Mustang GT Shamelessly Accosted by Fake Exorcist Camaro
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.
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.
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.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy.
