With the insane Dodge Demon reportedly now hitting dealerships, we thought it would be worthwhile to remind everyone the craziness factor of this car.
The Dodge Demon has a mind-blowing 840 horsepower. In effect, the Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) - Get Report owned Dodge has developed a street legal race car. That caught the ire of Automotive News, which penned a story in April saying the Demon should not be street legal. Nevertheless, the Demon goes 0 to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds. Quarter mile time is 9.65 seconds on first-ever for a production car street legal drag tires.
Meanwhile, the Demon weighs about 215 pounds less than a 707hp Dodge Hellcat. To cut the weight, Dodge has removed the passenger front seat and rear bench seat. It also boasts a massive new hood scoop that supports what Dodge calls a "forced induction" system. The car also has a dedicated drag race driving mode.
To round out the fun is the Demon Crate, a special equipment pack that turns the car from a regular street ride into to an all-out drag-strip demolisher. The crate will boast 18 parts that set the car up for the drag strip, including performance parts, track tools, spare wheels and something it calls the "Demon Track Pack System."
Oh and yes, the Demon will be able to run on special racing fuel. Dodge plans to only make 3,300 Dodge Demons. Hello instant collectible.
