For the Cadillac the team wanted a strong foundation to handle some serious power. So the factory chassis was rolled away for a custom one by the Roadster Shop. The chassis allowed for an A-arm independent front and four-link rear suspension. Finishing off with RideTech Shockwave air springs and Wilwood six-piston brakes on every corner.

The finishing touch is the Magnuson 2300 supercharger which contributes to the engine’s 975 horsepower and 913 lb-ft of torque.

    When I get back home I’m going to have to get by their shop. Can’t be more than twenty miles from my house, but have just been negligent and haven’t been by there…. That is one sweet ride, but I would have started with a coupe….lol
