220 MPH on new TX SH 130

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012/...ntcmp=features

Well that was fast.

A Cadillac CTS-V has become the first car to break 200 mph on Texasí new 85 mph highway.

And the cops approve!

But just this one time.

Hennessey Performance, builders of some of the fastest custom cars on the planet, including the 275 mph Venom GT, offered up one of their 1,200 hp Cadillac coupes to test the cameras fitted to the automated toll system on the brand new SH-130 toll road, which boasts the highest speed limit in the nation at 85 mph.

The run took place on Tuesday, the day before the highway opened to the public, on a closed stretch of the road south of Lockhart with safety crews ready at hand.

With a professional test driver behind the wheel, the car passed by the cameras at over 180 mph which posed no problem for them getting a photo of its license plate.

Although it doesnít issue speeding tickets, toll jumpers who donít have the proper tag affixed to their car get a violation sent to them in the mail. Apparently itís not just the law you canít outrun, but also the DOT.

Of course, with all of that open road available the driver wasnít about to slam on the brakes. Hennessey tells FoxNews.com that his man kept his foot in it for a full 1.75 miles, hitting a top speed of 220.5 mph. At that rate, he couldíve driven the entire length of the highway from San Antonio to Austin in just about 12 minutes.

Just don't try that on the way home, you're being watched.

The sales guy at Cadillac was telling my son about this a few months ago, saying it was the fastest American car in production, beating the Corvette. Needless to say my son was super impressed, he has a CTS, but not the V.
