Cadillac’s long-awaited BMW 3-Series fighter, the 2013 Cadillac ATS compact luxury sedan, is now less than a year away from launch, so we could be seeing it in production trim very soon, perhaps as early as the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show this November or at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show next January.
In the lead up to its arrival, Cadillac has released a new teaser video featuring several of the key people responsible for its development, including GM’s North American chief Mark Reuss.
Reuss recently took a prototype for the rear-wheel drive ATS for a quick spin at one of Cadillac’s proving grounds, and hired a crew to film the event.
The video also provides a few subtle clues as to some of the car’s design elements, though most of it remains heavily camouflaged.
Pictured above is an official teaser revealing the overall shape of the ATS, released back in August along with the confirmation that the ATS will hit the market as a 2013 model and be manufactured at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan.
