Ask The Cadillac ATS-V's Chief Engineers Anything You Want

Few cars have us salivating quite as profusely as the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V coupe and sedan. The numbers speak for themselves – 455 hp, 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 185 MPH – but there's more to the ATS-V story than just bench-racing statistics. That's what Cadillac's chief engineer is here to answer.

This is John Barrick's baby. He's the program engineering manager for the ATS-V, while Tony Roma is the man behind the new CTS and chief engineer for the V Series. Both have worked on every V that Cadillac has ever put out.

So what do you want to know about the ATS-V? There's the third generation Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management system, and a reworked chassis to take advantage of it all – not to mention that screaming twin-turbo'd V6.

Ask away and we'll get them to answer as many questions as possible before they find the key to the handcuffs we've hidden underneath their seats.
