The fastest Cadillac we've ever driven wears a V badge on its rear end. Its engine produces 556 horsepower and the car has a top speed of 190 miles per hour. There's no doubt it's one of the fastest cars available right now... but not quite fast enough for Spectre Performance. The team at Spectre is trying to break a speed record and they've employed Cadillac power to do so. The Spectre Performance Speedliner Bonneville Land Speed Racer boasts a 529 cubic-inch turbocharged Caddy V8 engine, which has been shoehorned into the sleek body of this highly engineered salt flats speedster.
The Speedliner, with its Cadillac mill, was able to hit 336 miles per hour during Bonneville Speed Week earlier in the year – a mind-numbing speed that is still short of the team's goal. Well short, in fact, as the team hopes to reach a magical 400 mph. Clearly, this is one of the few cars at SEMA 2010 that is all-show and all-go. Check it out for yourself in the gallery below.
*UPDATE: Our contrarian emeritus, Jonny Lieberman, passed along a tip that the Spectre Speedliner hit 409 miles per hour at Bonneville. Congrats!
