Hennessey Performance Texas tuners still are enthusiastic and strive for perfectionism. It is enough to remember 1000-horsepower Cadillac Escalade HPE1000 Twin Turbo, accelerating to 60 miles / h (96 km / h) in 3.3 seconds! For several years Hennessey specialists are working on the idea of the fastest sedan in the world.

“Several years ago, Texas gave us the opportunity to test on the road one of the specifically tuned CTS-V – coupe VR1200 Twin Turbo. He showed 356 km / h. I believe that our new 2016 CTS-V Twin Turbo will show the maximum speed 386 km / h (240 miles / h), “- says John Hennessey, the company’s founder.

CTS-V HPE1000 Twin Turbo new generation, which will be the basis of the project, will receive some changes: a 6.2-liter V8 engine will lose a mechanical supercharger, and in return it will receive two turbines, making the output rise from 640 to 1000 hp. Additionally, it will get a forged pistons, modified cylinder head, intercooler, sports exhaust system, ceramic brakes and a modified bottom perimeter of the body with wider wheelbase.

Monster will be presented by the end of the year and will release an edition of 24 copies.
