Hennessey introduces the Cadillac V1000 CTS-V Coupe

[ 2 ] August 3, 2011 |

Hennessey has been around in the performance world for quite awhile and have made some marvelous machines, but their newest rendition of the already powerful Cadillac CTS-V coupe, the V1000, is just insane.

As the moniker suggests, the 7.0L v8 under the hood puts down 1000 horsepower and almost as much torque leaving us with a monster Caddy that runs the 1320 in 10.9 seconds @ 136mph, has a top speed of 230mph and can get to 60 in 3.5 seconds. Talk about insane!

Not to worry, there is also sufficient braking to turn that go into whoa, with monstrous 15.1” ceramic Brembo brakes on all four corners, outfitted with huge 20 inch wheels and 345 tires in the rear and 275′s up front. But not only does it perform, it also looks great with an enhanced body kit and stylish interior decked out in carbon fiber, leather and alcantara.

Only 12 of these beasts will be produced, so if you’ve got a big wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket and are looking for some major head turning muscle, you may just have to give Hennessey a ring.
