Cadillac Working on ATS-V+, Possibly Using 7.0L V8

We have received some tips from our friend who is working in GM, that Cadillac is planning a higher performance version of the already-high-performance ATS-V, named the “ATS-V+”.


The first question to be asked must be: what engine? There are multiple choices within GM’s parts bin. If you have noticed the engine compartment of the ATS-V (shown below), you will see it is more than enough to accommodate a V8, since the 3.6L twi-turbo V6 engine is sitting almost 100% behind the front wheel axle.

Even though the pricing for the 2015 Corvette Z06 is not available at this moment, a lot of interested buyers have put their names on their local Chevy dealership’s waiting list. As far as I know in major metro areas, some dealership’s list has hundreds of people’s name on it.

2015 Corvette Z06 Final Output Will Be 650HP

We got this leaked dyno chart from Jalopnik, which clearly shows the output curve of the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06.

Maximum output: 650hp @ 6400rpm
Maximum torque: 650 lb-ft @ 3600rpm

Although the chart does not show, according to GM, the engine is even able to supply a torque of 457 lb-ft at idle – that is a lot of muscle to move a car.


Update 06/06: below is the official power chart from GM.
