Cadillac has just dropped the first official teaser video of the upcoming 2016 Cadillac ATS-V Coupe ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2014 next week!
While the video doesn’t reveal any styling details about the car, it does show it’s more than capable of performing an impressive burnout while previewing the car’s twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre V6 engine. Interestingly, this teaser video makes it seem apparent that the Cadillac ATS-V Coupe will be revealed before the ATS-V sedan indicating that the American firm is very keen to reveal its BMW M4 Coupe rival as soon as possible.
The aforementioned 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 will deliver around 425 hp which is right in-line with the M4 Coupe. Mated to this engine is expected to be a seven-speed manual transmission available as an option or alternatively, an eight-speed automatic transmission offered as standard. Further down the road, a brand new dual-clutch transmission could arrive early next year.
Recently, spy shots emerged of an ATS-V Coupe prototype spied completely undisguised during its official photoshoot. The pictures revealed that from a styling perspective, it is significantly more aggressive and bold than typical ATS models. What this means is that it features a revised front grille and bumper as well as a carbon fibre front splitter. Elsewhere, a new bonnet with a subtle power dome has been added alongside air extractors. From the side, the car is adorned with new sports wheels and beefed up brakes which appear to be carbon ceramic units. At the rear, a prominent bootlid lip spoiler is present alongside quad tailpipes.
