Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Officially Beats Dodge Challenger Demon!

By  | 

Yes, you read the title right. The latest generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has managed to beat the all-new Dodge Challenger Demon in its own game – drag racing.

The Challenger Demon is the benchmark in this department as it brags the fastest quarter-mile speed in stock form. The Demon provoked major tuning outlets to match its straight line speed while keeping in mind the cost of the top-of-the-line Challenger.

The first tuner to accept this challenge is Hennessey Performance. The firm revealed that they will use the latest 650hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE and tune it to offer 1000hp. The end product will be called the Exorcist and they are confident it can outpace the Challenger Demon.

The Exorcist has been in the works for some time now but we apparently don’t have to wait any longer to know that the Camaro ZL1 is truly capable of outpacing the Challenger Demon. Vengeance Racing has developed the VR1100 and its quarter-mile test time saw it edging past the Challenger Demon.

Like the Exorcist, the VR1100 is packed with 1,000hp and is based on the Camaro ZL1 1LE. You can check out its quarter-mile performance in the clip below.
