Forget everything you know about a muscle car. Forget the Hellcat. This car hasn't just replaced the Hellcat, it's shattered it and blown in apart. And along the way, it's broken a couple of records along the way.
The world’s fastest production vehicle 0-60mph time. It'll do 0-60 in just 2.3 seconds. Take a few seconds and just absorb it in. 2.3 seconds.Wow. That means it beats the Bugatti Chiron and the Tesla P100D. But there's no doubt that Tesla is going to break that record in the future.
The world’s fastest-ever production car over the quarter mile. The latest hypercars from Mclaren, Ferrari and Porsche will do "only" 9.8 seconds. This'll do it into 9.65 seconds and hit a top speed of 140mph. The Chiron might brea tht in the future when it's finished.
The world’s first production car to fully lift its front wheels while accelerating. Yes, you read that right: the Demon pulls wheelies. Not huge, rear bumper-destroying ones. But a wheelie is a wheelie when it’s the world’s first. And that’s not just Dodge’s claim – it brought along the folks from the Guinness World Records to verify it, which they did. It was only for 2.92ft (0.89m) but it earned the Demon the title of ‘The longest wheelie from a standing start in a production car’.
The highest production car acceleration G-force. Just think about how much 1.8G feels. Just think.
Been banned by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) from any of its member tracks. Just for being too fast and obliterating all contest.
While the Hellcat peaks at 707bhp and 650lbft at 4,000rpm, it'll do 808bhp and 717lbft.
The weight saving diet's quite strict too. The "standard" Demon (if you can call a Demon standard) has just 1 seat. If you want a passenger seat it'll come in for just $1 and the same for a rear passenger seat. But we wouldn't like that will we? You're driving all on your own. How brilliant is that? Saves weight as well which is definitely what you want, with a 0-60 time of just 2.3 seconds.
Other weight loss measures include smaller brakes, lighter wheels, stereo and no spare wheel.
With all of that performance and specs, get in the queue...
