This weekend I captured a pic of this 2013 ATS in Opulent Blue with Ebony Leather parked on the street in Pittsburgh as I walked along--this was the first ATS I've seen in-person and it was gorgeous!!! Here's a pic taken with my phone (sorry but it was so bright I could hardly tell what the image was):

Did you notice what type of plates were on it? Manufacturer? Dealer?

Not for sale. Either mfg or test only...

The car had regular Michigan plates and it appeared to have the regular CTS style wheels--but being the first ATS I have seen, I was struck by how "correct" the proportions on this car look--it is a great styling achievement for Ed Welburn and staff! Here's another image (sorry it's not the best either--it was a very bright, sunny day, but I was trying to get pics to share):

If I get an ATS, that's the color.

I really like the blue, I would prefer a little darker but it still looks damn good

Larger blind spots can deter some buyers.

Hmmmmm, no markings on the trunck lid to tell what model it is.

Single exhaust pipe means that's base model, has the 2.5-liter four cyl.

Maybe they should put 2.5 on the trunk lid........

No fog lamps either . . . no sunroof . . . apparently a "strippo" model--probably a test mule of some sort!

That Blue Topaz looks awesome on the ATS!

Perhaps it is the quality of the pics, or the bright sunny day, but this doesn't look like opulent blue on the CTS and the Cadillac website. Looks a little darker, and more appealing.

Blue looks like the new silver. Hope they make one in a darker blue though.

Not crazy about the ATS, but I think that particular blue is absolutely stunning.

Hi everyone!

I just took delivery of my opulent blue ATS on Saturday and thought I'd upload a picture. I ordered it two months ago and had been desperately waiting for delivery, but I must admit that it was well worth the wait. It's a fabulous car.

I need to test drive it for you to make sure every thing is tight and secure.. Just have it for a couple hours.. That is the color I like the best..
