    The MP4-12C was phased out in favor of an updated version of the platform you all know as the 650S. That is not to say a stock MP4-12C is not potent as it definitely is. It's a tall order for any mid-size luxury sedan to take down on the highway even a modded one. This second generation Cadillac CTS-V is supercharged from the factory with the 6.2 liter LSA engine. It responds well to modification which it will need to move its portly butt to keep up with the 31XX pound MP4-12C. This LSA receives a higher boost boost pulley, a cam upgrade, drag radials, and most importantly E85 fuel. Nothing too crazy about the mod list there. They run twice and the CTS-V gets the better of the MP4-12C in the first run partially thanks to a better start. For whatever reason the second run is not shown from the CTS-V's view but instead we get a chase view. The first perspective is out of focus and in the second view it looks close with the MP4-12C edging. Either way this is a potent Cadillac considering the mods and all the MP4-12C needs is a tune to decisively put things in its favor.

    Just in time for July 4th, right? If American automotive culture can be represented by any one thing it is definitely V8 horsepower. The Americans simply make the most. Disagree? Well, you can talk to Steve Morris Engines about some of their builds like this absolutely absurd twin turbo big block. Absurd in a good way of course with 4000 horsepower on race gas and how about 3000 on pump? That 3000 figure comes at only 20 psi by the way. Who knows what it really does cranked up. Here are the specs: Cast BRODIX 5" bore-space block with in-house custom machining Premium SME piston package for big boost Billet crankshaft and aluminum connecting rods Custom cam profile Jesel belt-drive and MOROSO dry-sump oiling system INNOVATORS WEST balancer with integrated crank trigger Cast BRODIX cylinder heads with SME port program and modifications JESEL custom shaft-mouted rocker system Custom billet valve covers Fabricated (optional billet) intake manifold Competition machining and assembly Yes, this is street legal and goes into a street legal car. You might balk at the $63,999 price but the horsepower per dollar is unbeatable if you consider that 2000+ horsepower Underground Racing builds are six figures and that they will only make half the power. This is street legal performance on a whole different level. The video below covers the details directly from Steve Morris. Well worth a watch for any enthusiast. 'Merica!
