Ever wonder what it’s like to drive the Dodge Demon, the world’s fastest production car? The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is built with pure performance in mind. This model has a single seat, fender flares, fat tires, and an 840-horsepower engine. There’s not one detail that doesn’t contribute to the raw power and performance of the new Demon, making this car ideal for anyone who loves drag racing.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the Dodge Challenger Demon is one of a kind, offering a truly unique driving experience. While it carries over many aspects from the base Challenger model, the Demon has a few tricks up its sleeve. Thanks to the 840-horsepower engine (which also gets 770 lb-ft of torque), the Demon can do zero to 60 in just 2.3 seconds. Believe it or not, it has a quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds.
Cool New Features
The new Demon has a few features that help it excel on the drag strip. Or those who prefer the old-fashioned two-foot method to launching, the Demon will let you do what you want. However, there are also some advanced technologies that optimize times on the track, including Launch Assist, Drag Mode, and a new software called transbrake.
“Pundits criticize the Challenger as an aging platform, but Dodge has kept things interesting with an array of variants,” writes Andy Mikonis at the Tribune. “[T]he Demon proves there’s some real engineering talent in the ranks of SRT.”
