2013 Hennessey Cadillac VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe

Houston based supercar builder Hennessey Performance Engineering took a 
2013 Cadillac CTS-V, and converting it into the VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe.
The original 6.2-liter V-8 engine that cranks out 556 horsepower 
and 551 pound-feet of torque is replaced by a 7.0-liter V-8 engine. 
The new engine produces a massive 1,226 horsepower at 6,400 rpm 
and 1,109 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. 
With an astounding 242 mph top speed, 0-60 mph only takes 2.9 seconds. 

On the outside, silver grating on the upper and lower grilles is replaced 
with a more stealthy matte-black coating to give it a more sinister appearance.
The small bump in the center of the CTS-V’s hood is
drastically exaggerated with a carbon-fiber heat extractor.
Front and rear fender flares are replaced with much larger carbon-fiber units 
for the massive 20 x 10 inch rims under the front and 20 x 13 inch rims on the rear. 
On the inside, factory front seats are replaced with racing models 
with diamond-tufted center sections and the obligatory 6-point harnesses. 
Carbon-fiber inserts enhance the dashboard, center stack, center console, and door sills.
Also, on the inside a roll cage is installed to keep passengers safe. 
The roll cage also helps strengthen the rigidity of the entire chassis.
Only 12 units will be built. (
