Reminds me of an 80s VW Corado that's spent too much time with Lance Armstrong!

Love how aggressive the Cadillacs look.

Hennessey are insane when it comes to creating POWER, but I've always wondered how reliable these tuned-up muscle cars are.

But does it go around corners? :twisted:


There is a vicar in UK who does funerals on a Bike outfit. Quite fancy it my self. I bet there would be a waiting list if that did 'deliveries'.

Get lots done in one day though

2 things come to mind watching that,

- its painful watching him change gear, is that cause he's a bad driver or cause its badly made?
- if he did still have 6th gear to play with, why not alter the ratios to use all 6 and give faster acceleration?

Does look good though, in a proper American muscle kinda way.

I'd imagine they are prototypes that are sold for the road :S

1. Its a manual gearbox built to handle 1066hp ... you cant get a toyota gearbox in there or it will be ripped to shreds, it has to be built strong.
2. Its essentially a production car, anyone can go buy one and they are road legal, not race cars. So they have to have a long 6th gear for fuel economy. MOST high hp GM cars 6th gear is for fuel economy only. My vette hits top speed in 5th, I cruise at 75mph at 1500rpm in 6th and get 30mpg.

I like the new CTS-V's but I would be too worried about the hennessey just due to reliability. Whenever you take a car and double the original hp there are going to be reliability issues pop up.
