Even if Cadillac CTS-V is already an amazing car, Hennessey Performance put their hands on it and have improved this vehicle with an awesome tune. The Hennessey V1000 packs major power, sleek exterior mods, and interior, or lack thereof, upgrades as well.
This car gets a 1,000 hp at 6,400 rpm out of a twin-turbocharged 427ci LS V8. Hennessey projects the car will hook up enough to get from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, but top out at 230 mph. To reach this, the turbines will boost torque to 950 lb-ft torque at 4,000 rpm, which will make getting the power to the pavement a matter of some intrigue.
Do you think that’s all? You’re wrong, there’s still more. The body has been widened, the clutch got an upgrade, and stopping power has been upgraded with a set of 15.1″ inch Brembo carbon ceramic breaks. Beside this the CTS-V Coupe is now riding on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that wrap a set of Hennessey monoblock wheels.
Another key point in this tune is the weight reduction, which is estimated to be about 200lbs lighter. Also the seats have been traded for a lighter set, and the rear ones can be taken out completely.
So, if you afford it, hurry up because is a limited edition and only 12 will be produced.
