Dodge is shaking up the New York International Auto Show with its wickedly fast 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
Powered by a 840-horsepower, supercharged engine, the limited-production Challenger SRT Demon is the world’s most powerful factory-production V-8 – bar none!
- 0-30 mph: 1.0 second
- 0-60 mph: 2.3 seconds
- Quarter-mile: 9.65 seconds at 140 mph (fastest in the world)
The Challenger SRT Demon also is the world’s first production car to lift the front wheels at launch and set the world record for longest wheelie from a standing start by a production car at 2.92 feet, certified by Guinness World Records. And hold onto your seat. The Challenger SRT Demon also registers the highest g-force (1.8 g) ever recorded at launch in a production car.
“With Demon, our goal was to build a car that would tattoo the Dodge logo into the subconscious of the general market, beyond even our loyal enthusiasts, said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America.
Looks like they succeeded. Not only was there a huge line to see the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon at the New York International Auto Show, the Demon has already been tapped by Hollywood. The Demon makes a very significant appearance in The Fate of the Furious, the latest in the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. I’ve seen an advance screening of the film which officially opens on April 14, and, trust me, the Demon makes a huge impression.
