Hennessey Performance never seems to run out of cars that it modifies to become faster and even more powerful than its standard type. For this occasion, HP decided to feast on a 2011 Cadillac CTS-V, a car that is already powered by a Corvette ZR1 derivative 6-2-liter V8 engine, and try to make it even more powerful than it already is.

The result, as you can expect, is staggering. In tuning the CTS-V, Hennessey decided to add a few instruments to the coupe, including a cold air induction system, a smaller supercharger pulley, ling tube headers, a three-inch exhaust system, an improved intercooler, and a new engine management system, among others.

After finishing up on their new work of art, the completely souped-up CTS-V now throttles with up to 700 horsepower with 70 lb-ft of torque, giving it a more than impressive top speed of 211 mph and a 0-60mph time of 3.3 seconds.

Check out the video of the CTS-V doing some test work and see for yourself how Hennessey Performance was able to turn an already powerful coupe into something that can fluster even the most expensive of supercars.

Cool modifications. I mean the results of it. Considering that it only took it 11.14 seconds to conquer a quarter of a mile. It’s not bad at all but to only reach 129 to 130 in that long of a time for a 700 HP car seems to be a little weak for me.

well that was an amazing acceleration by a luxury car. also it can throttle up to 700

70 lb/ft of torque is horrible. Must be because of the "ling tube headers."
