Ride of the Week: The 2017 Camaro ZL1 Hennessey Exorcist

In what’s sure to be a response to the Dodge Demon, Hennessy Performance just introduced their newest super muscle car, dubbed The Exorcist. The ride is based on the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and, of course, leave it up to the Texas-based aftermarket specialists to bring this already powerful ride into the stratosphere.

We’re not making this up either. Under the hood of this thing is a modified Chevy LT4 V8 engine now boasting an incredible output of 1,000 hp and 966 lb-ft of torque. Such intense power can be attributed to a larger and higher flowing supercharger and intercooler system that produces 14 psi of boost pressure. The Exorcist also hosts a high-flow air induction system, long tube stainless steel headers, and a camshaft upgrade. It rides atop two drag radial tires in the rear and does 0-60mph in under 3 seconds. Buyers also have the option to have their rides delivered at the Hennessy 1/4 mile dragstrip so they can legally test out the power behind this monstrous machine. Prices for the upgrade start at $55,000.
