    John Hennessey is not a man known for restraint. The owner of the eponymous Texas-based speed shop crams hundreds of surplus horses into the drivelines of everything he touches, whether it’s pickup trucks, aHellcat-chasing 717-hp Mustang, or a menacing Jaguar F-type. Now, he’s promising to tune up the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V with a tidy half-ton of horses.

    Actually, Hennessey will offer three packages for the upcoming CTS-V. The first adds 110 new friends to the Caddy’s 640-horse stable, thanks to new supercharger pulleys, new cylinder heads, a custom cam, an intercooler, and the like. A midrange package offers 800 horsepower (although Hennessey’s website doesn’t explain where the extra 50 come from), and both of those packages come with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty, along with “premium floor mats,” which we’re sure are very nice.

    But if you’re really unsatisfied with the rocket Caddy’s stock offerings, you’ll want to open your wallet all the way and opt for the HPE1000 package. This baby ditches the supercharger for twin turbos and brings along brand-new everything: Aluminum pistons, a forged steel crank and rods, upgraded cylinder heads, and a beefed-up fuel system are just the start of things, and all the requisite tuning and fettling is included. At the half-ton horsepower level, Hennessey offers only a one-year/12,000-mile warranty, and it says ominously that transmission upgrades are “required.”

    They're asking for $100k. Show me one that sold for $100k. People are stupid, but not that stupid.

    I wouldn't let Hennessey tune my moped. Google Hennessey screws Viper owners.

    Wanting and getting are two totally different things. What a person or dealer wants doesn't mean they're going to get it.

    Pretty sure Hennessey is the guy that the Viper crowd would have nothing good to say about. He's also the douche that had a Hellcat and GM SUV race and they clearly jumped the start in the SUV to make it appear faster than it is. Hellcat blew it away but still....

    The part that gets me on all this is these companies want to play HP wars and supposedly build a race car, but the second they can blame a break on racing, you are footing the bill. Seems like I was always paying for my CTS because it wasn't covered.:confused: Interesting to see how it holds up.
