Dear Media Colleague,

On behalf of Cadillac and the entire team that designed and engineered the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, I want to welcome you to Austin. As you make your way through the vibrant cityscape and eclectic outskirts of town, the Cadillac ATS-V will show you an unmatched combination of power and technology.

Home of the Circuit of the Americas – the country’s only F1 track featuring 20 turns and an elevation change – this drive will allow you to experience every feature the Cadillac ATS-V has to offer.

We hope you enjoy your time and drive experience in Austin. If there’s anything the Cadillac Communications staff can do to help you during your visit, please don’t hesitate to ask.
