Vengeance Racing Produces World's First 1,000+ RWHP Camaro
Vengeance Racing in Cumming, Georgia is known for building some of the fastest cars in the country. When the new sixth-gen Camaro ZL1 was released, they were determined to play with what GM engineers thought was “enough” for the beloved muscle car.
Vengeance has taken a new ZL1 and transformed it into a 1,047 rear-wheel horsepower nightmare on wheels (or should we say, dream?). They truly turned a a monstrous car into an epic beast that has a sound so menacing, it will make you drool. What this company did is beyond incredible, especially because the engine was left alone - aside from some ported heads and a custom camshaft. This car makes around 1,200 crank horsepower using the factory block, crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons!
The video below demonstrates Vengeance Racing's remarkable achievement, and lets us hear the car go bonkers on the dyno at wide-open throttle. Turn up your volume and prepare to be blown away - if you can take it!
Vengeance Racing Camaro ZL1 VR110
To be exact, the Vengeance 2017 Camaro ZL1 delivers 1,047 hp and 784 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels after dyno testing. As one can suspect, there is quite a list of modifications that were necessary to achieve the four-digit horsepower rating.
Most notably, this Camaro features a Procharger supercharger system, billet intake manifold with ported LT4 heads, a stage two camshaft, methanol injection and a custom ECU calibration. Vengeance cranked the boost up to 19 psi and the Camaro ZL1 runs on race fuel to achieve the power figures. See below for the full mod list:
• Procharger F-1A-94 Supercharger System; • Air-to-water intercooler ; • Late Model Engines billet intake manifold; • Vengeance Racing CNC Ported LT4 cylinder heads ; • Vengeance Racing Stage II Camshaft Kit; • AlkyControl dual nozzle methanol injection; • Kooks stainless steel longtube headers, x-pipe, axle-back exhaust system; • Custom ECU calibration ; • C16 race fuel .
Pricing has not yet been released, but with the ZL1 starting at around $62,000, we can be certain that these kits will definitely sell. The setup/build will cost you around $20,000, which puts you close to Demon territory = but with a lot more power and a car that can truly handle almost anything!
Nine-Second Track Star
Vengeance Racing just tested their "VR1100" sixth-gen ZL1 at the drag strip and managed several 9.58-second passes (quarter mile) at 152mph on factory 20" wheels with Mickey Thompson Drag Radials. These results make this Camaro the fastest and quickest sixth-gen ZL1 ever, according to Vengeance themselves. To save you a Google search, yes, that is faster than the Challenger Demon that does an official quarter mile at 9.65 seconds and 140mph. They said that "there was another two to three tenths left in this combo, but we ran out of time and were taking "baby steps" with this new A10 transmission." That can also mean that more exciting figures and demos are to come. We cannot wait to see it!
