Hennessey Sets Cadillac CTS-V Standing Mile Record

Europeans love wagons. Americans... hmm... not so much. However, US tuner Hennessey is making everything it can to popularize these family vehicles.
For example. John Hennessey, the head of the company, drives one every day. However, don’t think that this is hard for him in any way, as we are talking about a Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon, obviously inappropriately touched by the aftermarket developer.

However, the man is working hard: last weekend, for example, he risked missing dinner with his family in order to take the car out and set a new standing mile CTS-V world record.

The 700 hp Hammer Wagon was taken to the Texas Mile event, where it recorded a time of 189.7 mph (305.4 km/h). That’s about as fast as a stock Corvette ZR1. After the feat, he filled the car with gas pump and drove 175 miles (281 km) home.
