2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon becomes the most powerful muscle car ever. The car has a power of 840 horsepower and a torque of 770 pounds feet.

The much anticipated 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has finally arrived. As we were expecting it has gotten an even high horsepower than the previous Hellcat used in Dodge.

The new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is regarded as one of the most powerful muscle car made by any company. It will have the ability to produce 840bhp with a torque of 770 pounds feet. All of this power will be transmitted from a super powerful engine which will be a 6.2 liter HEMI Demon V-8 engine.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is regarded as the most powerful production car that has a V8 engine installed in it. It is the first car which has front wheel lift which is actually listed in Guinness World Records as well.

It is also regarded as world’s first fastest quarter mile car. It has the ability to achieve 140 miles per hour in 9.65 seconds which is a record by any car. This figure is certified by National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) as well.

It will have the ability to achieve 0-60mph in mere 2.3 seconds which is super-fast. Along with that it had the ability to achieve 0-30 mph in only 1 second.

It is regarded as the first ever car which is a production level car with the ability of running on 100+ octane unleaded fuel. Other than that it can work with 91 octane on demand too. It will come with TransBrake in order to get a quick launch.

“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.

“To do so, we had to set records that have never been set before, do more than has ever been done before, go beyond even the legendary Hellcat. The result: an 840-horsepower, 9-second muscle car unlike anything that has ever come before it.”

The performance records flow from an impressive list of street-legal production car industry firsts. That list includes:

Factory-installed wider, Nitto street-legal drag radials for improved grip, 40 percent more launch force compared with SRT Hellcat tires

Available Direct Connection engine controller calibrated for 100+ unleaded high-octane fuel

SRT Power Chiller™ redirects air conditioning refrigerant to chill the charger air cooler

After-Run Chiller runs the cooling fan and the low-temperature circuit coolant pump after engine shutdown

TransBrake locks the output shaft of the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission to hold the car before launch, allowing the driver to increase engine rpm for higher torque and quicker response

Torque Reserve boosts engine air flow and supercharger rpm before launch, delivering wickedly fast acceleration

Drag Mode suspension tuning maximizes weight transfer to the rear wheels for better traction

Drag Mode Launch Assist uses wheel speed sensors to watch for driveline-damaging wheel hop at launch and in milliseconds modifies the engine torque to regain full grip and then continues accelerating the car down the track

Available narrow “front runner” wheels for use at drag strips cuts front-end weight

Wide-body exterior styling, with concealed wheel well attachments house Challenger SRT Demon’s massively wide 315/40R18 tires

Front passenger seat and rear seat deleted to reduce weight (can be optioned back for $1 each)

It will be a limited edition model and will only be made for a single year. The company is off to produce 3000 units for United States and 300 unites for Canada.
