A Fitting Farewell to Chevrolet’s Powerhouse
Hennessey Performance, the Texas-based hypercar giant, has unveiled its swansong for the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – the EXORCIST ‘Final Edition’. This limited series is a tribute to Chevrolet’s legendary high-performance pony car, marking its end of production.
From 650 to 1,000 Horsepower
The standard Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is no slouch, boasting a 6.2-litre supercharged LT4 V8 with 650 hp. But Hennessey, with over three decades of experience in ‘making fast cars faster’, has taken it to the next level.
Their technicians have equipped the Camaro with a larger supercharger, enhanced air induction system, and a series of upgrades ranging from the fuel system to the cylinder heads. The result? A staggering 1,000 horsepower and 966 lb-ft of torque. That’s a whopping 54% increase in power and a 49% rise in torque.
Performance That’ll Leave You Awestruck
With all these enhancements, the EXORCIST ‘Final Edition’ is a true speed demon. It can rocket from 0-60 mph in just 2.1 seconds, complete a quarter-mile in 9.57 seconds, and reach a top speed of 217 mph. These figures aren’t just impressive; they’re mind-blowing.
The Dodge Demon Rivalry Continues
The EXORCIST was originally conceived in 2017 to outshine the Dodge Demon and its 840 hp output. Fast forward to today, Dodge has upped its game with the Challenger SRT Demon 170, boasting 1,025 hp. But the EXORCIST ‘Final Edition’, designed for both the racetrack and everyday roads, is ready for the challenge.
John Hennessey, the brains behind the brand, shared his enthusiasm: “The Camaro ZL1 upgrade is one of my all-time favourites. Everything about the car, from its chassis to its powerplant, works in perfect harmony. The EXORCIST is truly one of a kind, and we’re thrilled to present this limited edition to the car’s aficionados.”
Special Touches for a Special Edition
Every EXORCIST ‘Final Edition’ comes with a unique engine bay plaque, marking its position in the limited run of 57 – a nod to the 57 years since the Camaro’s debut. This special touch is complemented by exclusive ‘Final Edition’ graphics adorning the car’s exterior.
Peace of Mind with Every Purchase
For those lucky enough to get their hands on one, Hennessey’s offers a comprehensive 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty. Production is already in full swing, so if you’re keen, it’s time to get in touch with Hennessey or an authorised Ford retailer.
In conclusion, the EXORCIST Camaro ZL1 ‘Final Edition’ is more than just a car; it’s a testament to Hennessey’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of automotive performance. As we bid farewell to this iconic model, one thing’s for sure: it’s going out with a bang.
