Cadillac Celebrates IMSA Dominance With Championship Edition ATS-V, CTS-V

Cadillac is celebrating its dominant 2017 IMSA season with new IMSA Championship Edition versions of its ATS-V and CTS-V.

The IMSA Championship Edition models are intended to mark the 2017 IMSA Prototype class championship Cadillac won with its new Dallara DPi-V.R fielded by Wayne Taylor Racing. With brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor behind the wheel, Cadillac won seven out of 10 races on its way to the championship – including the demanding 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring.

The ATS-V IMSA Championship Edition is set apart from standard versions of the vehicle by its IMSA hood decals, ‘Red Obsession’ painted mirror caps, a small DPi-V.R motif on the rear window, 18-inch V-Series wheels with black accents, Recaro seats and a Morello Red interior upholstery package. The package also includes a carbon front splitter, rear wing, hood vent and rear diffuser, along with red Brembo brake calipers. A certificate of authenticity is also included so you know this is a true IMSA-backed package.
