Cadillac tells us that nearly every body panel is unique to the ATS-V. Fenders and rocker panels are wider, the hood is vented, and the front and rear fascia have been sharpened for better aerodynamics and breathing.
That power reaches the rear wheels via a standard six-speed manual transmission that features Active Rev Match and no-lift shifting. Helping the Coupe to get off of the line is standard launch control.
Cadillac boasts about the twin-turbo V6's low-volume charge-air cooling system, a water-to-air intercooler that reduces turbo lag by cutting down on much of the ducting and pipes of a traditional air-to-air intercooler.
