    Volkswagen has been talking and talking about it for ages. They want to have the world's most powerful production four-cylinder which is a title that currently belongs to AMG with the M133 2.0 liter four-cylinder in the CLA/GLA 45AMG models. This is why Volkswagen stole away the man responsible for that AMG motor. Volkswagen talked about a 375 horsepower 2.0 liter four-cylinder well over a year ago. They then released the Volkswagen Golf R400 concept in April of last year. Well, the production version of this car will be called R420 according to CAR. 420 refers to metric horsepower so it looks like 414 bhp for the new ultimate Golf. This is what VAG powertrain chief Dr. Heinz-Jacob Neusser had to say, 'We have the Golf more sporty than ever before, since we soon will have the Golf R400 - we will do this car. We are in fact in development of it right now.' Expect 400+ horsepower, all wheel drive, and a DSG. Essentially everything you love about the Golf R but more of it. More power, better brakes, better handling, etc. Yes, it will be offered for sale in the United States. It better be. The expected debut is September of this year in Frankfurt. Deliveries are expected to begin late this year and likely in 2016 in the USA. Ok VW, you have talked a big game. Let's see this thing already. Source

    Car and Driver is the first one to publish test figures for the 2016 ATS-V coupe. They tested the 6-speed manual version and 8-speed automatic test figures will come later. Is the new ATS-V a BMW F82 M4 killer? Not exactly, but it is a decent first attempt. Let's get the acceleration figures for the 464 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque 3.6 liter twin turbo V6 out of the way. 0-60 comes in 4.2 seconds, 0-100 in 9.9 seconds, and the 1/4 mile in 12.6 seconds at 115 miles per hour. Not exactly the world beating acceleration performance that the Caddy boss was bragging about. It is roughly even with a manual M3/M4. It is considerably behind Car and Driver's own figures for a DCT 2015 F80 M3 though. Will the 8-speed 8L90 automatic version close the gap? Maybe. It certainly is not 'whipping' the Germans the way Johan de Nysschen claimed and it does not have a horsepower or torque advantage anywhere other than on paper versus BMW. The Mercedes-AMG C63 S outmuscles the ATS-V by the way. Ok, so he was wrong about that. What about his statements on how it would handle, brake, and just drive better than its German rivals? Well, he is wrong there too as Car and Driver's M4 test figures show .99g on the skidpad and the ATS-V hits .97g. Where is the major advantage for the Cadillac? It does not brake any better either. It is also heavier than the BMW M4 at 3760 pounds. As far as the styling inside and out you do not get the same quality the Germans offer and you should for the $74,450 price as tested. Audi, Mercedes, and BMW simply have better looking cars and better looking interiors. Look at this garbage instrument cluster on the ATS-V: The ATS-V just is not as good as the BMW M3/M4. The Mercedes-AMG C63 remains to be seen but but those of us who have seen the the C63 and ATS-V in person (like this writer) can say it also blows the ATS-V away. The C63 has better styling inside and out, the M177 V8 is more powerful, and you are looking at roughly the same money if not less with options. Johan de Nysschen should not have opened his mouth when the ATS-V can not back his words up. The CTS-V likely will and does outmuscle its German competition with comparable quality inside and out. It likely will come in cheaper too. For the same money as its German rivals the ATS-V does not offer enough performance to overcome its deficiencies. Back to the drawing board Cadillac, you got too cocky and couldn't back it up.

    I totally did not expect a vert either. Gonna get kicked out of a few drag strips if you ever go see what she's got in her! hahaha. How do you like the wheels? Nice and light? I've thought about some Arc 8's a number of times because of the reputation and they are sooooooo inexpensive compared to a good set of Volks.

    Lesson learned! No offense taken, you are correct on all fronts. I certainly wasn't trying to "cheap out", more just felt it wasn't necessary. And you know what, on E50 at 20PSI, it's not. But boost needs to rise, that's just how it goes :rolleyes: I'll go STG3 and on the tuning side well take a bit of load off the HPFP. You'll be fine. I hope you document everything with your usual candor. Random picture of my car, don't think i've ever posted one. Getting the headlights blacked out soon, what an eyesore....
