2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8

For 2012, the Dodge Challenger SRT8® 392 adds even more high-tech performance features to solidify its place as the brand's ultimate modern American rear-wheel-drive muscle coupe. This 470 horsepower machine promises a balanced performance approach with outstanding straight-line acceleration, world-class ride and handling, high-performance braking and the most up-to-date technologies that deliver more driver excitement and control. And it still gets up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 accelerates from 0-60 mph in the high 4-second range; runs the quarter mile in mid-12-second range with the automatic transmission (high 12-second range with the manual); goes from 0-100-0 mph in the low 15s, reaches a top speed of 182 mph with the manual transmission (175 mph with the automatic) and stops from 60-0 mph in just 117 feet. The 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) HEMI® V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470 (637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end power while still delivering up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway with the standard manual transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve idle stability and ride control at all speeds. Standard Fuel Saver Technology (four cylinder mode) in automatic transmission equipped models allows the engine to operate economically on four cylinders or use the power of all eight cylinders when needed. The EPA fuel economy miles per gallon (mpg) (City/Hwy) ratings for the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 are 14/22 for automatic transmission models and 14/23 for manual-transmission models. A look under the hood reveals unique valve covers with painted silver ribs and the "392 HEMI" logo, which gives the engine a unique, clean and aggressive look. The 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a standard Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission and a dual-disc high performance clutch -- a proven performer that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10®. The optional five-speed automatic transmission features new, standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that join the center console mounted Auto Stick, allowing for a choice of spirited shifting on both the road and the race track. Both methods give the driver the ability to manually select specific gears on the transmission. In "Drive," the transmission controller will automatically shift the vehicle. The aggressiveness of the shifting is defined by the mode chosen - either "Normal" or "Sport." Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more responsive while minimizing harshness. In "Manual," the shift method is defined by the driver choosing to use either paddle shift or Auto Stick. The "Sport" mode adds a hold function to the calibration in all gears, allowing the driver full control of the shifting schedule.

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)
