I bet you did not know it, but Dodge Demon is world’s fastest quarter mile production car ever, making for a monster of a vehicle which boasts 840 HP. And the good news is that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles already started shipping the American Godzilla to dealers all across the United States.
A 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a limited production monster, Satan’s car if you like, boasting an uber-cool 6.2 liter Hemi V8 power-plant, which delivers no less than 840 horsepower. Yes, you got that right: 840, it’s not a typo. The automaker claims that their latest Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was built and designed to be world’s first street-legal drag car.
And this is as serious as it gets, as the production Dodge Demon got certified by the National Hot Rod Association as the fastest quarter mile production vehicle in the world. Nissan GTR who?
Some low testosterone so-called automotive journalists are criticizing the ultimate American muscle car for being too much for the average Joe, with some zealots even calling for banning the beast from the streets, as the Dodge Demon is allegedly too dangerous due to its sheer power, and it presents a clear and present danger and so forth and so on, you know how the liberals are. Nobody cares anyway.
The Dodge Demon blasted the quarter mile in under ten seconds (9,65) reaching a top speed of 140 miles per hour in the process and it accelerates from zero to sixty in 2.3 seconds. As per an official statement made by the person responsible for the monster, Fiat Chrysler North America’s head of passenger cars Tim Kuniskis respectively, the Dodge Demon is a niche-car built for enthusiasts:
“The people who bought a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon are performance enthusiasts to the core, and having a custom car with accessories that improve overall performance is critical,”
At least 3300 Demons will be summoned at Chrysler’s plant in Brampton, Ontario, and 300 of them will unfortunately go to Canada.
