The new king of drag-track comes from Dodge, it’s called Dodge Challenger Demon, offers an amazing 840 horsepower and achieves 60 miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds!
Fans of muscle car and drag racing have a new hero. The new hero as usually comes from America, and it’s called Dodge Challenger Demon. It carries the same 6.2-liter V8 compressor which is already installed in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, but now the compressor is higher, the engine has improved performance and with this engine, you’ll get more power, even 840 horsepower. This allows the Challenger Demon to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds and a quarter mile will pass in less than 10 seconds, or exactly 9.65 seconds at 225 mph.
Additionally, Challenger Demon stick and an extraordinary record – this is the first vehicle in serial production in the world whose front end is separated from the ground during heavy acceleration. The owners will receive two different keys – one allows access to “only” 500 horsepower, while the second provides access to 808 horsepower on 91 octane fuel, or, all 840 horsepower of 100+ octane fuel.
The transfer is to the rear wheels through strengthened TorqueElite 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission. The new gearbox allows the Demon to transfer the power to the axles in front of a standing start, which in turn improves the launch of the drag track. The system keeps the engine of the ideal 2350 rpm for a perfect launch, and thanks to the drag-Nitto tires, ( which are legal to drive on normal roads ) the power at launch is increased by 40% compared to the Hellcat.
Dodge Demon is more than 90 kg lighter than the Dodge Hellcat, and the savings are due to the removed front passenger seat and the rear seats, and many parts are aluminum. Because more or less entire interior is gone or removed, the customers who want to have the passenger seat and the rear bench can be ordered additionally for only $1 each.
The price of the Dodge Challenger Demon is not yet known, but the production will begin this summer. It will be produced 3,000 copies in the United States and 300 copies in Canada.
