Hennessey Performance is bringing a bit more class to their Cadillac CTS-V V700 package by dropping it into one of the rarest Cadillac CTS-V models ever: the Black Diamond Edition with a manual transmission. Now owners of the exclusive Black Diamond can also take part in the 707 HP madness that was provided to the standard model last year.

The Black Diamond CTS-V features a dark tri-coat paint an embedded with SpectraFlair Bright Silver pigment. This special pigment uses aluminum flakes encapsulated in a glass-like substance called magnesium fluoride. The result is a paint that has a diamond-like sparkle as light hits the surface from different angles. The special exterior paint is further highlighted by Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels with yellow Brembo brake calipers and a special Midnight Sapele wood trim.

The sparkling exterior of the Black Diamond makes it a hot commodity to begin with, but Hennessey’s V700 upgrade package causes the temperature to spike with 707 raging horses, up from the CTS-V’s standard 556 HP. For this increase, the Cadillac’s 6.2 liter supercharged V8 engine was given a plethora of goodies, including an HPE Cold Air Induction System, supercharger pulley upgrade, intercooler heat exchanger upgrade, and a V700 camshaft upgrade. Other features include high flow cylinder heads, stainless steel long tube headers, high flow catalytic converters, and stainless steel mid-pipes.

With these additions, the Cadillac CTS-V Black Diamond V700 can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, make the quarter mile in 10.9 second at a speed of 128 mph, and will be capable of a top speed of 211 mph.

Some cars have rare, creative, artistic, bold and many more concept used for their cars. But for me what’s important is the pleasure and joy it can give.

Hennessey is one of the best tuning company. I was impressed on what they have done with this car. The styling and figure performance is pretty awesome.

I like the styling of the car for this tuning company had made it more sporty and aggressive. The v8 engine here is kind of gas guzzler. However, I wonder on what will be the pricing of this vehicle?

Well, it’s a good thing that they have boost the performance of the car into an impressive figure! Hennessey really makes an awesome aftermarket version. The car seems faster in terms of 0-60 mph.

Well, I have to say that the styling of the car is quite good as well as its speed performance. However, with its brand I bet it would be pricey.

As expected from the Cadillac it already have a high performing vehicle. The styling is kind of elegant and the speed is quiet impressive! And it seems that the Hennessey made an awesome tuned up here.

I really can’t tell you guys how much I love this car. It is very simply, yet Hennessey was still able to make it very outstanding in the looks department. And of course, there is the performance.

Well, I think this Black Diamond Edition is more likely approaching than the usual one. Hennessey models are really astonishing units.

One thing that I really like about this one is the interior. It is not really all that outrageous, but it is certainly very classy with all the trims that they have included.

Yeah, the horsepower and sprint of the car is quite impressive. However, it seems that the figure for its top speed is kind of depressing..I think its possible to increase that up to 200+ mph.

Hennessey is one of the tuning company that upgrade the car into an awesome and high speed performing vehicle! Well, the result is not disappointing at all! And I have to say that its horsepower and torque is just enough to make this car runs like a rocket-speed.

I really like Hennessey’s work on this one. They made the CTS-V even more menacing with that overall black paint job, and those wheels also really look awesome on the car.

One thing that I would say is that this one is definitely a lovely ride. The color is certainly something that I really like. And those set of wheels are also very cool looking.
