Cadillac ATS-V.R racer revealed

Cadillac has previewed the ATS-V.R Coupe ahead of its competition debut in 2015. Built to comply with GT3 regulations, the new contender will be eligible for numerous championships such as the Blancpain Endurance Series, Pirelli World Challenge and ADAC GT Masters.

Power comes from an all-aluminium twin-turbo 3.6 litre V6 engine which develops around 600 horsepower (roughly 450 kW) with 705 Nm (520 lb/ft) of torque. That output is delivered to the rear wheels via an Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission.

Among the upgraded chassis components are Penske adjustable dampers, a ZF hydraulic power-assisted steering rack and 18” BBS wheels. The Brembo braking set-up meanwhile comprises six- and four-piston calipers for the front and rear discs respectively. It’s backed up by an adjustable Bosch anti-lock system.

Carbon fibre body panels help to keep the car’s dry weight down to 1,315 kg (2,900 lbs). Also fitted is a full aero kit that includes a front splitter, dive planes, extended side skirts, a diffuser and a huge rear wing.

The road-going ATS-V Coupe, which is due to be launched at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month, arrives in dealers next spring.
