Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE vs Dodge Challenger Demon: An Outside Intervention

By  | 

The Dodge Challenger Demon is officially the world’s fastest accelerating car, so how can a vehicle like Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE competes with it? The latter is a superb performance vehicle but its figures are simply no match for the Challenger Demon.

The stock Camaro ZL1 1LE has got 650hp to offer and this is about 190hp short of the Challenger Demon. Furthermore, the former is heavier than the latter. The Camaro can complete a 0-60mph sprint in 3.4 seconds and this is a full 1.1 seconds slower than the Challenger Demon.

For Hennessey Performance, they are aware of the insanity that is with the Challenger Demon and they also know that the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE is no match for the car. However, Hennessey sees a big potential with the Camaro ZL1 1LE and they have decided to tap on that.

The tuning firm announced earlier today that the Camaro ZL1 1LE has been granted a new tuning package that will bring the overall output of the car to 1000hp. Hennessey calls it the Exorcist tuning made specifically for the Camaro and its aim is simply to beat the Challenger Demon on the straight line.

But of course, Hennessey has yet to share on the full performance figures of the Camaro Exorcist and this will have to wait until the tuning package gets officially released.
