Cadillac introduced the V-series to its ATS lineup Tuesday evening at the Los Angeles auto show. The ATS is the marque’s smallest and lightest car, and as with other V cars, the ATS-V will pack a lot of power onto that diminutive frame.

The car is powered by a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 that produces an estimated 455 horsepower and 445 pound feet of torque. The automaker says the car will go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of more than 185.
