Those who haven’t experienced the wonderful sensation of putting the accelerator pedal of a high-power vehicle to the floor to (safely) reach triple-digit speeds should definitely do so at least once in their life. But if that’s not in the cards just yet, this video — which shows the instrument cluster of the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V doing just that at the hands of Hennessey Performance Engineering — should suffice for now.
The CTS-V’s 6.2L supercharged LT4 V8 and its 640 ponies sound amazing as they propel the midsize luxury rocket to from zero to:
- 60 mph in a mere 4.3 seconds
- 100 mph in 8 seconds flat
- 126.3 mph for a quarter mile of 12.1 seconds
- 150 mph in 17.6 seconds
The standing half mile comes in at 153.3 mph, and the standing mile is at 176.5 mph on to a top speed of 188.7 mph as recorded by the Racelogic VBox GPS system, though the Cadillac‘s instrument cluster read 190.
Henessey says that it will soon mod the car, which runs 12 psi stock, for increased power and performance, and we’ll be here to bring you just that when the tuning firm makes it available.
