Chevrolet Gets A Dodge Demon Slayer. And It Deserves To Be Called The Exorcist

What happens when some car company comes out with a badass car with a badass name like the Demon? Someone else will try to one up you. In this case, Hennessey, the guys behind the six-wheeled Raptor, the Hellcat beating Mustang, and the 1000 horsepower Corvette, concocted a Dodge Demon Challenger competitor. The Demon isn’t even out yet, and already it has a big target on its back.

The new special edition Hennessey will be based off the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. If you’re not familiar with that car yet, here’s a quick reminder. It starts off with the LT4 engine but the supercharger has been ripped apart and replaced with a larger and higher flowing version. The engine has also been ported, coupled with a “camshaft upgrade, long-tube stainless steel headers, high-flow air induction system and custom engine management calibration.”

All of those upgrades are good to push The Exorcist (You heard that right) to 1000 bhp @ 6,400 rpm and 966 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm. This should spell big trouble for the upcoming Dodge Demon as that has been rumored to possess about 757 horsepower.

  1. Oh, you mean like mortgage, insurance, food, clothes, and everything else? For 100K you would need to save over $8300/month over the next year. Even if you can afford the payment on 50k that is still saving $4800/month for the DP. What exactly do you spend your money on if you can save that kind of dough?

  2. Will it be available in California?
