Hennessey Gives Us a Preview of the 1,000-HP Cadillac CTS-V Coupe

If you think that the 556-hp Cadillac CTS-V isn’t powerful enough, Hennessey has given us a preview of its 1,000 horsepower CTS-V coupe. Hennessey has already created a 700 horsepower version of the CTS-V and a 600 horsepower version of the Camaro, but this takes the CTS-V to even higher heights.

The Hennessey V1000 Cadillac CTS-V coupe is powered by a twin-turbocharged 427 cubic-inch LS V8. Part of the upgrades to the engine include forged steel connecting rods, forged low compression pistons, a forged steel crank, ARP main Studs and head Bolts, high flow cylinder heads and upgraded fuel injectors. The V8 can be mated to either a manual or automatic transmission.

All of the upgrades helps the Cadillac CTS-V coupe reach 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and the quarter mile in 10.9 seconds. It has a top speed of 230 mph.

Hennessey only plans on building 12 units, but the pricing has not been released.
