Stories of an upcoming 6th gen Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 remain nothing but rumors. So, with the production of the Camaro set to end in December, Hennessey saw it fitting to build a final high-performance variant of the iconic pony car that General Motors refuses to build itself.
Introducing the Hennessey EXORCIST Camaro ZL1 ‘Final Edition.’
In stock form, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has a 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 rated at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. Hennessey’s expert technicians, who have been ‘making fast cars faster’ for more than 32 years, fit the Camaro’s pushrod V8 with a larger high-flow supercharger, high-flow air induction system and upgrade the auxiliary fuel system, fuel injectors, and fuel pump. Turning to the V8 powerplant, the cylinder heads are ported, custom HPE camshafts are fitted, and the intake valves, exhaust valves, valve springs, retainers, lifters, and pushrods are upgraded. An oversized heat exchanger is fitted for enhanced cooling, while long-tube stainless steel headers and high-flow catalytic converters improve breathing.
The enhancements and tuning, along with the comprehensive overhaul of the engine, results in the LT4 engine achieving an output of 1,000 horsepower and 966 lb-ft of torque – a 54 percent increase in power and a 49 percent boost in torque. Performance is jaw-dropping, as the EXORCIST ‘Final Edition’ boasts a 2.1 second 0-60 mph time, 9.57 second ¼ mile, and a top speed of 217 mph.
Production of this 200+ mph pony car is limited to 57 exclusive examples, commemorating 57 years since the iconic Chevrolet Camaro first entered production. Nearly six years after Hennessey’s original EXORCIST roared onto the scene, the limited EXORCIST Camaro ZL1 ‘Final Edition’ is ready to battle the Dodge Demon 170.
