Dodge has shocked the world by invoking dark forces. Based on the popular Challenger Hellcat, the Demon is a record-breaking supercar. Starting with the most obvious: it’s a very wide car. Open the door and you will find a 4-point harness for the driver’s seat. The other seats are optional, but who needs passengers? Each option, from the 19- speaker Harmon/Kardon system to the trunk carpet, adds $1 to the car’s price. The most valuable is the “Demon crate.” It contains skinny front wheels, an impact gun, floor jack and engine programmer. It unlocks the computer to recognize race fuel, another first for a production car.
To build the world’s fastest production car, Dodge started with a new block. A giant supercharger now displaces 2.7 liters and is chilled by an intercooler along with a shot of cool air from the A/C. This allows boost to reach 14.7 pounds at launch. Being the first production car equipped with a trans-brake, it allows the Demon to pull a wheelie at the starting line. A quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds at 140 mph is why it is banned from NHRA racing – because it lacks a roll cage. Certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, both front tires are in the air for 2.92 feet. 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque will have you at 60 mph in 2.3 seconds. Only 3,000 cars will be built for the US and 300 for Canada, which makes the Demon a hot commodity.
