If you have never been to an IMSA race, you are truly missing out. Legions of factory-backed teams battle it out, and the action is often nailbiting. One manufacturer seems to consistently dominate the series, and Cadillac is celebrating in style. The V-Series cars proved their worth by bringing home the Manufacturer, Driver, Team, and Endurance Championships for the 2017 season. A press release this morning outlines this significant achievement.
For a proper celebration, all three V-Series cars will be dressed up in a Championship Edition livery. Offered on the 2018 ATS-V Coupe, Sedan, and the CTS-V, the Championship Edition is offered in Black Raven or Crystal White Tricoat. Aggressive V-Series graphics and mirrors finished in Red Obsession are sure to steal your concentration. The logo of the DPi-V.R race car is found on the quarter-glass, as a tribute to their wild Daytona Prototypes. It was the DPi that began the season with 7 straight wins, securing the manufacturer’s trophy.
Bringing home victories at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring, both wins are combined into the “36 Hours of Florida”. The celebration continues on the inside, where you are greeted by Jet Black RECARO seats and Morello Red trim. Standard equipment includes the Performance Data Recorder, which is augmented by the Cosworth Toolbox. This Windows program allows for complete data logging of an entire race. Everything from fuel trims to tire temperatures can be played back frame-by-frame. Pricing for the ATS-V will start at $72,190, and the CTS-V will arrive at $105,730.
