Hennessey VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe runs 220.5 mph on a newly built section of the SH130 toll road near Austin, Texas for a full 1.75 miles and becomes the fastest Cadillac CTS-V in the world.
Runs were made on a closed course with a professional driver.Could have gone faster but they ran out of road.This Caddy has 1200 Horsepower. Later, Hennessey is planning a record run for the 275 mph Venom GT supercar.
Back in the 1970's, in my late Teens, I remember Lamborghini was
trying, without success, to get the Countach to break 200 mph. And now a
guy blows by it by over 20 mph IN A CADILLAC?! Technology really does march on.
