    We'll if this m4 is supposed to be setting standards and BMW gets all the rave reviews they managed it with a V6. No I have not owned a CTS V but I own an ATS and between that, driving the v8 cam ark and some research and reviews I came to an educated guess that a twin turbo v6 ATS is far from "slow"

    Isn't that car a special edition of the regular AMG. I would consider that an equivalent to the rumored ATS V+... And yes in that cAse if they want to compete you have to throw a supercharged v8 in there.

    Ehh, I would call the 507 an ATS-V ++
    The AMG performance pack C63 adds ~ 30HP and some SLS parts with an increased top speed limiter

    The black edition was of course the race prepped version.

    The 507 uses Black edition parts in a more streetable car.

    GM could make a 507 competitor out of an LT1 with a hot cam and tweaking, but by the time they're ready to introduce such they'll have a new powertrain to deal with.

    Let's not forget that as of right now, BMW is the only one who has abandoned the almighty v8 in this segment.

    Yup, and let's not forget about the RCF, with it's tweaked 480HP 5.0L V8.

    If you go to the Hennessey site you will find a slot for the ATS-V and mention of mods to come for the TTV6. Do those folks have advance knowledge? If so that moves me even closer to a 2015 Z51 C7.

    They're just mentioning the common theory they've read elsewhere - GM isn't sharing any details with anyone. Even a lot of tier 1 suppliers are in the dark.

    I love that there's no news. Means it's going to be better than we had hoped ... even if it is going to be a TTV6.

    Let's go with a one cylinder with 6 turbos. Can you image the fabulous EPA numbers and crappy sound? BMW crowd would love it.

    Don't laugh. We're getting closer (electric motors will become more common for massive torque fill to compensate for smaller displacements)

    Not everyone lives on the internet. Can't blame him - though I'm tempted to suggest going back to sleep till the next gen comes out!

    Here is something new to chew on:

    "Asked whether Cadillac was considering a sharper, even more aggressive variation of the ATS-V in the mold of the Mercedes-AMG Black Series models, chief engineer David Leone had this to say: “We might have something down the road that is a little bit more aggressive.” Another source said that such a model could come to market by 2017"

    I would be sold on an LT1 in the ATS-V. Something about that V8. I hope it happens. Please. Then I wouldn't have to spend so much money on the CTSV.

    Re: ATS-V = V6TT, ATS-V Special Edition = V8 per Motor Trend Confirmed

    Maybe a bi-turbo LT1? 600 hp?

    I could see it.
