Hennessey Exorcist Chevorlet Camaro ZL1 Reaches 217 MPH

John Hennessey and his team released an astonishing video of the Exorcist Camaro ZL1. The performance company showed the suped-up muscle car having a Top Speed of 217 MPH.

Hennessey Performance Engineering showed off it’s 1,000-horsepower Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 last April. Since then the car’s has become the assailing answer to Dodge’s Challenger Demon, even if it’s not a Stock OEM package. We know 959 of its 1,000 horsepower actually makes its way to the rear wheels, but we still never learned just how fast it will go in a straight line, until now. This is how we know.

John Hennessey and his team released an astonishing video of the Exorcist Camaro ZL1. The performance company showed the suped-up muscle car having a Top Speed of 217 MPH. For some comparison, the Challenger Demon has a Top Speed of 203 mph. The Demon’s speed is also electronically limited.

The Hennessey Performance Engineering’s Exorcist ZL Camaro can also clock 0-60 mph times in under three seconds and clock quarter-mile times under 10 seconds on a regular basis, the company previously said.

Ford Performance School driver Brian Smith handled the top speed run for HPE at the Continental Uvalde Proving Grounds, ironically enough. The track features a 1.0-mile straightaway where the car could truly dig in and Smith could run flat out. Otherwise, the track is oval-shaped with a slight corner at nearly all times, which was very difficult to mash the accelerator to the floor.

However, Smith still was able to squeeze every last ounce of speed the Exorcist he could muster. In the process, he showed the car is faster than a handful of supercars. Interesting fact, this car is equivalent to a McLaren P1 and nearly matches up to a Ferrari LaFerrari. The Italian Hypercar has a Top Speed 221 mph. I really want one of these!
