We've brought you tons of tales involving Hennessey-massaged machines that pack the kind of output which can easily make one weak at the knees. However, the one we have here is special, since it involves a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.
The golden bowtie machine has been gifted with the Exorcist package, which was born to live up to its name when it comes to facing the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

Keep in mind that the Exorcist, which packs no less than 1,000 hp, has already proven its might on a non-1LE Camaro ZL1, managing to pull a 9.57s quarter-mile - keep in mind that the Mopar halo car needs 9.65s to complete the 1,320 feet sprint.

Well, the Texan specialist has now come up with a ZL1 1LE proposal, which changes things quite a bit. We'll remind you that the 1LE is a factory package that allows the Camaro to redefine muscle car standards in terms of cornering.

To be more precise, a stock Camaro ZL1 1LE managed to get round the Nurburgring in 7:16 - this performance is simply astonishing, as it makes the slab of America quicker than both the 991.1 Porsche 911 Turbo S and GT3 RS.

Returning to the thousand-pony stunt we have here, the Lone Star State developer strapped the machine to a dyno, with the resulting soundtrack easily giving one goosebumps.

For the record, we'll mention that the 1LE package comes in six-speed manual trim, so this involves the fact that owners get to mix the monstrous output (the torque sits at 883 lb-ft) with a clutch.

Of course, jumping from 650 to 1,000 ponies is the kind of leap that does one or two things to the character of a car and we'd be extremely curious to see how this thing performs on the Green Hell now that it's been to the gym.
