The hot-to-trot Cadillac ATS-V first hit the scene for the 2016 model year, dropping in with both a four-door sedan and two-door coupe body style. Prior to its indirect replacement by the Cadillac CT4, the ATS-V offered sumptuous luxury matched with blistering speed and aggressive V-Series exterior styling. Now, there’s a brand-new example of this sporty compact up for sale at a dealer in Hawaii.
Outside, we find this 2018 Cadillac ATS-V coupe draped in Satin Steel Metallic paint, a new addition for the 2018 model year. All the standard V-Series aesthetic enhancements are present and accounted for, including the unique front and rear fascia, mesh grille, vented hood, rear spoiler, wider fenders, aero-optimized rocker moldings, and 18-inch wheels. Applied to the shapely two-door ATS, it’s a head-turning look, no doubt about it.
The interior of this Cadillac ATS-V is a nice place to be thanks to Jet Black leather seating with sueded microfiber inserts and seat backs. The front buckets get 18-way adjustability and performance-inspired lateral bolsters, while the tech lineup includes a 5.7-inch color driver information display, a head-up display, navigation, Rear Vision Camera, Front and Rear Park Assist, and Bluetooth wireless streaming.
Of course, this 2018 Cadillac ATS-V also has the right specs under the hood to fulfill the promises made by that aggressive styling, mounting a twin-turbocharged 3.6L V6 (production code LF4) spinning out 464 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. All that go is routed to the rear wheels by way of a six-speed manual transmission, a rare find these days, while Magnetic Ride Control and Brembo brakes with a Dark Gold finish keep it all under control.
Now, this 2018 Cadillac ATS-V is up for sale at Jim Falk Motors of Maui, and is listed for $68,870.
