The new king of drag-track comes from Dodge – marked Demon, even offers 840 horsepower and achieves 60 miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds!
Fans of muscle car and drag racing have a new hero. Hero comes (normal) from America, called Dodge Challenger Demon. It carries the same 6.2-liter V8 compressor which is already installed in the Challenger Hellcat, but now the compressor is higher, and elaborated and engine – and a stand even 840 horsepower. This allows the Challenger Demon accelerate to 60 miles per hour (96 mph) in just 2.3 seconds and a quarter mile pass of 9.65 seconds at 225 mph.
Additionally, Challenger Demon stick and an extraordinary record – this is the first vehicle in serial production in the world whose front end is separated from the ground during heavy acceleration, and acceleration achieves 1.8g. Owners receive two different keys – one allows access to “only” 500 horsepower, while the second provides access to 808 horsepower on 91 octane fuel, ie all 840 horsepower of 100+ octane fuel.
The transfer is to the rear wheels through strengthened TorqueElite 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission. The new gearbox allows the Demon to transfer power to the axles in front of a standing start, which in turn improves the launch of the drag track. The system “keeps the” engine of the ideal 2350 rpm for a perfect launch, and thanks to the drag-Nitto tires (which are legal to drive on normal roads!) Power at launch is increased by 40% compared to the Hellcat.
Demon e more than 90 kg lighter than the Hellcat, and the savings are due to the removed front passenger seat and rear seats, 16-speaker used are hollow tubes of some components, and many parts are aluminum. Because less-or more entire interior is gone, removed and many of the cables used for components in the cabin. Customers who want the passenger seat and the rear bench can be ordered for only $ 1 each.
The price of the Dodge Challenger Demon is not yet known, but production will begin this summer. It will be produced 3,000 copies in the United States and 300 copies in Canada.
