We are extremely proud to announce that Teddy Knisely has just set the new world quarter mile record for the Cadillac ATS-V with a very impressive time of 9.717 @ 141.19 mph. He then backed it up with another world record on the following pass, going 9.706 @ 140.2 mph, at a density altitude of 432’ above sea level. Teddy drove his car to and from the track each day, and made a total of twelve nine second passes in a row this weekend at the Cadillac Attack event in Orlando, with the whole world watching.
These are great advancements for the community, and those who weren’t familiar with the platform in the past have certainly started to take notice. From a seemingly unassuming twin turbo V6 come times that make V8 guys start to wonder what they’re doing with all the extra displacement when they could be getting better results with less!
It just goes to show that when the community works together we can make strides in the ATS-V platform and push it further than anyone ever imagined. We don’t plan to slow down anytime soon so be on the lookout for new records to be set over and over again.
Tapout now has three ATS-Vs in the nines, with more coming soon. Who wants to be next?
