This acclaimed supercar builder who crafts the already fast and exciting cars, turning them into a faster and powerful monsters, have now converted the already powerful ride Cadillac CTS-V into automotive world’s absolute freak, the VR 1200 Twin Turbo Coupe. Described to be one of the most powerful and fastest four-seat car available, the 2013 Hennessey VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe comes loaded with a de-tuned version of Hennessey’s Venom GT supercar engine, the VR1200’s 7.0L twin turbo V8 which produces incredible 1,224 bhp. Notably, just 12 examples will be produced, and each will feature impressive engine, interior, exterior, aerodynamics, suspension, and brake upgrades.
On the outside, Hennessey Performance have injected some serious attitude to this version, with a carbon-fiber front splitter which helps get a little downforce on the front end.
Further, a more stealthy matte-black coating gives the vehicle a more sinister appearance, and the carbon-fiber heat extractor keeps its massively powerful engine cool.
Designers at Hennessey Performance has also tuned the car’s interior, which now boasts a luxurious alcantara headliner, carbon-fiber inserts, leather upgrades, racing model seats with diamond-tufted center sections and the obligatory 6-point harnesses.
And, stitched into the headrests of the front seats are ‘Hennessey’, reminding the company which provide this fantastic machine. Also, the owner will get a set of premium Hennessey floor mats with the powerful 2013 Hennessey VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe.
On the engine side, the 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers 556 horsepower has been replaced by a 7.0 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 1,226 horsepower. Notably, the adjustable boost controller feature allows the rider to adjust the incredible horsepower between three settings, 800, 1,000, and 1,226.
The VR1200 tucks the massive 20 x 10 inch rims under the front and 20 x 13 inch rims on the rear, which are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports.
