Mustang GT500 vs. Dodge Demon 170 – Street Hits

April 16th, 2024

The high-powered Dodge Demon 170 has chosen another victim and is circling its prey. We join the action already in progress as these combatants lock horns in a struggle for cash and bragging rights. Here we go!

As the top of the heap for the Ford Mustang lineup, the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is packing plenty of punch. At a curb weight of 4,171-pounds, the GT500 comes equipped with a supercharged 5.2-liter engine aptly named The Predator. The all-aluminum (block and heads) V8 is capable of producing 760hp and 625 lb.-ft. of torque. With the 7-speed automatic transmission, the stock GT500 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 11.3-seconds @ 132 mph. Top speed is 180 mph. The Mustang featured in this video has been modified with an aftermarket upper intake, a supercharger pulley upgrade and a cat delete exhaust setup. It has also been tuned to burn E85.

What can I say about the 2023 Dodge Demon 170? It’s a heavy pig at 4,275-pounds? How about the fact that it has a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine with a 3.0-liter supercharger? Or that it can make 1,025hp and 945 lb.-ft. of torque on race gas? Better yet, I’ll tell you that the Demon 170 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 1.66-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 8.91-seconds @ 151 mph – both those specs are the best ever for a production car.

Now, run tell that.
