Holy moly! That looks angry. Quite. Meet ‘The Exorcist’, John Hennessey’s take on the Camaro ZL1. And his answer to Dodge’s unhinged, 840bhp wheelie-popping Demon. Ah, I see what they did there: Exorcist vs Demon – very clever. But what exactly is it? Using Chevrolet’s juiced up ZL1 Camaro as a base (that’s the angrier, quicker version of the humble American muscle car), Hennessey has given it even more power to make it even quicker. John and his team have gone to work on the same supercharged, 6.2-litre ‘LT4’ engine from the Corvette Z06 (that normally produces 640bhp and 640lb ft of torque) and turned it all the way up to four figures. Yep, clog your right foot into the carpet and you’ll experience 1,000bhp at 6,400rpm and 966lb ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. Best hold on tight, as when equipped with the optional drag radial tires, this Exorcist will see off 0-60 mph in under three seconds and tramp the quarter-mile in less than ten seconds.
