Cadillac chief engineer Dave Leone has revealed the company could eventually offer a hotter ATS-V.

Speaking to Car & Driver, Leone confirmed "We might have something down the road that is a little bit more aggressive.”  While the engineer was non-committal, sources have told the magazine an extreme ATS-V could arrive as early as 2017.

There's no word on specifics but the standard ATS-V has a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine that develops 464 bhp (346 kW) and 444 lb-ft (601 Nm) of torque.  It enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 189 mph (304 km/h).
