Modifying Your Engine Seems Awesome Until It All Goes To Hell

Fail

And this poor CTS-V owner finds out the hard way.

Nothing about this Cadillac CTS-V gives off the impression that its owner had left the 6.2-liter V8 stock. Not the ferocity it had while launching off the line, not the angry roar coming from the exhaust, and definitely not the fact that it was at the 2016 WannaGOFAST racing event in Ocala, Florida. Here, nitrous and superchargers are as common as aphrodisiacs at a nymphomaniac's house, which might explain why this poor Caddy blew its engine while trying to pull a record half-mile drag race time.

Watch and mourn as the Cadillac loses its bearings about six seconds after it launches.
