The CTS-V is one of the most tunable sedans money can buy, thanks to its Corvette-derived drivetrain and robust running gear. Its also quite practical as a daily driver. We visit well known tuner D3 to see how the CTS-V takes to their modifications.

The 900 HP Heffner Twin Turbo Lamborghini LP-560 -- TUNED
/Tuned goes to Sarasota to visit Heffner Performance, the first company to ever build a twin-turbo kit for the Lamborghini Gallardo. In a barely marked, unassuming suburban shop, Jason Heffner turns out some of the tuning world's craziest creations. His twin-turbo Lamborghini LP-560 seems so right, however, that we feel it should be standard equipment from the factory.

1,200-hp Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V Challenger to the BUGATTI
1,200-hp Hennessy Cadillac CTS-V Challenger to the BUGATTI!! John Hennessey's tuning shop in Texas operates on a simple principle that denies the existence of "too much horsepower." Here's his latest offering to the angry gods of speed -- a dozen Hennessey V1200 Cadillac CTS-V coupes, all of which offer more than double the power of their everyday lookalikes with a Bugatti-challenging 1,226 hp and a top speed of 242 mph. While the already sinister CTS-V makes due with 551 hp, Hennessey's transformation begins by swapping the engine with his tuned version of the 7-liter LS7 V-8, paired with twin turbos and bolstering of its internal parts. The system can be turned down to just 800 hp for those owners worried about how much trouble they could cause in a car capable of hitting 60 mph in under 3 seconds!! WHAT DO YOU THINK??
