Since the redesign took place at Cadillac, the brand has assumed its rightful place near or at the top of the luxury car hierarchy.

They have restored to us the American Superpower Car. Hennessey emphasizes the point with this 1000-plus horsepower Caddy that looks more like a military craft (or way oversized ammunition!) than sports car. Not many will be made so get your order in early.

If you’re a collector interested in an investment car, this may definitely be of interest. Some additions in the redesign of the Cadillac include 1066 Rear Wheel HP and 964 Rear Wheel Torque.

The value of this gem will continually grow throughout the years — especially since they are only making 12 of them!

It’s a “once in a lifetime” offer!

Why would an Escalade owner would spend all that money for a luxury SUV and not add on a first-rate security system?

All they have to do is call a Viper dealer. Better than letting someone stroll off with your vehicle. See this, uh, alarming (or lack thereof) news report.

Pretty Crazy huh? Who would have thought it would have been that easy to dismantle a vehicle so it could just be pushed away by a pickup truck — and GONE in 14 seconds. Even worse, the fact that these vehicle are so easily stripped of all their luxury features. I guess OnStar won’t be much help when these things go missing.

Depending on which study you read, the Escalade may or may not be the top stolen vehicle. But according to the Highway Loss Data Institute it has “dominated the HLDI’s list for most theft claims” — which is what led GM to add various security enhancements.  Hopefully these new features will stop these SUV’s from being pushed away like shopping carts.
