The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe will reach 1,000 horse courtesy of Hennessey Performance. Production will be limited to 12 units.
Hennessey loves fast cars. How fast? The American speed tuner is in the process of turning the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe into the supercar of the future. We are talking somewhere in the ballpark of 1,000 horses. This is not the first time Hennessey has tried their hand at turning Cadillac's into high- performance speed machines. The guys from the Texas-based tuner have reached performance levels of 650 and 700 horses.
Hennessey's latest project is the Limited Edition V1000 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. Each car will receive a custom twin-turbocharged system that will deliver an output of 1,000hp and 950 lb-ft of torque. The end result is truly incredible as the car can jet from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 230 mph. Customers will have the option of choosing either manual or automatic transmissions, both of which require their own series of modifications. The automatics receive a performance torque converter while the manuals get a dual friction clutch.
Brembo carbon-ceramic units are fitted all around and the suspension gets a one inch lowering kit and shocks tuned by John Heinricy. The exterior will be dressed with a full carbon fiber body kit, while the interior gets a mix of carbon fiber and Alcantara trim. 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires round out the sleek exterior. Needless to say, the V1000 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe is limited in production to only 12 units and Hennessey is currently taking orders. They also provide a one year or 12,000 mile limited warranty on their installed components.
