Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V HPE750 Specifications
Power and Specs
Respectfully as mentioned before, the upgraded trim still uses the same engine, supercharged V8 6.2 liter engine. It originally produces up to 640 hp with 630 lb ft torque performance. With HPE750 upgrade, this engine now produces even better output, 757 hp with 782 lb ft torque performance. Better output is also made for the acceleration that reaches 60 mph only within 3.2 seconds, and top speed that reaches up to 210 mph. This 2016 Cadillac CTS-V HPE750 car was real good and it is super good now. Now we can call this a powerful speedy sedan. Hennessey was reported to develop even 1,000 hp power output, but there is no further information related to this enhancement.
Exterior and Interior
The main idea of the upgrade sticks to the engine only, and these guys leave the whole exterior and interior details alone. The exterior of New 2016 Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V HPE750 resembles the original trim that features the same headlights as in previous model. Narrowed grille with new mesh pattern, enlarged air dam, reshaped side intakes, carbon fiber splitter, redesigned hood, optimized suspension, lower ground clear, and other details remain the same.
The interior is not upgraded as well. It remains the same cabin with performance oriented features and a little poor looking, especially when we compare it with the competitors, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and BMW M5. However, the features and tech added in the cabin is already pleasing so it shouldn’t be too disappointing at all.
Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V HPE750 Release Date and Price
There is no detail mentioned about the release date so far, but we should expect it to be ready as soon as the original trim is on the market. This means sooner. The price remains uninformed as well. We should consider a little raise from the original trim price which is $83,955.
In sum, this upgrades makes serious change driver can brag about. The acceleration now beats what Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the up most competition of the original trim, acceleration rate. We must admit, this is a perfect car. Maybe, the offered price will influence driver’s choice eventually between the original team or the new upgraded 2016 Cadillac CTS-V HPE750.
