Hennessey Performance Engineering has rolled out this video of the supercharged Cadillac Escalade HPE800 being tested at the track and on the dyno. With 637.07 horsepower and 644.44 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, this 2016 Escalade will get you to where you’re going in no time at all. Just don’t call it a Cadillac Escalade-V.
We’re still not used to the image of an Escalade hauling ass with a gnarly exhaust note, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like it. In fact, we’d love to drive it. Would we spend money on such a thing? If we were obscenely rich and always in a hurry, sure.
What’s your take on the big, mean, loud luxury SUV? Is it what the world needs more of, or is it a little too unorthodox for your taste? Give us your thoughts in the comment section below.
