Cadillac CTS-V With A Shot Of Hennessey

If the 551 hp Cadillac CTS-V isn’t enough for you on your daily commute, maybe add a shot of Hennessey from Hennessey Performance to bump that up to 1,226 hp. Capable of 190 mph, the stock CTS-V is more than enough for most drivers. The Hennessey infused Caddy bumps that up to 242mph. You’ll never be late for work again.

The Hennessy CTS-V is mated with a VR1200 Twin Turbo, 7.0-liter V8 engine. There are three settings on the turbo so you can decide if you want the full 1,226ph, or you’d rather the scaled back settings of 1,000 or 800hp. A six-speed manual transmission is what most of the drivers of this beast will use, but if you have an extra $20,000 to throw down, you can get a custom automatic unit.

Hennessy says the powerful Cadillac beast accelerates to 60mph in 2.9 seconds, gets the quarter mile in 10.2 seconds and breaks 200mph in a standing mile. Mind-blowing for a sedan.

The other less interesting upgrades on the car include suspension and brake upgrades. The exterior has just enough functioning carbon fiber accessories to look cool, but not enough to look like something out of The Fast and the Furious.

To get one of the 12 Hennessey CTS-Vs made, you’ll need at least $295,000… and a really good insurance company.
