Cadillac is offering buyers in the small luxury segment more reasons to opt for its award-winning ATS sedan with the launch of a new special edition dubbed the ATS Crimson Sport. The special edition sedan will be produced during the spring of 2014 only, and comes exclusively in a seductive Crimson Red metallic paint finish.

In addition to the special paint job, the ATS Crimson Sport benefits from exclusive 18-inch wheels and a subtle body kit consisting of a front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser insert and trunk lid spoiler.

For the interior, the special edition comes with a heated steering wheel and microfiber suede trim. Buyers can choose from four different interior tones: Morello Red with Jet Black accents, Caramel with Jet Black accents, Jet Black with Jet Black accents or Light Platinum with Jet Black accents.

The ATS Crimson Sport can be ordered with either the 272-horsepower ATS 2.0T Performance Collection (with automatic transmission) trim or 321-horsepower 3.6L Premium Collection trim with rear- or all-wheel drive. The 2.0-liter model has a starting price of $46,010, while the 3.6-liter model will set you back at least $51,010.

Optional extras include a navigation system, sunroof, Driver Assist Package, and Advanced Security Package. An additional Track Package is available for the 3.6L Premium Collection model equipped with rear-wheel drive.

Sales of the 2014 Cadillac ATS Crimson Sport commence this month.
