Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been hogging the headlines this year, and for good reason. As were sure youre aware by now, the dragfocused Demon is the most extreme SRT model Dodge has ever built, packing a 6.2liter V8 with 840 hp and 770 lbft of torque which is the most powerful engine ever fitted to a production car. In retaliation, Texasbased tuner Hennessey created the aptly named monster called The Exorcist designed to outrun the Demon on the drag strip.

Based on the already insane 650hp Camaro ZL1, The Exorcist cranks out 1,000 horsepower thanks to its larger supercharger and reworked engine.
The Exorcist now has another advantage over the Demontheres a convertible option. Should you want to make your drop top Camaro ZLR even more extreme, Hennessey will happily give it the Exorcist treatment.

Among the upgrades included in the tuning package are a larger supercharger with 14 psi of boost pressure, upgraded camshafts, ported factory cylinder heads, longtube stainless steel headers, custom engine management and a highflow air induction system. The hardtop Exorcist can sprint from 062 mph in under three seconds with drag radials and can do the quarter mile in less than 10 seconds. Hennessey has released a video of the convertible Exorcist hooked up to a dyno, allowing us to enjoy its screaming V8 in all its glory. Track testing is said to start soon, so it shouldnt be too long before we find out the opentop monsters performance figures.

The only downside? The ZL1 convertible starts at $69,000 and the original Exorcist package cost $50,000. That brings the total to nearly $120,000, so it certainly isnt cheap compared to the $85,000 Demon. But you cant get a convertible Demon, so this is really your only option if you want an opentop muscle car with such extreme performance.
