The American tuner Hennessey performance is of course also represented at the 2019 SEMA auto show. And you have the “successor” of the crazy one at the exhibition stand Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro with 1.000PS presents. Curtain up for the 1.200 PS & 1355 NM strong Hennessey Resurrection Camaro ZL1 (1LE)! The tuner has probably revised the 6,2-liter V8 compressor once again and tickled more 200 horsepower from the engine? How does that work? Apparently not that easy! How else can you explain that Hennessey bothered to use that LT4 engine kick out and replace it with the LT5 V8 from the Corvette ZR1. Already in production, this monster delivers 765 horsepower and fierce 969 Newton meters of torque and creates the new base for enhancing Hennessey performance. The tuner reworked virtually the entire engine and adds almost all components that were also presented in the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 HPE1200 are installed.

The most important details here are an increase in displacement to 7 liters, a completely new compressor system, a special sports exhaust system, new pistons and connecting rods and, of course, an air intake system for enough fresh air. In addition, the fuel system is significantly modified and a huge intercooler and a completely rebuilt cooling system, in combination with in-house chip tuning, ensure that the V8 does not burn out even under full load and can use all new components perfectly.
And if you want, you can even order the monster with a six-speed manual transmission with a Centerforce clutch or optionally with the familiar 10-speed automatic. Both variants are of course adapted to the extreme performance and significantly reinforced. The Hennessey Performance Upgrade on the ZL1 is also visually apparent. But typically Hennessy - only very discreet - if one can speak of it at all considering a ZL1. The coupé received a specially made bonnet made of carbon and there is a black foil on the sides Resurrection lettering.
0 at 100 km / h in just 2,3 seconds
There were no other obvious changes! Incidentally, according to Hennessy, the power sprayer accelerates to 100 km / h in just 2,3 seconds, and the quarter mile would have been completed in just 9,3 seconds with a top speed of approximately 240 km / h. In view of the fact that the Resurrection continues to drive only with rear-wheel drive are the extremely impressive cornerstones. Resurrection Incidentally, it is translated as "resurrection", which, considering the circumstances, we find at least as frightening as the addition of "exorcist" at the time. If we receive information on further changes to the ZL1 in a timely manner, there is of course an update for this report. You will be informed about this if you simply use ours Feed subscribe to.
