Dodge SRT Demon - 840HP, 9.65 1/4

For a street configuration:

Illegal Machine
DeWayneV8
4/11/17 9:47pm
From Allpar:

“With the stock computer system running on premium gasoline (91+) and the huge 315 Nittos up front, the new supercharged Challenger will still lift the front wheels off of the ground on launch and it will still run a 9-second quarter mile – 9.90 to be exact.”

So a 9.90 on 91 Octane.

Its crazy to see a production car upgraded this far in modifications.


I think the time was put down with the skinny drag radials in the front not the 315s.

There were rumors that this was but it was not to be. There is the separate Trackhawk project Jeep though if you want AWD.

In general, I love to see cars where the manufacturers say F-it, let's do it. I do wonder if this spiralling one upsmanship is a indicator of the end of some sorts.

Do muscle cars have to be heavy? 200lbs lighter than the standard Hellcat is still a Curb weight of 4,293 lbs.

I might need to build a 450awhp Evo X just to be able to merge into traffic.

I hate ever increasing curb weights, but all this modern muscle does fine at anything reasonably sensible on the road. Track courses are the province of GM muscle and the alpha right now.

Dodge has partnered with a third party insurer to provide insurance on the cars. They did not mention how high the premiums would be though.

Not necessarily, but they also aren't meant to be Miata/Lotus/Porsche fighters.

It won't be Chevy or Ford answering. It will be Tesla. Elon Musk said the new Roadster they are developing will be the fastest Tesla ever produced.
