The tap that held all the 1,000 horsepower engines in has been released and more and more of them are finding their way into spectacular vehicles making their way to the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The latest monster that’s able to terrorize the Nevada crowd at its whim is the Cadillac CTS-V Le Monstre.
The creation of “The D3 Group” boasts something that should impress any visitor, even if he’s a Mustang fan. The stock 564 hp 6.2-liter LSA V8 that all Cadillac cars boast has been increased to 7.0-liter (427 cubic-inches) and featuring upgraded components. The end result is a staggering 1,0001 hp and 1,000 lb. ft. of torque.

On the cosmetic side, it’s also supposed to have a set of 20-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes T1R UHP summer tires size 275/30ZR20 at the front and 345/25ZR20 at the rear. They make a really strong racing statement in combination with the matte black wrap by Wraptivo and a custom wide-body exterior.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
