Challenge Accepted? The Hennessey Cadillac Packs 1,226 HP

It is no secret that John Hennessey creates some of the most aggressive speed demons out there. It is also never understated that Hennessey loves to compete, and is vying to get Bugatti to line up on the track next to his latest invention: a 1,226 horsepower Cadillac CTS-V coupe. Yes, a Caddy with more horses under the hood than the world’s fastest car, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The official name is the Cadillac VR1200 and it may not exactly belong in our list of cars that appear fast even when parked, it certainly is noteworthy.

Will Bugatti ever accept Hennessey’s invitations for a race? Or will Bugatti avoid competing in attempts to cling to their title?

While Bugatti certainly cannot hide from Hennessey forever, they have succeeded thus far. So what is all of the rivalry revolving around? It is simple: Everyone wants to be the world’s fastest supercar for as long as possible.

For those that enjoy rooting for the underdog, Hennessey is a hit.

Hennessey has been busy testing the robust Caddy’s on Ellington Field in Houston, Texas. To put things into an awesome perspective, the twin turbo 7-liter V8 Hennessey Cadillac is just as powerful as some jet engines. That is face-slapping, jaw-dropping power. That is what happens when a mind like Hennessey’s gets his hands on a car.

Specs for the standard CTS-V Cadillac
• 6.2-liter V8 engine
• 556 horses
• 0-60 in 3.9 seconds (that is a fast family car!)

Specs for the Cadillac VR1200:
• 7-liter V8 engine
• 1,226 horses
• 0-60 in 2.9 seconds
