One after-market performance tuner based in Texas has taken a Cadillac CTS-V and turned into a monster that feeds from eating pavement at 242 MPH. This CTS-V Coupe is powered by a 7.0 liter V8 Twin Turbo engine that pumps out 1226 horsepower and 1109 lb ft of torque.
The company, called Hennessey Performance, is charging $295K for these enhancements which include a new brake and suspension system and a six-speed automatic transmission that helps take the vehicle to 60 MPH in just 2.9 seconds, to the quarter mile mark in 10.2 seconds and over 200 MPH inside of a mile.
The car looks like it was made for speedy performance, with plenty of stylish additions and upgrades. There’s a carbon fiber splitter, hood extracter, spoiler and all-around bottom kit that helps the car fly as fast as a bullet. Only 12 of these cars will be created and sold, so it’s highly unlikely any of us will get a chance to see these additions up close and on the road.
