Hennesey introduced the 1,000-hp Cadillac CTS-VDecember 14, 2018
Already in 2019, the Cadillac CTS and CTS-V models will leave the market and will be replaced by the CT5 model on the Alpha 2 platform. However, Hennesey proves that it is not worthwhile to discount the model and finished the sedan to 1,000 hp.
Some customers are not satisfied with the “low-power” 6.2-liter V8 Cadillac CTS-V engine, capable of developing up to 640 horsepower and 870 Nm of torque. Therefore, the tuners from Hennesey decided to prove that the Cadillac should not be discounted, and the sedan is able to surprise. So, the line of completions of HPE750, HPE800, and also HPE1000 was presented. As the name implies – it is now engine forcing.
The most powerful version is capable of developing up to 1000 horsepower and 1,310 Nm of torque. The increased engine power required the development of an automatic transmission, as well as the use of 93-octane Shell V-Power gas exclusively of Pennzoil Ultra Platinum synthetic oil. Of course, the ECU software has also undergone major improvements.
Acceleration to 100 km/h now takes only 2.9 seconds, and a quarter mile can be driven in 10.5 seconds, speeding up to 217 km / h.
It is separately noted that despite the grandiose improvements, Hennesey offers customers a two-year warranty or 38,600 km of run.
