220.5 mph on a Texas highway... Smokie approves?

You buckled up in there?
This follows up my post about the new stretch of Texas highway where you can legally haul-it at 85 mph...

High-performance tuner John Hennessey found a way to show off one of his latest projects and help the Texas Department of Public Safety test some of  some of their equipment at the same time.

...Texas authorities let him take a full-speed blast down the state's newest
toll road outside Austin that opened today, one that features an
85-mph speed limit. It's just long enough for the 1,200-hp,
twin-turbo Cadillac CTS-V coupe to hit 220.5 mph.”

...might have done 230 mph had he been granted another mile of tarmac.”

Man, talk about haulin' it!
