Le Monstre features a 427 CID engine fed by a 3.6L supercharger system cranking out 1,001-horsepower and 1,000 lb.ft. of torque. The D3 Le Monstre is a tribute to the 1950 Cadillac Coupe Series 61 (that car dubbed Le Monstre by the French media), which competed in the 1950 24 Hours of LeMans, piloted by American driver Briggs Cunningham. The car will compete in Time Attack during the 2012 road racing season.

The D3 Cadillac Tuning Program is the world’s only full line tuning program for Cadillac. D3 cars are known for delivering startling amounts of horsepower with incredible performance, Toyo said. Many of the company’s tuned Cadillac vehicles use Toyo Proxes UHP tires.

Corp. “The addition of this remarkable D3 Cadillac helps demonstrate the quality, performance capabilities, and diverse range of fitments manufactured into our line of Toyo tires.”

In addition to The D3 Le Monstre, the Toyo Tires booth will debut three other vehicles: the WALD F10 Black Bison, the Street Concepts Ford F-150 Raptor, and the Dodge Durango Heat Edition 4×4.
