    Cadillac Racing's lastest weapon is based on the all-new ATS-V. It is built by GM motorsports partners Pratt & Miller, constructors for the infamous Corvette endurance racing team.

    The ATS-V.R is now a fully homologated FIA GT3 car, which allows it entry to over thirty international series and events, including the GT class of the Pirelli World Challenge, in which Cadillac has had much success racing the CTS-V.R.

    The ATS-V.R would make the perfect accompaniment to the roster of GT3 vehicles already in the game.

  4. Amended, this is simply the ATS-V.R as we know it, we know it's going to PWC but no word on the official details yet.

    Oh man. That doesn't look like a GT3 car-- it's too lean and mean.

    I came here to make a this suggestion. Well done on the post! I was a big fan of the CTS-V GT3 cars in the PWC. Really looking forward to seeing this one in person, but also, hopefully in GT6.

    This would make a perfect Gr.3 car since it already has GT3 specs. Also, wasn’t there a point in time where the manufacturer series had Cadillac as one of the listed manufacturers?
