The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe is a fast car in its own right, thanks to it carrying a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 556 horsepower and 551 lb/ft of torque. But what happens when 556 and 551 just aren’t enough? Well, you turn up the heat and pack more performance. Hello Cadillac CTS-V Coupe "Martin V1000" by Martin Technologies!
Speaking of power, there’s a reason why this car was codenamed the ’Martin V1000.’ It’s powered by a 7.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces a mind-blowing 1,000 horsepower at 7,100 rpm and 900 lb/ft torque at 5,500 rpm, good enough figures to post a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds with a top speed that goes well north of 200 mph.
To go with all that unmistakable power, Martin Technologies made sure that the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe looked about as good as any car with that much power should. So they dressed up the CTS-V Coupe with a Martin Technologies-designed body kit that comprises of two rear pieces, two rockers, a front chin spoiler, a rear decklid spoiler, and a set of custom 22" three-piece custom wheels and tires.
With all these modifications in tow, it’s no wonder why the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe "Martin V1000" Edition is garnering so much attention. Awesome good looks notwithstanding, the car’s modified, 1,000 horsepower engine is enough reason to make clients reach for their checkbooks when they see the car at the 2011 SEMA Auto Show .
