Pushing The Limits of Performance With New 2018 Challenger SRT Demon
When the Dodge Hellcat Challenger and Charger fearsome 707 horsepower street racers hit the asphalt in 2015 the price of gas at the pump was plummeting having lost nearly a dollar per gallon in just a year down to a national average of $2.40.
Now Dodge is doubling down with the 840 horsepower supercharged 6.2 liter HEMI Challenger SRT Demon – the most powerful production V8 ever produced. With 0 – 60 times of 2.3 seconds, and an NHRA certified quarter mile time under 10 seconds, the Demon devoured the famed ATCO Raceway drag strip on a recent day of track testing.
With a dazzling array of drag racing tech, like the TransBrake system that gives the car a split-second surge off the line, just 3,300 of these special edition Challengers are being produced for North America and every buyer receives a full day of instruction at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Racing.
Priced at $85,000 and facing rising fuel prices, a senior member of the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles product team said the bone rattling Demon is an expression of what the Dodge brand stands for!
