Hennessey has announced their latest creation. It is an insane 2013 Hennessey Cadillac VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe, where "VR1200" stands for the number of the horsepower.

The 7.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 produces 1226HP (914 kW) at 6400RPM and 1501Nm (1109 lb-ft) at 4000RPM. 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 389 km/h (242 mph). ¼ mile in 10.2 seconds with 227 km/h (141 mph) terminal speed. The gearbox is manual 6-speed, but with Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch Upgrade to handle all that torque.

Will produce just 12 units, but actually the tuned will offer this VR1200 package for CTS-V sedans and wagons.

Just imagine a station wagon Cadillac with more than 1200HP under the hood!
