    It would probably drive fine but really, it needs considerably more power than its competitors if it s going to draw off customers.. Just like the CTSV did.. 450-500 would be appropriate.

    Agreed, and sound the part like other V's. We don't need any piped in engine noise from the stereo.

    Top or bottom source? Not sure the Eurosnobs would go for it. But give me garlic and I would be happy to drive your Ferrari or Maserati.

    I have never understood automakers piping in exhaust sound. Maybe a Ferrari sounding exhaust for my ATS would change my mind.

    High-performance cars never had good enough sound insulation before. It's the convergence of desire for a real sports car in a luxury car body and soundproofing that's so good you can't hear the engine frequencies that say "sports car."

    I find it interesting because I personally prefer the mechanical sounds of the engine itself over the explosive sounds of the exhaust. A little induction whine isn't always a bad thing either

    This reminds me of one of those sound machines where you can choose a sound ... rain, crickets chirping ... now, V exhaust.

    I love the sound starting my car, especially in the underground garage where it resonates on nearby cars. That's what needs to continue.

    Do you think that the exhaust note of a higher performance version of the TTV6 can be tuned to sound like a V8, or will it sound like an insect no matter what is done? That exhaust tuning might bring in a few V8 guys to the ATS-V that otherwise would pass on it.

    I think Magnaflow makes some deep sounding mufflers that could bring it close. Wait to see what they come up with when the car is released.

    It'll never sound the same. But it can surely be given enough low frequency rumble and midrange bark and high end howl to clearly indicate machismo. Cadillac will err on the side of caution and deliver something serious but civilized, and the aftermarket will gladly add whatever degree of boisterousness you can stand.

    But if you're looking for this specific kind of sound, I don't see it happening:

    Now that sounds like a high performance car and not a beehive. We need that mill in the ATS-V (with a little torque bump, of course, and paired with the TR6070).

    But if the ATS-V is not available before 12/15/13, I'm going back to Corvettes (C7 TR6070) for a while. They are fantastic sports cars and closely related (where it counts) to the current Cadillac V's; it's all in the GM family.

    It will sound pretty close to this
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i01pg7E6OcU

    IMO, some good induction noise is nearly as good as the high-pitched exotic symphony that an LS puts out.

    But if the ATS-V is not available before 12/15,
    you mean 2015? I would expect the ATS-V to be avalible for order no later than the beginning of 2014, possibly even very late this year. The F80 M3 is planning a launch early next year similarly. 2015 is probably a year to look forward to a CTS-V but not an ATS-V.
