If there is one recent new vehicle that we are truly excited about finally being on the road, it’s got to be the brand-new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Literally the fastest production car ever manufactured, the Dodge Demon is a muscle-bound freak of nature. Well, technically, a freak of engineering. So, we thought we’d go through some of the specifics about the end product of that engineering, by diving into some of the car’s incredible performance specs and official times.

“With Demon, our goal was to build a car that would tattoo the Dodge logo into the subconscious of the general market, beyond even our loyal enthusiasts. To do so, we had to set records that have never been set before, do more than has ever been done before, go beyond even the legendary Hellcat. The result: … [a] muscle car unlike anything that has ever come before it.”
– Tim Kuniskis, Head of Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat Passenger Cars, FCA North America

Would you like to hear some more fun facts? It is the only production car in history to pop a wheelie from the launch. 1.8 g is the highest g-force acceleration ever recorded by a production car. It’s the fasted quarter-mile production car in the world. And most excitingly, it has officially been banned form competition by the National Hot Rod Association. That means even the biggest hot rod enthusiasts in the world think it’s too much.
There are many more first-evers in the Demon, so we could go on all day. But if you’re interested in a Demon of your own, be sure to order one while you can, as only 3,000 will be made available here in the United States.
