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.
