2018 Dodge Challenger Demon SRT

With so many teasers spanning the course of months, we were beginning to think that it was never going to happen. Then, today, it finally did: the elusive 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon SRT was revealed. And while we weren’t happy about it at the time (and we could definitely do without the day-to-day teasers), it was definitely worth the wait.

Since you can see with your own eyes that this vehicle is a work of art, let’s talk about what you can’t see: performance figures. The Demon packs a whopping 840 horsepower under the hood, thanks to its supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine paired with a functional Air-Grabber hood scoop and something called a “Torque Reserve Launch System.” What that means is that this car can actually beat the Bugatti Veyron’s 1/4-mile time. In fact, it’s the fastest quarter-mile production car ever made with an elapsed time of 9.65 @ 140 mph – as certified by NHRA. And not just that – it’s got the highest horsepower, best 0-60 time, and highest g-force produced of any mass-produced vehicle ever built (1.8 Gs to be exact). It can even pop a wheelie off the line. But, the most absurd metric of all is that Dodge is looking to sell it for less than $100,000.
