Company started with 3000GT, Now Making 1,000 hp + Monsters
Just 30 special Exorcist Camaros to be built
John Hennessey is celebrating 30 years of making fast cars even faster with a special-edition Chevrolet Camaro. The Hennessey Exorcist Camaro ZL1 30th Anniversary is a 1,000 hp party favour that will be made in a limited run of just 30 that will also finish out the 100 car run for the Hennessey Exorcist.
Originally aimed firmly at Dodge’s Demon, this Camaro ZL1 is fitted with a larger supercharger, new air intake system, and goes even further to a new camshaft, ported cylinder heads, and long tube headers. The result is 1,000 hp and 883 lb-ft of torque.
Hitting the mark, the car could reach 100 km/h in 2.1 seconds, hit the quarter-mile in 9.57 at 147 mph, and run to 217 mph flat out. Vanquishing the Dodge Demon to second place at the strip.
Hennessey made his name working on the Mitsubishi 3000GT in 1991 before turning his attention to the then-new Dodge Viper. That makes it a bit of a surprise that his anniversary gift isn’t either of those models. Then again, they aren’t exactly as exciting today as they were in 1991.
The Anniversary Edition Camaro will get special graphics with a logo on the front flanks just behind the front wheel. Each of the cars will also be individually numbered to let owners know their spot on the build list.
“The Exorcist is the epitome of the American Muscle car and has the off-the-line performance to embarrass almost any car on the planet. We’ve been making fast cars faster since 1991, so our 30th Anniversary Exorcist pools all we know into one ferocious supercar slayer,” said John Hennessey.
The cars will start from US $135,000 including the Camaro ZL1 used for the conversion. The cars also come with a two-year warranty on the engine work and can be had with a stick or with the automatic transmission.
