Cadillac Seeing Red, Introducing Limited-Edition Crimson Sport ATS Models
Cadillac is introducing a new limited-production version of its hot new ATS sedan. The Crimson Sport special edition offers buyers some exclusive features.
This unique version of the ATS will only be built during the spring of 2014; after that it’s gone like yesterday. The cars will wear unique Crimson Red Metallic paint, which looks pretty neat in pictures. They’ll also benefit from the sportiest options available on Cadillac’s entry-level model, things like the available Track Package.
The cars’ interiors are offered in four different flavors: red with black accents, tan with black trim, black on black or gray and black. If you like black there’s definitely something for you here. Additionally drivers are treated to a heated steering wheel that’s dressed in microfiber suede, a material the shifter wears as well. The front seats also feature butt warmers for rebuking Old Man Winter’s icy chill.

The Crimson Sport special edition is available on ATS Cadillacs equipped with the either the 2.0T Performance Collection and an automatic transmission or the 3.6L Premium Collection in either rear- or all-wheel-drive variations.
Base price for all of this shimmering-red goodness is just about 46 grand for a 2.0T version. If you want one of these with the V6 engine plan on spending a whisker more than $51,000. Look for Crimson Sport ATS sedans at Cadillac dealers by the end of the month, which means, like, really, REALLY soon.
