2013 VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe


Unlike car makers, tuners usually have no boundaries. And that can result in some amazing cars, like this one right here. The 2013 VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe is made by Hennessey Performance based on the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, and it is the true definition of a monster car.

The thing has a 1,200 horsepower 7.0 liter V8 engine – well 1,226 to be more precise – and over a 100 lb-ft of torque. Those ridiculous numbers result in crazy performance with a 0 to 60 time of 2.9 seconds and top speed of 242 mph. It’s got more power than the Veyron, so why you might be wondering it’s not just as fast. Well, blame that on aerodynamics, drivetrain, tires, weight, and a million other things!

The car also gets a unique body kit that screams its inner power, new wheels and tires, new brakes, new suspension, and a modified interior. Hennessey will only make only 12 units of this awesome machine.
