Hennessey tuning pack gives Cadillac’s CTS-V a 707bhp, 211mph kick

The extra power is achieved by tinkering with the usual tuning suspects (engine management system, cam, induction, exhaust etc) and, we hope, the brakes.

See it in action during quarter-mile testing, complete with inappropriate emotive piano soundtrack:

Now share it...
