Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe with insane 1,226 horsepower


Insane is not really the best word to describe the Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe, as matter of fact, its mind boggling to see what lies beneath this sinister looking black coupe. We are utterly with words to describe this speed demon. The Hennessey Performance shop has tuned the latest Cadillac CTS-V Coupe to a maximum power output of 1,226 horsepower.

The last time we’ve heard of the 700-hp Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, but this time around, the company has tuned up a notch with the use of a 7.0-liter supercharged V8 engine. Engine swap? You betcha! To get to 1,226 horsepower and 1,109 pound-feet of torque, Hennessey Performance shop also added two turbos along with adjustable boost controller that can be controlled from the driver’s seat. This helps dial in the horsepower to 800 hp, 1,000 hp, and all the way up to 1,226 hp. According to the company, in the highest boost setting, the Cadillac VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe is the “world’s most powerful four-seat vehicle.”

There is no elderly association with the Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe. It can blast from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, zipping a quarter-mile in a blazing 10.2 second with an exit speed of 141 mph, and top out at 242 mph.

Speed is good, but it needs a handler. A special made clutch system has to be employed to handle the ferocious power. In addition, a tuned suspension, carbon-fiber aero package, and 20-inch wheels help with putting the controlled power to the ground.
