That being said I would like to see 20/30 for fuel economy. I would be fine with a twin turbo V6. 6 speed manual with launch control, oil, trans, and diff cooler. I'd also like to see the 5 stability/traction control settings that the Corvette ZR1 and Camaro ZL1 have. CUE would also be a must have.

    Light Weight, Manual Trans, Smooth High Revving 470HP NA V8, Gigantic Brakes.
    Anything less and they should not even bother with a V model.
    I'm sure a V6TT would sell just fine (probably better) without a V badge on it.

    Re: ATS-V wishlist??

    Would the cooling package (at least for the transmission and differential) be preferred as standard equipment (think ZL1) or as an option for buyers who would track their vehicle on a regular basis? I would like to drive my ATS-V on a track, but it wouldn't be a dedicated track car. So I'm thinking manufacture these components to be track capable at least.

    Re: ATS-V wishlist??

    ^ I agree with that.
    The car should have availability of factory designed trans/diff/brake cooling for track use.
    It should be standard on a V, considering the price premium.
    If they are going to claim Nurburgring development then the car should be equipped to be able to run at least 3 consecutive 'ring laps without overheating it's fluids.
    Time wise, that is a good benchmark to assure survival of a typical track session.

    Re: ATS-V wishlist??

    I dont think all the coolers need to be standard. I think they should be part of a track package that includes Recaro's, track tires, a stiffer MRC setup, maybe stiffer sway bars, a brake upgrade if the standard ATS-V wont get the brake upgrade that was promised for the 2G CTS-V, more aggressive gearing, maybe even some Aero tweaks over the standard V, a more aggressive exhaust and intake for a slight power bump, and maybe some interior detailing. They could call it the MPG package...Milford Proving Grounds

    Outstanding!



    This whole conversation is talking about different versions (models?) of the ATS-V. I'm wondering if GM would even embark on such a thing. The more you guys talk about it, the more I like the idea.

    The lack of a diff cooler on the V is very frustrating. Especially since the ZL1 gets it. If its a warm day and you're really going at it, you will not be able to complete your sessions before overheating the diff...

    Re: ATS-V wishlist??

    The V is supposed to be the Track Package & it should have it all.

    Since the ATS is a lower priced car (even within Cadillac), these features can be included in an ATS-V and still keep it affordable, compared to past V models and the cars it competes with.
