Cadillac CTS-V Wagon Has A Rear Turbo, Makes 1,700 HP
The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is a legend among car enthusiasts combining a supercharged V8, 6-speed manual transmission and the practicality of a station wagon, making it the ultimate car for almost any occasion. The passion for CTS-V Wagons continues to grow as many enthusiasts research these unique cars and then modify them for even more performance. One of these owners decided to turn his CTS-V station wagon into a high speed track racer and the results are astounding.
From the factory, the CTS-V wagon is powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 engine that produces an output of 556 horsepower (414 kW) and torque of 551 lb-ft (747 nm). For many, that’s more than enough power, but for others, it’s just the start. Take for example the CTS-V Wagon featured in today’s video which is a fully built cage racing car ready to tackle any straight line speed event.
This CTS-V Wagon started out as a production car, which then evolved into a dual-charge monster with an output of 1,200 horsepower (894 kW). After a while this horsepower was not sufficient, so the supercharger was removed to allow the 106mm turbocharger mounted at the rear to boost this CTS-V Wagon to 1,700 horsepower (1193 kW). This is an extremely impressive aftermarket build to turn a reasonably fast wagon into a shameful supercar missile. This is a clean build that has been built and designed by experts and the results speak for themselves.
With a 6-speed manual transmission and enough horsepower to pull a ship through the Panama Canal, this CTS-V Wagon is a spectacular build. A 200 mph wagon isn’t something that happens every day and we’re happy to see this build reach new heights of performance.
