Harold Martin Motorsports has wrung out the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe to an earth-shattering 1,000 horsepower and put it on parade at the 2011 SEMA Show. The tuner shop based out of Michigan has fitted the Caddy with a supercharged 7.0-litre V8 providing the four digit horsepower figure at 7,100 rpm as well as an equally astonishing 1,220 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle was fabricated with a custom intercooler setup, an aggressive body kit, stainless steel high flow exhausts and 22-inch chromies.
The performance numbers remind us greatly of the Hennessey Twin-Turbo CTS-V Coupe, however this is a whole different language of forced induction at play. According to Harold Martin Motorsports, the coupe can reach 60 mph in as little as 3.5 seconds. They also shared with us that it is capable of completing the quarter mile in 10.9 seconds and has a top speed of 320 km/h.
