When it came to naming their latest high powered Camaro, Hennessey Performance decided their usual formula of adding HPE and a number to the end of it just won’t cut it no more. So they looked into the character of the car and came up with Hennessey Camaro ZL1 EXORCIST. Now that’s more like it.
Fortunately, Hennessey Camaro ZL1 EXORCIST has enough substance to back up its lofty name which makes you expect a lot from it. What you got here started life as a 65- hp ZL1 which was then upgraded by Hennessey engineers to 1000 bhp @ 6,400 rpm and 966 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. The upgrade is done through a series of engine modifications, including a larger, higher flowing supercharger & intercooler system producing 14 psi of boost pressure, ported factory cylinder heads, camshaft upgrade, long-tube stainless steel headers, high-flow air induction system and custom engine management calibration.
Performance-wise, Hennessey Camaro ZL1 EXORCIST does 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds and running the ¼ mile in less than 10 seconds. And as for the price, the cost of the engine upgrade itself is $55,000 and if you opt for the automatic 10-speed tranny you’ll have to shell out another $9,950 for box upgrade. The optional drag pack includes a pair of 20 inch wheels with 315/30-20 Nitto drag radial tires, drive shaft upgrade, floor jack and tool kit at the cost of $8,995. The optional road race pack includes a set of 20 inch light weight Hennessey wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires at the cost of $6,995.
