2013 Hennessey VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe (Mythic)
Houston-based Hennessey Performance Engineering, established in 1991, got name worldwide thanks to its crazy Venom GT. Anyway, differently from what some could think, this is not a brand based only on one model and the VR1200 proves it. In 2012, on October 23rd, a test was held on a Texas Road for some journalists; stars were the HPE700 LS9 Camaro and an astonishing VR1200, based on a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. The latter managed to reach 354,8 Km/h, even though its max speed is 390 Km/h. Its power is raised to 1226 HP with 1109 lb-ft of torque: this makes the car able to reach 100 Km/h in 2.9s. The car has been lowered 1” from the stock CTS-V, while the use of carbon fiber on both exterior (front splitter, rear diffuser, front fenders, extractor hood and fender flares) and interior has made it possible to reduce the weight from the standard 1928 Kg. Only 12 VR1200 will be produced, during 2013, all with Hennessey badges (the Cadillac badge will remain, however) at a cost of 295000$.
