What do you get when you pack Twin Ball Bearing Turbochargers into a Cadillac Escalade? You get a total of 1008-hp at 5,900 rpm with a maximum torque of 967 lb-ft of torque. That gives you the ability to beat Godzilla – the 2011 Nissan GT-R – itself.

The Hennessey HPE1000 Twin Turbo Upgrade package ends up giving the Cadillac Escalade the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and the ability to run the quarter mile in 11.3 seconds at 124 mph.

Of course, there may be no need for that much power in a Escalade but it does give you bragging rights at red light.

Check out a video of the Hennessey HPE1000 Twin Turbo Cadillac Escalade beating the Nissan GT-R after the jump.
