New Kid on the Block
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat tore through the muscle car segment and quickly took the number one spot. That model topped the industry with a 707-hp supercharged V8 engine, but that wasn’t quite enough for the automaker. Dodge recently unveiled its two-year project in the making and it’s an impressive specimen that’s headed to the production line. Meet the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
Dodge is known for taking performance to a whole new level. The Challenger SRT Demon burns rubber with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers an astounding 840 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque on high-test gasoline.
That kind of performance and a streamlined, weight-saving design result in a quarter-mile time of just 9.65 seconds on a drag strip. The Challenger SRT Demon is so insanely powerful that any NHRA-sanctioned drag strip will require a roll cage. In fact, Tim Kuniskis, SRT head, received a letter telling him the Demon is banned from the strip without a roll cage.
Now down to the real question: what will this hell spawn cost you? Word has it the new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will cost just $84,995 MSRP*, a bargain considering this muscle car nails a 0-to-60 mph time of just 2.3 seconds.
We here at Rudig Jensen are pumped for the thrilling Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to begin production!
