Watch Hennessey's Exorcist Camaro Unleash Its 217-MPH Top Speed
With 959 horsepower at the wheels, this beast has no problem hitting high speeds. Research 2018 chevrolet camaro See Full Specs See Pricing John Hennessey's team has taken its Camaro Exorcist to Continental Tires' proving grounds in Texas and managed to push the 1,000-horsepower coupe to 217 miles per hour. The car still appears to be pulling at the end of the relatively short straight section, but the driver lifts off the throttle to negotiate an oncoming corner safely.
SVE has been offering the 800hp Yenko/SC Stage I Camaro since 2015. At the time, it was sold as a 700 hp package. Now, the team is offering a bump in power. A preview took place at last year's SEMA show, but now it's officially here. Starting with a 2018 Camaro SS 1LE, the Stage II kit makes 1,000hp. The engine is built off of the foundation of the stock, LT-1, but only the block remains. Displacement is bumped from a 6.2L to a 6.8L, the block is blueprinted, and the rotating assembly is built with a forged with a 4340 steel crank shaft, H-beam rods, and forged pistons. Then they add CNC-ported LT4 cylinder heads and a supercharger. Custom stainless-steel long tube headers and dual-mode exhaust, produces the mean sound.

The Stage II kit comes with a 3 year/36,000-mile limited warranty. That's insane for a 1,000hp car. The Stage II package starts at $66,995 (not including the roughly $30,000 for the 1LE Camaro itself), and only a total of 25 of each stage will be produced. There's specialty 1,000hp badging and the real deal Yenko/SC graphics throughout the car. Branded big-brakes are installed and select suspension components are used.
SVE has produced over 150,000 cars, mainly F-bodies, since 1990. "We have a good idea of what we're doing and what our customers are doing with the cars," said SVE's Dave Hamburger about the choice of components in the Yenko/SC Stage II Camaro. The team has tested the cars and components, including torture testing the factory blocks and aftermarket options.
This year they plan on producing a limited run of 25 Stage I Camaros, 25 of the 825hp Corvettes, 25 of the 1,000hp Camaros, and 25 of the 800hp Silverados.
Watch the Hennessey Exorcist Camaro ZL1 Unleash its 1,000 HP
<p>New video shows off the Exorcist's capabilities</p>John Heinricy, multiple SCCA national champion and retired GM engineer, took the Exorcist to the track to show a new owner what he is in for. Unsurprisingly, he's all smiles as the Exorcist barrels down the runway at 130 mph. Youmay want to turn the volume down on your computer just slightly before watching the video, because this engine produces a hell of a sound. Or better yet, turn it up.

Another cool factor similar to the original Yenko program, is that all models must be ordered through a Chevrolet Dealer. Starting with a Camaro 1LE, your selected purchase is either shipped to SVE straight from the factory, or if the dealer has one you like, SVE will go pick it up anywhere in the country.

These were all Camaros (and a few Firebirds), and about 800 of them converged at the Promenade Temecula on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.Camaro enthusiasts came from all over. Some drove up to seven hours just to partake in this amazing five-hour-long gathering.
