Hennessey Performance 2009 Cadillac CTS-V - Click above for a high-res image gallery

As far as we can tell, John Hennessey and his crew have somehow warped time and space to create the 36-hour workday. With all the products the Texas-based tuner is coming out with, there's no other explanation. So in addition to creating the 705-hp Corvette ZR700, 715-hp GTR700 and a duo of force-fed Camaros, Hennessey has decided to tackle the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V – and in the process created a four-door ZR1.

The team is releasing four complete packages for Caddy's M5-fighter, ranging from a 610 hp version all the way to a twin-turbocharged 800 hp variant. You can check out each package, including horsepower, torque, mods and performance times, along with corresponding videos, after the jump. And we've also got a gallery of the fire-breathing CTS-V below.

      goddamn that car is ugly. Cadillacs are so 19th century....
        • 5 Years Ago
        I don't think there were many (if any) cars on the streets in the 19th century! Maybe a couple Duryeas or Benzes?

        Better lay off the pollen...............and the methane gas, it's deadly.............
        • 5 Years Ago
        Are you serious? I think the new CTS-V's look fantastic.
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's an awesome pic. I think you've been sniffing too much "pollen". LOL
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think someone doesn't know how numbers work.

        19th Century = 1800s

      Hennessey is a bastard, but who cares? Is anyone on this forum buying anything from this man? This is about the car, and you can't deny that this CTS-V he's making isn't an extremely fast car.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Correction: The one he's making for himself is a very fast car.

        Everyone else gets screwed and their car stripped for parts.

      Damn you for this autoblog. Stop.
      • 5 Years Ago
      The 2009 CTS-V is definitely a superb piece of machinery, but Hennessey is a crook.

      • 5 Years Ago
      Why does everyone complain about Hennessey? I'm not on their side I just don't know much about them. All I hear is they are cheaters, etc.
