Mustang GT Shamelessly Accosted by Fake Exorcist Camaro

By -

Mustang driver out for a cruise thought that he came across a big-power Chevy, but it turns out to be a V6 with stickers.

While out cruising the local streets, a 2019 Ford Mustang GT owner came across what he thought was one of the quickest and most powerful Camaros on the road. Unfortunately, what looked like a Hennessey Exorcist Camaro turned out to be nothing more than a V6 car with a bunch of tacky stick-on exterior upgrades, so rather than 1,000 horsepower, it has closer to 300 horsepower. As a result, the noisy Camaro is no challenge for the Coyote-powered pony car from the Rush Shift YouTube channel.

Out for a Cruise

The video begins with the Mustang GT owner introducing the video, explaining that he was headed out for a bite to eat with his “bro” when they came upon several other performance cars that wanted to play. This started with a white S197 Mustang that put up a good fight at first, only to be gapped by the 2019 GT and later on, a black S550 rolls up to take a shot.

Mustang Vs Mustang

While both of the female-driven Mustangs were little more than some basic on-road tomfoolery, the real challenge shows up just before the six-minute mark. That challenge comes in the form of the Chevrolet Camaro Exorcist, or at least the Chevy owner thinks that he drives an Exorcist while he actually drives a V6 car with a bunch of tacky stick-on upgrades.

The Exorcist

If you are not familiar with it, the Exorcist is a package offered by Hennessey Performance for the sixth generation Camaro ZL1. The Exorcist Camaro packs 1,000 horsepower and 883 lb-ft of torque, yielding a quarter mile time in the 9-second range and a top speed of 217 miles per hour, but the package also includes a distinct, red stripe that runs along the upper body line and presents the package name on the rear quarter panels.

Unfortunately, while this Camaro has the Exorcist stripe, it isn’t a ZL1, nor is it a V8 car at all. It is a V6 car with loud exhaust, a bunch of stickers, brake caliper covers, Lamborghini-style taillights and a gigantic wing. As a result, it obviously isn’t capable of competing with the 2019 Mustang GT, but the Camaro driver tries, taking a sound beating from a roll.

Aside from that short roll race, the fake Exorcist driver spends the majority of this video making a whole lot of noise, climbing in and out of the throttle and revving the engine in an attempt to show off against a car that is louder, stronger and faster.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
