Hennessey VR1200

Hennessey does not usually disappoint in terms of preparations and strengths, and almost always impressive creations. Nor is it for less in this case, where the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe gets very serious on the outside and inside, with a whopping 1,200 hp. Goodbye GM engine 6.2-liter LSA V8: the Hennessey VR1200 receives an aluminum block 7.0-liter V8 also with twin-turbo supercharging. A real beast, and it should think that Hennessey, and to make things better than they are big.

Specifically, this engine delivers specially prepared by Hennessey 1243 hp at 6,400 rpm and peak torque of 1,500 Nm at 4,000 rpm. A real exaggeration, although it must be said that the bloc has worked long enough to not burst at the first change, reinforcing pistons, connecting rods and camshafts. In fact, it is basically the same engine that we saw in the impressive Hennessey Venom GT, and guaranteed for three years or 36,000 miles. As expected, the performance of this Hennessey VR1200 are crazy.

Hennessey VR1200According to the U.S. preparer own this Cadillac CTS-V Coupe as “special” is able to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in just 2.9 seconds and reach 389 km / h top speed. In the quarter mile (acceleration 0-400 meters) stopped the clock at just 10.2 seconds at a speed of 227 km / h, figures to which few could cope.

To manage such benefits, Hennessey Perfomance model also gives the team Brembo ceramic brakes to match (with clips of eight and six pistons) and adjustable magnetic ride suspension and a body kit designed to help aerodynamics and made of carbon fiber. And, inside, more air sports. By retaining the basic look, externally speaking, the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, otherwise we could be talking about a completely different car. Hennessey built twelve units of this special preparation, yet unknown price.
