Toyo Tires recently announced three of their four 2011 SEMA booth vehicles, choosing to keep the fourth one a secret… until now. Toyo Tires has teamed up with D3 Cadillac to show off a special edition 2012 CTS-V Coupe dubbed “Le Monstre” packing in excess of 1,001-hp and 1,001 lb-fts of torque.
D3 Cadillac is well-known for their Cadillac tuning programs, having the world’s only full line of products from power kits to competition track ready suspension kits to fully functional aerodynamic components. Le Monstre features D3′s competition proven powertrain, competition suspension package and complete wide body conversion.
The nickname pays homage to the 1950 Cadillac Coupe Series 61 that was built to compete in the 24 Hours of LeMans. 2011 marks the 61st anniversary since that historic 1950 event.
D3 Cadillac looks forward to putting Le Monstre onto the track in 2012, competing in various Time Attack events and showing off what they can do with the Cadillac platform.
