Next year shall be the last year for the Cadillac CTS-V after being in production for nearly 15 years.

The original Cadillac CTS-V had a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine that could produce 640 hp and a top speed of 200 mph.
0-62 mph (0-100km/h) just took 3.7 seconds which isn't that bad. Hennessey instead is offering a 1000hp upgrade package.
But to do this they had to upgrade many things including the automatic transmission and the car needs to run on 93-octane gasoline. The supercharger used has ported cylinder heads, upgraded valves, valve springs, a more monstrous camshaft profile, retainers and a high-flow inter-cooling system.
Thanks to those upgrades they now enable the Cadillac CTS-V to reach 0-60 mph (0-100km/h) in 2.9 seconds and a quarter mile 10.5 seconds with a top speed of 135 mph.
The interior will have branded Hennessey floor mats and serial-numbered dash. While the exterior will have special badges and engine plagues. Theses insane upgrades are currently available for all 2016-2018 CTS-Vs with a 2 year (24,00 mile) limited warranty.
The upgrades of the Cadillac CTS-V also has gone through multiple Dyno tuning and testing to make sure everything functions correctly.
