Hennessey Exorcist Runs 9.57 In 1/4 Mile

  • by Hennesey Performance

Hello race enthusiasts and horsepower junkies!

As many of you will remember, nearly a year ago, our team released our 1,000 horsepower EXORCIST to go head-to-head with the Dodge Demon. We knew that the development of this 6th Gen ZL1 would lead to a track car with all-around performance numbers that rival the best and baddest American muscle on the road.

Over the last few weeks, we have been busy with the EXORCIST to get all of you the numbers so many of you have been waiting for… top speed, ¼ mile, and 0-60mph. A couple weeks ago, we caught a break in the weather and were able to take the EXORCIST out to Lonestar Motorsports Park. In its first outing, the EXORCIST blasted off a remarkable 9.57sec @ 147mph in the ¼ mile. Check out the entire experience in the video below:

In addition to the impressive ¼ mile, last month we had the privilege of taking The EXORCIST out to Continental Tire Uvalde Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas. The EXORCIST proceeded to climb to an astounding 217mph in a top speed run. If you haven’t seen the video around this event yet, take a few minutes to watch the rocket blast around the track.
