The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is one of the most anticipated modern muscle cars, but it has yet to be released. Thankfully, Hennessey has released their own Demon rival, called “The Exorcist,” based on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The tuned supercharged LT4 V8 engine now produces 1,000 hp at 6,400 rpm and 966 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. This was made possible with a larger supercharger set at 14 psi of boost, ported factory cylinder heads, long-tube stainless steel headers, custom engine management and a high-flow air induction system. On drag radial tires, it goes from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds and completes a quarter mile in less than 10 seconds. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

“Prices for The Exorcist upgrade start at $55,000 and include a 2 year, 24,000 mile warranty. If the supplied ZL1 has an automatic transmission, it will have to be upgraded at the cost of $9,950. Additionally, the optional drag pack that includes 20 inch wheels and Nitto drag radial tires, an upgraded drive shaft, floor jack and tool kit costs an extra $8,995. Alternatively, The Exorcist can be optioned with the road race pack that includes lightweight 20-inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for $6,995,” reports Car Scoops.
