Hennessey-tuned Camaro exorcises the Dodge Demon – VIDEO

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.

Kia slams Stinger for SEMA

The 2018 Kia Stinger has only just landed, but the Korean manufacturer has already handed it over to West Coast Customs for a wide-body makeover. There’s only one image of the car at the moment, but the tweaked Stinger GT certainly shows some serious promise, with aggressively-flared arches and an angry-looking diffuser. West Coast Customs has lowered the front and rear suspension and swapped the standard wheels for 21-inch forged units, which lurk under widebody fender flares.

Toyota 86 gets 600kW Speedhunters treatment

Speedhunters and suspension specialists KW have teamed up to create the Toyota 86X to compete in drift competitions in Norway and across Europe.
