2011 Cadillac CTS-V Hennessey V700 runs low 11's

In the world of automotive performance, the shelf name "Hennessey" rings the performance bell unlike any other. It doesn't matter who the competition is, if you briefly mention the name Hennessey it will instantly draw attention. Known for high performance quality builds, the Hennessey V700 performance package for the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V is keeping up with the tradition of mind blowing performance. Taking a luxury car and converting it into an almost ten second car that can be daily driven is an acoustical and visual treat for the driver and audiences abroad. In the latest quarter mile test, the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V with the Hennessey V700 performance package ran an amazing 11.16 quarter mile time at a blistering 124 miles per hour. Move over Grandma, this Cadillac is for the gearheads.

The Hennessey V700 package is a moderate yet aggressive build that yields 707 horsepower at 6,300 RPM's and 701 foot pounds of torque at just 3,400 RPM's. It's so powerful, that at times it will trip the OnStar crash system as seen here. Accomplished by increasing the efficiency of the Cadillac air machine, the V700 package sounds and looks just as good as the dyno numbers. Modifications such as an HPE cold air induction system, supercharger pulley and snout upgrade, HPE ECU tune, long tube headers and three inch mid pipe exhaust, high flow catalytic converters, intercooler upgrade, larger cam and high flow heads, and a 160 degree thermostat drastically improve the overall vehicle experience. If you sum up the modifications, Hennessy has basically improved the efficiency of the engines intake and exhaust with a more aggressive tune to take advantage of these changes.
