Apparently MotorTrend has seen the Cadillac ATS. Some features they described are as follows:

- thick, wedgy, "fast" c-pillar
- large sweeping rectangular headlamps
- wider, thinner grille
- long dash-to-axle relationship (stretched front-end)

Is this the replacement for the XLR? What is the price and engine, intro date, etc....

I will do a search and see!

Thanks for posting it here! I was looking at buying a XLR-V! But depend on what is in the search; I may abandon it or go through with it! I love the fastback design!

I found out that the ATS is position to fight the BMW 3 series! Oh well, I guess I going ahead and try to buy a XLR-V after all.

I seen the post at GMI and so far the car looks hot. The wheel clearance doesn't seem possible and we'll just see what it will really look like in reality.
But I am looking forward to it and I hope GM/Cadillac will get their organisation back on track in Europe before the launch of the ATS/AT1/new BLS (whatever it really will be)

Pick up one for me while you're at it. I'll mail you a check.

Well, the ATS should be arriving around the same time as the new 3er (give or take a year). The 3 series is supposed to be powered by 4 bangers (except the M, which will get an I-6). Given the approaching CAFE increases, we can probably expect the ATS to (mostly) get 4 cylinder power too. Should be an interesting comparison. Caddy really needs to keep the weight out of the ATS. This is one of the main concerns about the new 3er on the BMW boards given that most of the new BMW models have been longer, wider, heavier the last few cycles.
