The Cadillac ATS-V is pretty much the American equivalent of a BMW M3/4 and the Mercedes-AMG C63S. This is not only thanks to the horsepower output of the vehicle, it goes for the handling too.
Engineers have done their level best to make sure the Cadillac is the attractive alternative to the German cars, with the specs on hand and the looks of the car it can definitely compete.
On the pricing front, it wins hands down, though. In the video below you can see just how good the ATS-V is on the quarter mile against the BMW M3.The Cadillac looks to have gotten the better start, but the BMW does the good attempt at catching up.
It looks like it may have been the dial-in bracket race, though. While the Cadillac ATS-V does take the win on time over the BMW, the trap speeds look to tell the different tale.
The Cadillac traps at 119.82 mph and the BMW get 105.89 mph, this leads one to believe that the BMW might have tapped off the little before the end of the run so as not to break out of the 11.5-second bracket. And even if this is the case, the win on the day went to the ATS-V and that’s what counts.
So you can save heaps of money and have the car capable of beating the BMW benchmarkers, but if you buy the Cadillac ATS-V just to be different, that saving can go into performance upgrades that will definitely see the BMWs trailing. That’s what we would do.
