2015 Cadillac ATS-V to Have 450hp

We have gleamed our first sneak peak at the 2015 Cadillac ATS-V, something that is making a bit of a name for itself as an M3 killer. Well from the specs on this puppy it looks like it might actually have a chance at accomplishing that.

The new ATS-V will be loaded with a 3.6 liter twin turbo V6 pumping out 450hp and 445lb-ft of torque. That’s 25 more ponies than you get in the BMW M3 and almost 40 more lb-ft of torque.

So what else is cool about it? Well, it looks awesome for one thing. Oh, and it also comes available in a proper 6 speed manual transmission. Thank you Cadillac for finally putting a fun gearbox in a fun car! If you dont want that you can get the 8-speed flappy paddle thing – but come on, don’t be a loser.
