    2016 Hennessey CTS-V

    When the next generation Cadillac CTS-V hits the streets later this year, it will have 640+ hp and a top speed of nearly 200 mph. To the team at Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), this is a good starting point. The company plans to pick-up where they left off with the last gen CTS-V by producing the world’s fastest 4-door sedan: The Hennessey HPE1000 Twin Turbo CTS-V.

    “A couple of years ago, the State of Texas gave us the opportunity to test one of our specially tuned CTS-Vs – our VR1200 Twin Turbo coupe. It ran 221 mph (356 km/h) on State Highway 130, near the Circuit of the Americas”, said company founder, John Hennessey. “It was still pulling on when we ran out of road. I believe that our 2016 Twin Turbo CTS-V will have a top speed approaching 240 mph (386 km/h)”.

    Hennessey plans to offer a limited run of only 24 units for the 2016 model year. Powered by a strengthened 6.2L V8 engine, the company will remove the factory supercharger and will add twin turbos for increased power and performance. HPE also plans to offer a full compliment of performance upgrades including carbon-ceramic brakes, larger wheels and tires, widebody upgrade allowing for wider tires as well as custom interior upgrades.

    “I’ve owned and driven several Cadillac CTS-Vs over the past 5 years”, said John. “I love the practicality and the ease of driving these cars every day. They are also a great platform from which we can create our own special 4-door supercar.”

    HPE also plans to offer a wide array of performance upgrades for the 2016 CTS-V. This will include engine packages that deliver 750-800 hp from the factory supercharged V8 engine.
