Hennessey is going all-out with 1,000 horsepower Cadillac CTS-V Coupe


In the previous-generation Cadillac CTS-V modifications from Hennessey Performance shop, we see only performance upgrades with minor appearance modifications. But this time around, not only Hennessey pumps the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe to astronomical power sphere, it also gives it a new body suite to match its new found power.

The previous-generation Cadillac CTS-V coupe was pumped to 700 horsepower by Hennessey Performance shop, and we’re in awe, but that is not compared to the new Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. Hennessey managed to muster out 1000 horsepower out of the twin-turbocharged engine.

At the heart of the 1000-hp is a 427 cubic-inch LS V8 engine that has been upgraded with forged low compression pistons, forged steel connecting rods, forged steel crank and ARP main studs and head bolts to be able to with stand the beastly 1000 horsepower output. To push enough high pressure air into the cylinders, a set of dual ball bearing turbochargers along with high-flow cylinder heads are used to satisfy this hungry 1000-hp beast.

But absolute power alone would not make you a leader, so Hennessey provides a new set of bodykit to enhance the Cadillac CTS-V’s charisma. The new bodykit consists of a carbonaero CTS-V widebody upgrade, carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rear diffuser, carbon fiber front fenders, carbon fiber extractor hood, and carbon fiber rear fender flares.

The V1000 Twin-Turbos Cadillac CTS-V Coupe will be a limited production, which only 12 units will be built. No pricing has been set yet, but buyers will get a one day track experience with John Heinricy, former General Motors test driver. Check out the Press Release below for more details on the upgrades.
