The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was the last hope of reviving the legend. The Dodge Demon gave way to Hellcat, so all true Demon lovers were not happy with the consolation prize. Both the Challenger and the Charger models come under the hat of the Hellcat, but the Challenger Demon was simply the best in speed, style, performance, and looks.
This car was meant for all those who love superhero and know what to do with them. So, do you know these things about the Dodge Demon?
Dodge Demon Means Different Things
The Dodge Demon doesn’t just refer to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, because in the past this beast is the holder of different things. At the start, Dodge Demon is called the muscle car of the 60s and 70s, the Dodge Dart, a sister car of the Plymouth Valiant.
In 2007, Daimler-Chrysler presented the car that would go under the hat on Viper and it was called Dodge Demon. But even in 2017, а applies to the 2018 model, Dodge Demon truly revived with its true performance package of the Challenger, when all true lovers understood what a Demon was capable of.
It Deep Inhale
The Dodge Demon has a big V8 engine and this V8 inhales deep to give you a sprint of 9.65 seconds at 140.09mph. Тo makes the big inhale it takes is approximately 173 cubic feet of air.
If this figure looks small, just to explain that 173 cubic feet of air are the lung capacity of 816 human beings. That’s why the Demon has a trademarked Air Grabber system.
The Dodge Demon- Ultimate Bat From Hell
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was a top muscle car. A 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine coupled with a 2.7-liter supercharger producе 808 horsepower.
Because of this crazy power, this car uses specialized tires to be able to withstand the g-force when Demon flies on the roads. Therefore Dodge Demon became the first car that had a set on radial road tires on it.
One Big Hot Engine
With such great performance that this car has there comes a great heat of the engine. Therefore V8’s cooling system must act quickly to prevent the engine fire. Basically should be extinguished some 258kW of heat power, and it is equal to 250 toasters all trying to ignite a fire under the hood. This heat can boil 4 glasses of water per second.
Despite the great power that this engine has, we believe in the superiority of the cooling systems without which the driver could not survive.
It Was Not Banned From NHRA
The Dodge Demon is the fastest car in the world because 0-60mph accelerates for 2.3 seconds, and from 0-30mph for one flat second.
The lack of this extremely fast car was that the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) requires any vehicle that has a quarter-mile time of fewer than 10 seconds had to have an NHRA-certified roll cage.
Because the Dodge Demon did not have the requisite crash-safety roll cage he was forbidden to compete.
The Beast Power
The Dodge Demon is a massive beast. Each engine stroke puts an 11-tonne might behind the rod and the piston, more than the weight of 5 Demons put together.
If this force is not enough, at 6,300 RPM, this 11 tonnes of force strikes more than 50 times per second, so that this beast can move.
Dodge Demon Has A Lot Of First Things
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the first car manufactured to move on high octane fuel and he has the highest horsepower production in the world.
Because from 0-60mph it accelerates in 2.3 seconds, it has one of the highest acceleration g-forces from any manufactured car in the world, that of 1.8g.
Although many cars have the option to delete the rear seat, the Demon gives you the ability to delete it and the front passenger seat. It allows you to enjoy the awesome interiors yourself, but also to reduce the weight of the vehicle and to go even faster.
The Amazing Torque Reserve
The Dodge Demon is the world’s first manufactured car that has torque reserve which basically holds on to 8 psi of power so jetted out from the 2.7-liter supercharger. That preventing the air from recirculating and holds it in reserve for a powerful startup from the start line.
But keep in mind that the supercharger spins at the engine rpm because there is no clutch disconnect. Then the fuel flow, as well as the ignition time, are also held back so that the engine can start between 1000-2400 RPM.
That Awesome Trans Brake
For all those who are not in the world of drag racing, a trans brake is a mechanism that does not allow the driver to be in first gear and reverse gear, simultaneously. This is the reason why all these Fast and Furious cars look very furious at the starting line.
All this creates a huge hydraulic pressure in the transmission and coupled with the torque launches the car from the start line with incredibly high speed. The Demon has the Transbrake and more importantly, it is the first car in the world to have one. How awesome is that!
Dodge Demon For Guinness!
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is much more than just a performance car. One of the things it does is, to raise the front wheels before launch when used together in tandem with Transbrake and the Torque Reserve.
The Dodge Demon made a Guinness World Record doing the longest wheelie at 2.92 feet, from a standing start. That’s why this car doesn’t just drive fast, it also drives cool.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a wonderful muscle car. Surely they will like it to all true car lovers around the world. Оf course, if Demon was still alive…
