The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon, aka the most powerful muscle car in history, started shipping on Nov. 10, 2017, which means 3,300 customers (3,000 in the United States, 300 in Canada) are beginning to receive their limited-production, 840-horsepower SRT Demon.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you already know that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the industry’s first and only purpose-built, street-legal production drag car. You may not know that it’s certified by the National Hot Rod Association as the world’s fastest quarter-mile production vehicle with an elapsed time of 9.65 seconds at 140 miles per hour. And that it’s capable of achieving 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.
That’s a lot of power to picture. So let us help you put a visual to it: It pops a wheelie when you put the pedal to the metal. And that’s pretty damn cool. So cool, in fact, it’s certified by Guinness World Records as the first-ever production car to achieve a front-wheel lift.
