While the Cadillac does take the win on timeover the BMW, the trap speeds look to tell a different tale. The ATS-V traps at119.82 mph and the BMW get 105.89 mph, this leads one to believe that the BMWmight have tapped off a little before then end of the run so as not to breakout of the 11.5 second bracket. Even if this is the case, the win on the daywent to the Cadillac and that’s what counts. So you can save heaps of money andhave a car capable of beating the BMW benchmarkers, but if you buy the ATS-Vjust to be different, that saving can go into performance upgrades that willdefinitely see the BMWs trailing. That’s what we’d do.
