The Germans do this, and we know what Caddy aspires to be.

The owner-passenger customer doesn't purchase a Type-V car, nor do they buy an BMW-M branded vehicle, nor a performance oriented Benze, they buy the CT6 (or bigger), top 7-Series, or surely the S-Class. Maybe they even buy the Type-V for weekend fun, I don't know. I do know that one brand can serve both clients.

Re: how NOT to do [RedLabel]** ...(ats-V)... imho

. . . part one
thinking of {RedPortfolio} as just a collection/listing/registry of Lincoln's top performers
maybe ALL the LincStangs** (tho leave the Track Day Specials for MusStang)
maybe only one version of some models

** no lame base engine

Red Label needs to be more V-sport than V.
