Hennessey tuned Chevrolet Camaro Exorcist ready to cast out Demon(s)


Famous for its Lotus Exige-based Venom GT and Ford F150 Raptor derived VelociRaptor, renowned Houston, Texas tuner, Hennessey Performance Engineering, has unveiled its latest creation based on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

Limited to just 100 units a year, the tentatively named Exorcist, no doubt aimed directly at the forthcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, shares the regular ZL1's 6.2-litre LT4 supercharged V8, but adds a larger blower, upgraded intercooler, new camshafts, ported heads, beefed-up intake system and remapped ECU as well as bespoke exterior enhancements.

The end result is a 350 horsepower or 261 kW gain over the standard car for a total of 746 kW (1 000 horsepower) and an earth shattering 1 309 Nm of torque. According to Hennessey, the Exorcist will reach 100 km/h from standstill is less than three seconds, and although no top speed was revealed, expect it to be on the dark side of 320 km/h.

Prices for the Exorcist start at $55 000 ($755 040) excluding the $62 135 (R852 989) sticker price of the standard ZL1, while an optional Drag Pack, made up of a upgraded driveshaft, floor jack, tool kit and 20-inch Nitto drag tyres, will cost a further a $8 995 (R123 483).

A special Road Race Pack with 20-inch lightweight Hennessey wheel wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 will set buyers back a further $6 995 (R96 027), while those wanting an automatic gearbox will have to work out an additional $9 950 (R136 593) for an upgraded version of the ZL1's 10-speed automatic 'box.
