Cadillac ATS Luxury Sport Edition Is A Japan Exclusive

Born in Detroit, trained at Nurburgring and offered exclusively in Japan, this is Cadillac’s latest limited model called “Luxury Sport Edition”.

It looks like BMW isn’t the only car maker interested in offering special editions in the Land of the Rising Sun, as Cadillac announced an exclusive ATS model dedicated for the Japanese market.

Built to tackle the likes of the German trio, Caddie’s four-door, five-passenger compact luxury model appeals to the customer looking for a sports sedan, especially as this limited edition variant comes with a set of 19-inch V-spoke aluminum wheels wrapped in 225/35 R19 at the front and 255/30 R19 at the back, Pirelli P Zero tires. Despite their size, these impressive rims reduce unsprung weight and shelter a big set of Brembo brakes.

Cadillac also provides a sports suspension setup to go with the vehicle’s sporty nature, highlighted by the 2.0-litre, 272hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque, turbocharged four-banger.

The ATS will be available only in two color choices (Sable Black, and Crystal White), and it will cost ¥ 5,290,000. That’s exactly $49,809 at the current exchange rates.
