Smile Spied - Cadillac ATS sedan (3-series fighter) during testing runs

Hope not a repost. From ATSforums



full gallery http://www.atsforums.com/forums/show...ual-Body-Shell

This is supposed to be the Caddy that takes the 3 series sedan and A4 sedan on directly. Rumors are theres even gong to be a ATS-V version to take on the M3 like the CTS-V competes with the M5. Also said to be coming in sedan, coupe, convertible, and station wagon forms.

Thing thing have a shot at taking on the upcoming F30 3er? CTS-V seemed to have gotten lots of good reviews so maybe they'll test this ATS on the ring also and actually make it a good drive.

I like what I see. N/A LS v8 for the ATS-V.

Is there something that I don't get? If the CTS-V competes against the m5 then the CTS competes against the regular 5 series. If that's the case there is no reason to buy a 5 series. I was thinking that it was CTS vs 3 series. A fully loaded cts is still cheaper then a 328-335.

Except that the regular cts is garbage. Have you driven one? It's not even in the same league. The V may well match up to an M5, but its little sibling is an entirely different (read: worse) animal.
