Hennessey Performance has picked up the gauntlet laid down by the Dodge Demon, outrunning the factory-fresh Fiat Chrysler dragster in a Camaro called 'The Exorcist'.

Based on a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, The Exorcist has been boosted to 756kW and 1197Nm. The results are predictably impressive.

The hotted-up Chevy ran a 2.1-second 0-60mph (0-97km/h) sprint, pulled to 100mph (161km/h) in 4.7 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 9.57 seconds at 236km/h.

By way of comparison, the Demon hits 60mph in 2.3 seconds, runs to 100mph in 5.1 seconds and does the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at 255km/h.
