2018 Dodge Demon - Why its BANNED!!
Dodge rocked the high-performance car world in 2014 with the 707-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Challenger SRT Hellcat, building supercar performance at affordable prices. They were the most powerful muscle cars ever - until now. Dodge is shaking the foundation of the entire performance car industry, launching 2017 New York International Auto Show with its wickedly fast new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - highly capable on the street, absolutely dominating at the drag strip. Powered by a 840-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Demon V-8, the limited-production Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the world's most powerful factory-production V-8 - bar none. NHRA-certified 9.65 seconds @ 140 mph makes the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon the fastest ¼-mile car in the world. Performance numbers: 0-30 mph: 1.0 second 0-60 mph: 2.3 seconds Quarter-mile: 9.65 seconds at 140 mph The Challenger SRT Demon also is the world's first production car to lift the front wheels at launch and set the world record for longest wheelie from a standing start by a production car at 2.92 feet, certified by Guinness World Records. And hold onto your seat. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon also registers the highest g-force (1.8 g) ever recorded at launch in a production car. The Challenger SRT Demon's record-setting performance is the result of collaboration among the Dodge//SRT, Design, Engineering, Powertrain and Manufacturing teams inside FCA US LLC, many of whom are experienced and active drag racers. While the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon remains a potent street car, every component was scrutinized and optimized for weight, capability and durability on the strip. 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)

Dodge's Tim Kuniskis took the Demon out on the M1 track to give us a true demonstration of how it's supposed to sound under full throttle. Turn your speakers up, folks. This is what the Demon scream sounds like.
