The heart of ATS-V is the 3.6L 464 hp Twin Turbo producing 445 lb.-ft. of class-leading torque. High-strength, light-weight titanium connecting rods, low-inertia titanium-aluminide turbine wheels with optimized compressors and a patented low-volume, charge-air cooler create near immediate torque response and dramatically reduce get-up-and-gone-times.
A top speed that will fulfill even the most aggressive of driver’s needs requires more than an abundance of horsepower. It is achieved through specialized and finely tuned performance attributes all working in unison – aerodynamics, cooling systems and speed-rated tires.
Breech the atmosphere of high performance in a mere 3.8 seconds. Combine the more than two dozen patents held on our explosive eight-speed automatic transmission with lightning-fast shifts and time decisively does fly.
For those who demand control firmly planted in the palm of their hand, the standard 6-speed manual transmission delivers short, precise gear changing for a smooth and refined drive. The patented paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission provides incredibly fast shift times and a shorter first-gear ratio for improved off-the-line acceleration.
Power-to-weight ratio is substantially improved with the selective and precise use of carbon fiber. A lighter hood is a major contributor to the ideally balanced weight ratio that a high-performance vehicle requires.
Achieving a strong yet light architecture using ultra-high-strength steel, aluminum and other highly advanced materials directly affect performance both inside and out. Structural development resulted in enhanced integrity for superior control and a smooth drive.
The ergonomically contoured steering wheel provides comfort and control. Leather-wrapped or available sueded microfiber create a refined and sporty look and feel.
Record, share and analyze your track driving experiences with the available Performance Data Recorder. Capturing video, in-cabin audio and performance metrics including 0-to-60, lap times and g-force. With best-in-class integration and capability, PDR makes good drivers great, and great drivers unstoppable.
Change lanes with added confidence. As part of the available Driver Awareness Package, Side Blind Zone Alert warns if a vehicle enters your blind spot. An amber icon in the exterior mirror illuminates as a vehicle enters into the sensors’ range, letting you know you should wait to make a lane change.
The available Driver Awareness package offers a number of high-tech features that utilize camera, ultrasonic and radar sensors. They vigilantly monitor the environment around your vehicle to alert the driver to potentially hazardous traffic situations. Features include, but are not limited to:
•Safety Alert Seat
•Forward Collision Alert
•Lane Keep Assist
•Side Blindzone Alert
