Dodge Demon redefines muscle cars

Dodge not only revived the muscle car era, it improved it. Read on to see the extent Dodge SRT have taken to make Demon the world’s greatest!

Superbee, GT350 Mustang, 428 Cobra, and Yenko Camaro all defined the muscle car era a long time ago. Fifty years on and one car revives the muscle car era with 2018 technology – Dodge Demon.

The two center driving lamps are not really lamps. They are actually two of the three cold air intake ports to maximize air density for the engine.

Based on the Challenger body, Demon has broken all records for any production car.  840hp is the highest of any V8 production car ever produced. At 1.8G, Demon has the greatest launch G-force of any production car. Demon is the first production car to offer front wheel lift on launch. Zero to 60mph is smashed to 2.3 seconds, the best for any production car ever built. NHRA confirms the Dodge Demon achieved the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds for a staggering 140.09 mph, another record broken for any production car ever built.

At 840hp (646 kw) Dodge Challenger SRT DEMON is the most powerful production car available. The huge cold air intake shown above is just one of three sources for intake air. 1. The Air-Grabber (TM) hood scoop, 2 the dual air catcher headlamps and there is another air inlet in the wheel fender.

There are twenty-five performance enhancements over the Hellcat including a larger supercharger; increased boost pressure; higher RPM of 6,500rpm maximum. Up from 6,200rpm maximum in Hellcat. Two dual stage fuel pumps compare to Hellcat’s one.

What is the SRT Power Chiller (TM) – keeping induction air as cool as possible results in more air density. Compressing air in a supercharger will heat air and reduce some of the advantages of pressurized induction. The Power Chiller (TM) diverts engine intake air through a container chilled by the vehicles air conditioning unit, lowering intake air temperature by up to 45 degrees (F) and adding just the right amount of edge to make this Demon the most powerful production car in the world.

After a run on the drag strip, the engine components need a properly coordinated cool down. Demon includes an After-Run Cooler to keep circulating air and engine coolant even after the engine is shut down. The cockpit information panel through Uconnect (R) provides a supercharger coolant temperature reading to let you know when your supercharger is at the optimum temperature for your next run.
