Cadillac teaser shows ATS-V Coupe flat-out to 138 mph [Video]
Cadillac has released a teaser video showing a preproduction 2016 ATS-V Coupe in a flat-out acceleration and braking test.
The company has not officially announced performance figures for its forthcoming sports coupe. With a live speed display, the video provides the first hint at a zero-to-60 mph sprint in less than four seconds -- on par with its German rival, the BMW M4.If the speed readings are accurate, the ATS-V Coupe hits 100 mph in less than nine seconds and keeps pushing up to 138 mph in 15 seconds. When the test driver then slams on the brakes, the car drops back down to zero in four seconds, completing the full test in less than 19 seconds.Cadillac's latest performance coupe is rumored to be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine with at least 425 horsepower, sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.Full details will be revealed tomorrow at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
