Although it doesn’t come right out and say so with an exterior label, there are many cues Dodge added to the Demon to visually separate it from the rest of the Challenger lineup. The most distinctive feature, aside from the Demon head emblems on the front quarter panels, is the largest hood scoop of any production car...Dodge calls it the Air Grabber. The air grabber is so large, Dodge claims that in a quarter-mile it captures enough air to fill the lungs of 800 humans. They also added a sizable front splitter, rear trunk lid wing, and extended fender flares to deal with the larger drag-slicks.
With statistics like the fastest accelerating production car ever made and the most powerful V8 engine in the history of the automobile, there isn’t really much to say about the mechanics of this car that it doesn’t already say for itself. That being said, the numbers make for a staggering read. An all-new 6.2L V8 featuring a 2.7L Supercharger was designed for the Demon. Adding the attachments provided in the famous $1 Demon Box makes the car capable of 840hp and 777lb/ft of torque. This performance makes it the quickest accelerating road car available (0-60mph in 2.3sec), the hardest launching production vehicle of all time (1.85 G’s), the fastest non-electric car to complete the quarter-mile (9.65 sec) and the record holder for the longest wheelie of any production vehicle. Suffice to say, the Demon is an out of the crate drag machine, capable of taking you to your limits.
