Hennessey Exorcist Camaro ZL1 Final Edition

The sixth-generation Camaro will be discontinued in 2024, according to a statement made by Chevrolet earlier this year. Unfortunately, this also implies that manufacturers of tuning equipment, like Hennessey, will soon run out of donor vehicles.

Hennessey thus revealed today that its 1,000 horsepower (746 kW/1,014 PS) Camaro rival, the Exorcist, is ceasing production. In remembrance of the Camaro's 57 years of existence, the tuner has produced a "Final Edition" model that is only available in 57 copies as a final farewell to the vehicle.

Each example will have a unique outside Final Edition graphic indicating the position of the particular car in the run. It will also feature a plaque with the serial number "Final Edition X of 57" in the engine bay.

After all, those are the Exorcist's most amazing improvements. As usual, Hennessey has substantially tweaked Chevrolet's 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 to power the Final Edition car.

A bigger supercharger, a high-flow air induction system, and an improved auxiliary fuel system are among the improvements. Additionally, it receives updated valves, valve springs, retainers, lifters, and pushrods along with ported cylinder heads and HPE camshafts.

Over the factory engine, the result is an increase in power and torque of 54% and 49%, respectively. Or, to put it another way, the engine produces 966 lb-ft (1,309 Nm) of torque along with 1,000 horsepower (746 kW/1,014 PS) of power.

According to CEO John Hennessey, "our comprehensive upgrade to the Camaro ZL1 is one of my all-time favorites." "The chassis, suspension, and engine all function in perfect harmony, so all the driver feels is pure, unrestrained horsepower. We are thrilled to share this exceptional limited edition with admirers of this famous automobile before it disappears forever since there is nothing else like our EXORCIST.
