Default Hennessey CTS? 707HP!

Wow, never knew they made one of these. When I think of Hennessey I think of Dodge Vipers lol. Must say, this is the craziest Cadillac I've ever seen! 707 HP, 701 ft-lbs torque, and it runs the quarter in 11 seconds. Amazing... Looks incredibly good too.

Saw that. Love the way onstar calls to see if everyone is OK. Pulled just shy of 1 G on the launch.

Oh haha, so maybe around $70k then. The regular CTS-V Series are pretty sweet too. They can beat most of the things on the road. Around where I live at least.

The CTS-V is due out this summer. From looking at what Cadillac says about it, as well as car reviews, that car will spank any production car from the factory and will give most performance cars on the street today a lesson in luxury *** whopping!

There'* no way they'd go for as low as $86k. I'm sure it'* in the $105k range.

Awesome kickass "more power than you can hook to the street" with all the luxuries of Top Caddy Class engineering. The V-700 is like my favorite cake with a double layer of frosting on top.
