Hennessey Twin Turbo V1000 CTS-V Coupe

What happens if you take a V8 American muscle and give it more muscle?  Meet the Hennessey Twin Turbo V1000 CTS-V Coupe. As the name suggests, it is based on the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The standard CTS-V Coupe packs GM’s ferocious 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 motor, producing 556 horsepower and 747 Nm of torque. That is a hell lot of power, but not according to Hennessey.

Hennessey ditched the supercharger and replaced it with two turbochargers, strengthen the internals of the massive V8, upgraded the injectors, intake, exhaust and installed a completely new engine management unit. The result is (ready for this?) a mind boggling 1000 horsepower and 1288 Nm of torque! This means a 0-100 kph time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 370 kph.

In addition to the massive power increase, the Hennessey V1000 CTS-V Coupe features an aggressive widebody kit with a host of carbon fiber aero parts. Only a very limited production of 12 samples will be built.
