    • Hennessey's VR1200 twin turbo Cadillac CTS-V wagon shows 1058 wheel horsepower on a Dyno Dynamics

      Hennessey's VR1200 package for the Cadillac CTS-V includes a 427 cubic inch built LSA V8 and the factory supercharger is ditched for a pair of turbochargers (model not specified). The package is limited to 12 vehicles for whatever reason (artificial exclusivity) and that comes with a Hennessey level price of $295,000. No, seriously.


      The entire package includes more than engine upgrades (although if you want to upgrade the automatic transmission to handle the torque output that is an extra $20k) but considering CaddyBoost members are making more power than this for far less than $295,000 this package is for people with more money than sense just like basically everything Hennessey offers.

      The 1058 wheel is achieved on a Dyno Dynamics dynamometer and considering Hennessey claims 1066 Dynojet horsepower this Dyno Dynamics is set to read a bit high. Absolutely no doubt whatsoever it's making the power the only question is why anyone wouldn't opt for other tuners who are making much more power for far less money (and with a better reputation).

        It's a joke but when you see casual people reading about this they are stating it's a bargain compared to things like an Aventador or 458 Italia.

        I just put my face in my palm.
