General Motors has released the third installment of the company's mini web series on the Cadillac ATS and its development at the Nürburgring. The latest video takes us around the infamous German track with Adam Dean, Cadillac ride and handling engineer, behind the wheel. Dean gives us an in-depth look at what's like to sling the new baby Cadillac around one of the world's most challenging road courses at speed. We can't imagine too many ATS buyers will be caning their sedan around a race track, but it's good to know the vehicle can hold its own just the same.

Will GM's efforts on Green Hell help the ATS take on hardware from BMW and Mercedes-Benz? We'll just have to wait to find out. Word has it the vehicle will debut with the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that will eventually show up in the likes of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu and next-generation Chevrolet Impala. The lump should produce somewhere between 270 and 280 horsepower. That should be plenty for a small luxury sedan. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself.
