To create a definitive performance vehicle, the truly talented were set loose. With a laser focus on the creation of a technologically aggressive and elegant machine, nothing was overlooked. The standard has been set, and its territory marked.
Beneath the lightweight V-forged wheels lie massive best-in-class standard, race-inspired six-piston front, four-piston rear, fixed-caliper Brembo® brakes with vented rotors for incredible stopping power. Brake ducts cool the ferritic nitrocarburized (FNC) rotors – our patented rotor coating that inhibits corrosion while improving performance and appearance.
MICHELIN® PILOT® SUPER SPORT TIRES
Specifically designed for the ATS-V, 18" Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport summer-only tires3 with a progressive tread and tri-compound construction have a custom molded shape for maximum grip, stopping power and high-speed control.
3. Do not use summer-only tires in winter conditions, as it would adversely affect vehicle safety, performance and durability. Use only GM-approved tire and wheel combinations. Unapproved combinations may change the vehicle’s performance characteristics. Lower profile tires wear faster. Wheel and tire damage may occur on rough or damaged roads or from surfaces or from curbs, debris or obstacles. This damage is not covered by the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
PERFORMANCE TRACTION MANAGEMENT
The ultimate control on any track. ATS-V is the first vehicle in its class to offer standard competition spec traction and stability controls. Five specifically tuned traction modes (Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 and Race) accommodate any driving conditions and preferences.
CARVED TO COMPETE
This is where the line becomes blurred between its turbocharged genesis and athletic street presence. Every design element serves a deliberate, functional and aesthetic purpose. Innovations in everything from aerodynamics to materials result in an intimidating sum of its parts, both on the street and at the starting line.
V-FORGED ALUMINUM WHEELS
Aluminum wheels bring low weight and high strength together in perfect balance. Forged from billet, the process delivers on both performance and design, while the true beauty is realized from the driver's seat.
The functional splitter creates a dramatic improvement in aerodynamics by generating a massive influx of directed airflow, resulting in reduced front end lift.
CARBON FIBER HOOD
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.
WAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE.
The technological command center has been intuitively designed, customized and integrated to give the driver unprecedented control. The ATS-V applies next-generation technology to enhance performance, safety and entertainment.
Cut the cords with Wireless Charging2. Induction technology lets you charge your compatible phone and other select mobile devices anytime the vehicle is running.
2. The system wirelessly charges one PMA- or Qi-compatible mobile device. To check for phone or other device compatibility, see www.gmtotalconnect.com.
The reconfigurable Head-Up Display offers a full-color interface, which conveniently projects useful information, such as speed and navigation on the windshield. This smart system aids in keeping attention on the road for a more secure drive.
Four distinct drive modes, (Tour, Sport, Track, & Snow/Ice1) electronically calibrate a variety of performance features, optimizing and customizing your drive to suit conditions.
1. Snow/Ice is automatic transmission only.
V is in every strand of our DNA — strands that fuse a proven motorsport pedigree with pure engineering propensity. A perfect balance of track-certified prowess and street-smart refinement. The proof, a razor-edged litmus test of the world's most notoriously punishing tracks — just for starters. We then tuned it and released it to the civility of the street.
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.
189 MPH TOP SPEED ON THE TRACK
A top speed that will fulfill even the most aggressive of drivers’ 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.
0-60 IN 3.8 SECONDS
Breach 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.
NO PAIN. ALL GAIN.
Great power comes with great comfort. The performance-focused cabin brings driver support and convenience to its pinnacle. Every aspect of stability, control and attention to detail has been taken to a magnified level of refinement.
THICK RIM STEERING WHEEL
The ergonomically contoured steering wheel provides comfort and control. Leather-wrapped or available sueded microfiber create a refined and sporty look and feel.
CARBON FIBER INTERIOR TRIM
An additional level of refinement is achieved with the use of exposed carbon fiber accents enhanced with a contrasting silver weave. It dramatically adds a sport-inspired atmosphere to the handcrafted cut-and-sewn interior.
A well-tailored and cultivated experience through and through. Precise fit and finish of hand-selected Mulan leather accents, sueded microfiber, aluminum and carbon fiber all come together in perfect harmony.
