Default The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is an absolute beast

0-60 in 2.3 seconds, quarter mile in 9.65, 840 horsies, and quickest street legal car in the world.

I want!

This part was wicked:

Quote:
The wide-body Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a barely street-legal drag racer with a V8 that can produce up to 840 HP and 770 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful American car ever. It’s also the quickest car in the world, with an NHRA certified 0-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.

Dodge didn’t just turn up the boost on the Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 707 hp 6.2-liter supercharged engine to unleash its inner beast, it updated more than half of its parts and added a laundry list of production-first and high tech features to the Demon.

There’s a larger displacement 2.7-liter supercharger that runs at 14.5 psi boost; strengthened rods, pistons and valvetrain; twin dual-stage fuel pumps; and the largest hood scoop ever used on a muscle car: a 45.2 square inch intake Dodge calls the Air-Grabber that’s apparently still not huge enough, because there’s a second intake in the middle of the inside driver’s side headlight and a third near the wheel liner. At full throttle, the Demon can suck all of the air out of a single-car garage in less than two minutes.

Instead of a simple cold air intake, the Demon cools things down by routing refrigerant from its air conditioner system through a chilling unit that helps drop the temperature of the ambient air by up to 45 degrees before the supercharger stuffs it into the cylinder. There, it can be mixed with as low as 91-octane fuel and turn it into 808 hp and 717 pound feet, but an optional engine controller can be installed that lets it run on 100-octane race fuel to unlock full 840/770, and it doesn’t even void the five-year/60,000-mile warranty. If there’s a blend in the tank, it’ll figure out the best way to burn it.

Compared to the Chevy Camaro, the car is butt ugly. However, since all the Camaro driver will ever see is the backside of the Challenger, I guess that works out fine.

I have a friend high up at Chrysler. She told me two years ago this one was coming. nice to see Chrysler/Fiat is building fast cars worth buying again.

BTH,I own two SRT-6's with the Crossfire badge. Supercharged 330 HP with 300 Ft Lbs of Torque on a 3,000 Lb chassis, stock. Mine ain't stock. One does the quarter in 12 seconds. No where near this level of performance. But being inside a machine that does that is an amazing experience.

9.65 seconds is insane.

Is this a single-seater? If so...why?!?!?!

The whole point of buying a ride like this is to pile in the vagina.

I dunno. Previous models weren't. They even had a backseat for Groceries.

That said, most track racers do take the passenger seat out of the car to hit those fast 1/4 times. I know I do. When you are squeezing from 12.3 seconds down to 12.0,,,; 24Lbs makes a difference.

It just looks like it doesn't have a passenger seat.
