Please hurry and start production. I have to have this combination. I can't sleep at night.

Damn that's hot. I wish they would have brought a different ATS to Chicago. They had the same one at Detroit and Chicago, the Crystal Red one. But I LOVE that red interior. Crystal Red with Red interior would be sweet.

Nope. I'll take mine just like that. Black diamond w/red.

There was a crisis in my pants.

That front end pops with black and chrome! And I do love the red interior.

I can only imagine what a V is gonna look like.

:swoon:

I like it. Hard to see the body lines (I'm talking about the car, now, guys so stay with me here) in those pics in that color though.

Black diamond is a sweet color. Helps with minimizing the appearance of swirls. I would worry about the cost of repainting a bumper though. I bet it's hideously expensive.

Red Interior is baller.

Really I sat in one two weeks ago that was red. My initial reaction "Wow this doesn't look like a pile of shit as the Brown/Beige interior does."

ATS with a White Exterior and a Red interior is the way I'd roll (nod to classic Corvette colors too).

Nothing outrageous. It all depends on where you go, not necessarly what you have.

as for the combo... Black on Red is just fine and dandy for me. Personally I'm a fan of white on red. I almost bought a white on red E39.

I swear, the more pics I see of this thing the more I like it.

Looks very nice. I like the colors too.

There was also a BD CTS-V in attendance.... the more I stared at that color the more I fell in love. lol

All the shows I've gone to have all 3 iterations of V in BD...

I freaking missed mine. totally went over my head to think about checking for the auto show date in my area.

WOW! THAT looks NICE! This color combination is my favorite. I don't know what it is about the lighter colors. Maybe they show too much detail. But I REALLY like the ATS in black diamond. And what is that interior color? I think BMW calls it Saddle. My 335i was black/saddle.

Stingroo

No Sal, this isn't saddle, this is full on RED. My cell phone camera doesn't do it justice. Trust me.

Either way, I like it. The ATS looks awesome in black.

Hope the flake here is just as aggressive as the BD CTS-V. The red is nice. I want a really nice blue with a black interior, with either CF or the midnight Sapele if available.

I've noticed, the XTS doesn't have the black and red interior, as an option.

I'd rather Black Diamond/Ebony.

Me too, not liking the red interior at all. I'd even take the platinum over the red.

Be careful what you wish for. At the Denver show, they had a bunch of the cars with this horrid bass boat paint. I took pictures but they didn't come out.

Seeing it in Black Raven made me way too pumped for the car to come out. I love Black Raven Metallic. All the slickness of black without dealing with the upkeep of a black finish.

I saw two of the ATS at the New York Auto show last week. A silver one and a red one. Both were very attractive looking!

Thanks for posting the silver pictures, they really show the detail lines on the ATS.

They were letting people sit in it? Maybe I'll make a trip down...

I never liked this car until I saw these pictures....Silver is def the color to get with the car!

I was wondering the same thing. In Denver it was up on the platform and you couldn't get too close and couldn't see much of the interior. I tried taking pictures of the interior door trim pieces that I hadn't seen in pictures before (they had a design on them) but couldn't get them to come out.

Whenever I gaze out over a parking lot full of cars, I see silver after silver car ... I want to scream!

Again, it's a personal choice, I understand. Just give me ANYTHING but silver!

Stealth Gray is still my favorite color from all the cars I have owned.

I made the trip down yesterday. They had the red one up on the table, and it looked great. However the sliver one was not to be found, so unfortunately no ATS for one to sit in. I assume it was only made available for the day allotted to those with dealer passes. :(

I'm not. I miss my V. Selling it was among the dumbest things I have done in life.

I hate how other companies now use black diamond. Ive seen atleast 3 other brands using the same exact color at the chicago auto show back in Feb,but i sure do love the color on the Cadi's!
