    Yeah, they're all for show to attract the kiddies, anyway.

    *#+"$&*, I wish Cadillac would provide some information soon about the ATS-V, such as engine and sale timeframe. I love my car but would like a slightly smaller replacement with newer technology. My parking garage at work is a pain with tight, minimal parking spaces. At least I'm fortunate enough to have a super sedan for a daily driver in the interim.

    amen.

    I fear however, we'll be hearing very little for the next 4-5 months sans increasingly less camouflaged test cars and the same 'confirmations' on power train details.

    I'm trying to keep my mind busy parting out the V and getting that sold as well as scrounging every last penny I can for as large a down-payment as possible.

    We heard NOTHING about the V2 before it came out. There were rumors about LS7s and that was it. Vs are uber-secrative...

    BEarle, you are an angel of mercy!

    Those front calipers, I'm sorry to say,look like the same 4 pots all other ATS's wear. At least the rears look like they get alloy 4 pots as well though.

    That's not such a bad thing seeing as the brembos in the ATS are very good, I was just personally hoping for some 6 pot flash.

    It would be nice if Cadillac "leaked" some information about the ATS-V engine. Then a lot of us could make a decision about continuing our interest. For me I need to make one before the end of the year. You would think that development is pretty far along since they've done some winter testing and now track comparisons to refine the drivetrain. On the other hand, I may keep my great 2009 beyond expiration of its powertrain warranty, but that doesn't help Cadillac sales figures.

    Why would Cadillac want to give you a reason to move on? They'll keep leading you on with limitless possibility as long as possible.

    Because some enthusiasts won't put up with that and will pursue other possibilities. It's a new world for Cadillac and car guys have other options.

    This July 4th weekend would be a perfect time to introduce the ATS-V and showcase American pride in yet another way. What about it Cadillac?

    Cadillac's thinking may lead to a Frankfurt reveal to really stick it to the Europeans. That's in September. The last major US show of the 'year' is LA in November I believe.
