    I hope that this grill is just a disguise and that we will have something similar to V2 grill

    Re: Another article on the next V

    that's not going to be the grille they use on production V's ... i'd almost guarantee it's a mesh similar to what we've seen before (maybe even the same style used on the elmiraj)

    Cool, hopefully we can afford it. I'm thinking low to mid 80's in price, just a guess though !!

    Yeah, it looks fake. Why mess with success unless more cooling is needed as with the Z/28 with the flow-through bow tie? I need a smaller car because of the stupid underground parking garage that I have to deal with. As long as the ATS-V really exists, and has a proper LS derivative and manual transmission, I'm in. I still love my 2009 and have over 90,000 miles. It always looks and drives like new.

    I dont mind it either. But there is no way they would have a production grill on it yet.

    Those are some old pics. Especially since the Z06 has been revealed and I stood next to it at Sebring.

    The grill looks like the cow-catcher from Mad Max's truck! With another 6.2, SC and more HP, will the mileage be even worse????? Why not just a smaller V-8 with twin turbos?

    No, mileage won't be even worse. The new car weighs less, the new engine has direct injection and cylinder deactivation and a smaller-displacement faster-spinning blower, and the transmission(s) will have more gears.

    GM doesn't have a smaller V8 with twin turbos.

    sorry but the ATS-V is going to have a twin turbo V6 . Their will however also be an ATS-V+ with a V8 and supposedly over 600 hp .
