2016 Cadillac CTS-V HPE750 by Hennessey
Texas tuner Hennessey Performance's new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V performance packages once again blend the company's penchant for power with a more refined, luxurious package. Only this time, they are faster and more luxurious.
With 750 horsepower under its hood, the supercharged HPE750 upgrade package offers a nice boost over the direct-from-the-showroom version's 640 ponies.
To get to that point, the Houston-based firm made some modifications to the stock supercharger's pulley system and added a high-performance induction setup, long-tube stainless steel headers, stainless steel mid-pipes, high-flow catalytic converters, and an upgraded intercooler. Standing out from most tuned cars, the CTS-V includes a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty.
Other items in the package include serial-numbered badges and special floor mats, while H10 monoblock wheels are available as an option.
The company also offers 800- and 1,000-horsepower modifications. Still, 750 ponies from the Cadillac's supercharged V-8 engine is nothing to scoff at, as the video's tire-burning antics reveal.
The HPE750 kit is an especially subtle way to blow the doors off of just about anything else on the road. Hennessey quotes a 3.2-second 0 to 60 mph time and a quarter mile run that is completed in just 11.2 seconds at 131 mph. If you can find a legal place to do it, the HPE750-equipped CTS-V will top out at 210 mph.
