New Dodge Challenger SRT Demon breaks records

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Breaks Track Records with 840HP Power Plant

Written By, Chloe L.

Dodge finally unveiled the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and it definitely lives up to all of the hype. The Challenger SRT Demon is the most powerful factory-produced muscle car ever made and it goes from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and it covers a quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds.

Essentially, Dodge and SRT teamed up to make another record breaker like they once did with the Dodge Viper and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Although it sounds like the Challenger SRT Demon is equipped with the same engine as the Challenger SRT Hellcat (supercharged 6.2 HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine), in reality, the engine in the SRT Demon is much more advanced.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has a supercharged 6.2L HEMI Demon V8 engine that produces 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. In comparison to the Challenger SRT Hellcat engine, the engine in the Challenger SRT Demon has a supercharger that is .3 liters bigger and it sucks in a lot more air and fuel.

Here are Challenger SRT Demon’s notable stats and specs

  • The wide Air-Grabber hood scoop is the largest functional hood scoop (45.2 square inches) of any production car
  • First  factory-production muscle car with wide-body fender flares.
  • Rides on four standard Nitto NT05R street-legal, drag-race tires, which is a first for a factory-production car.
  • First street-legal factory-production car designed to run on 100+ unleaded high-octane fuel.
  • largest air induction volume of any production car (1,180 cubic feet per minute)
