2017 New York: The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon unleashed–Quick Rundown

It’s the most powerful muscle car ever and is so freakin’ fast, it’s banned by the NHRA.

What’s going on?

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. That’s what the hell is going on (see what I did there?). And Dodge finally unleashed the beast this evening ahead of the New York International Auto Show Press days.

We’re not going to muck about: it’s absolutely bonkers. There’s a lot you need to know, but here’s a quick rundown of what’s important:

Engine
  • 6.2L HEMI Supercharged Demon V8
    • Horsepower: 840 (on racing gas)
    • Torque: 770 pound-feet
Transmission
  • A seriously beefed-up ZF-sourced eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic
Performance
  • 0-30 mph: 1.0 second
  • 0-60 mph: 2.3 seconds
  • Quarter-mile: 9.65 seconds at 140 mph

There’s plenty more to know. But these are the most pertinent specs of the latest Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

Stay tuned for more!
