We love a good sleeper here at GM Authority. There’s something about a brute force of power to come from something so unsuspecting. Especially when it’s 1,216 hp and 1,078 lb-ft of torque. From a second-generation Cadillac CTS-V.
That’s just what we have here today. LSXtv reports this particular CTS-V is owned by Rob Sutton, and immediately after he purchased it, he set out to build the fastest six-speed manual CTS-V in the world. We’re happy to report he most certainly has. And he uses a stock bottom end.
Back in April, Sutton claimed the record for fastest quarter-mile time and quickest CTS-V in the world, using that stock bottom end. And now we have dyno footage of the car being tuned by Vengeance Racing, where they added a custom Vengeance Racing camshaft, ZL1 supercharger lid, Alky Control methanol kit, ported blower and snout by Vengeance Racing and a 102-mm Nick Williams throttle body. Though, the build list goes on, and on.
The car sounds absolutely mad as the engine screams to put down all of its power, so take a look for yourself right down below.
