Watch Hennessey’s ‘The Exorcist’ Camaro Rocket To 217 MPH

Eager to show the world that its Chevrolet Camaro ‘The Exorcist’ is that much better than the Dodge Demon, Hennessey has taken its 1000 hp muscle car to 217 mph (349 km/h).

To test out the Camaro’s top speed abilities, Hennessey took the car out to the Uvalde Proving Grounds. Despite reaching a top speed equal to that of a Lamborghini Aventador, The Exorcist didn’t seem to have any difficulties reaching the mark. As a matter of fact, it could have perhaps clocked over 220 mph if the driver didn’t have to slow down for a curve in the road.

In the right conditions, a Dodge Demon can top out at a touch over 200 mph (320 km/h). In terms of top speed then, The Exorcist has the Demon handsomely beaten.

To create The Exorcist, Hennessey starts out with a Camaro ZL1 and for $55,000, outfits the car with a plethora of modifications aimed at not only making it fast in a straight line but also a weapon around corners.

For those that want the ultimate drag-focused Camaro, Hennessey will fit the car with 20-inch wheels, drag radial tires, an upgraded driveshaft, floor jack, and a tool kit for an extra $8,995.

We’re yet to see The Exorcist and Dodge Demon face off down the quarter mile but are hopeful Hennessey is planning such a race.



    We all know they’ll just make a faster kit with the Demon a few months later.
