The 1,000-horsepower Camaro Exorcist is ready to chase Demons!
Just 100 of the provocative cars will be offered annually. This should give you plenty of time to try to send those Demons back where they came from.

Hennessey Performance pre-empted next week's launch of the hotly anticipated launch of the Dodge Demon drag racing-optimized muscle car with the announcement of the Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro. Both the name and Hennessey's press release make it clear the car is designed to be the anti-Demon. That may not come across visually, since on the surface it's just a standard Camaro ZL1 with decals. But underneath is an LT4 V8 tuned to 1,000 horsepower and 966 lb-ft of torque. Coupled with drag tires, Hennessey claims the Exorcist is good for a 0-60 mph time of under 3 seconds and a quarter-mile time of under 10 seconds.

 

 

The complete package, including the Exorcist decals, rings in at $55,000 – and that's on top of the Camaro ZL1 you have to supply. Unless you already have one or picked up a used or discounted example, the least you'll pay for an Exorcist is just over $118,000. And if you want Hennessey to upgrade an automatic, you'll be spending another $9,950 to upgrade the transmission. On the plus side, it's going to be an exclusive vehicle, with only 100 built each year. The company offers a couple of options, too. For $8,995 you can get a drag pack with two wheels shod in Nitto drag tires along with a floor jack, tool kit, and upgraded driveshaft. And if track driving is more your style, the road race pack comes with a set of lightweight wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for $6,995.

 

 

The Hennessey Exorcist is certainly an impressive sports car. And the video of it smoking tires is certainly entertaining. However, it's probably still worth waiting a week before ordering one to see what the Challenger Demon will be like. And if you're a bow-tie booster, you may still want to wait, since the ZL1 1LE is on its way and will likely be the better road course toy – though the Exorcist would likely stomp it on the drag strip. The Exorcist will make a parallel public debut when it is unveiled in its home state of Texas at the Houston Auto Show while the Demon is introduced at the New York International Auto Show.
