Dodge Demon too tame? - Hennessy has 'The Exorcist'

Dodge confounded all expectations at the New York International Auto Show with an 840hp street-legal drag car called the Demon. Capable of hitting 60mph in 2.3 seconds and covering the standing quarter mile in 9.65 seconds, its performance levels border on witchcraft.

Hennessy's The Exorcist has a totally overhauled engine complete with ported cylinder heads, new valves, a new camshaft, a high-flow supercharger, plus new exhaust system. That juices the car's output to 1000bhp from the factory standard 640bhp.
The Hennessey Exorcist will be strictly limited to 100 individually numbered examples.
The car is available with a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic. The base cost for The Exorcist upgrade is $55,000.

The optional drag pack includes a pair of 20 inch wheels with 315/30-20 Nitto drag radial tires, drive shaft upgrade, floor jack and tool kit at a cost of $8,995.
