Procharged Cadillac CTS-V Sets 1/4-Mile World Record with Amazing 9.05s Pass

Mention the name of the Cadillac CTS-V at the drag strip and you'll see a lot of hats being tipped. The slab of GM has built an uber-solid reputation in the drag racing realm, with most of the credit going to the second generation of the sedan. Then again, the third-gen CTS-V is getting fiercer by the season and we're here to show you most badass Gen 3 machine out there.

The Caddy has recently hit the drag strip, with the four-door proving its might in the quarter-mile. To be more precise, the CTS-V managed to play the 1,320 feet sprint in 9.4 seconds, with the machine's trap speed sitting at 149 mph.

The piece of footage below showcases the said run, while also allowing us to notice the time slip of the speeding toy.

Gone is the factory supercharged of the Cadillac, with the 6.2-liter V8 of the machine now using a Procharger (this is a belt-driven turbo).

When asked about the rest of the vehicle's tech setup on Instagram, the owner delivered a swift reply, mentioning that the transmission, rear differential and suspension come in stock form.

Speaking of the owner, this aficionado likes to take things step by step, pushing the stock components to the limit before replacing them with aftermarket bits.

In fact, the man owns a host of American go-fast toys, as he has a passion for street cars taken to extreme lengths. For instance, he's also the one behind the wheel of the quickest 2018 Ford Mustang GT out there.

We've shown you the said pony earlier today, albeit with the 'Stang having engaged in street racing. The muscle car now packs a twin-turbo setup, one that allows it to deliver twice the factory output.

And, as is the case with the Cadillac CTS-V that brought us here, things won't stop here.
