Dedicated to sports carz, super carz, and the best the industry has to offer in the hypercarz automotive sector. Enjoy!
Powered by a 840-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V-8, the limited-production Dodge Demon is the world's most powerful factory-production V-8 - bar none. NHRA-certified 9.65 seconds @ 140 mph makes the Dodge Demon the fastest Quarter-mile car in the world.
World Record Holder
The Dodge Demon also is the world's first production car to lift the front wheels at launch and set the world record for longest wheelie from a standing start by a production car at 2.92 feet, certified by Guinness World Records. And the Dodge Demon also registers the highest g-force (1.8 g) ever recorded at launch in a production car.
The Dodge Demon's record-setting performance is the result of collaboration among the Dodge and SRT, Design, Engineering, Powertrain and Manufacturing teams inside FCA US LLC, many of whom are experienced and active drag racers. While the 2018 Dodge Demon remains a potent street car, every component was scrutinized and optimized for weight, capability and durability on the strip.
More Than a HellcatWhile the Demon V-8 shares its architecture with the 707-hp 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Hellcat V-8, it is not simply a Hellcat engine with more boost. The Demon V-8 engine has 25 major component upgrades from the Hellcat engine, including supercharger, pistons, rods, valve train and fuel injection system.
Air Grabber Hood
One key to the Challenger SRT Demon's best-ever power output is air - the supercharged Demon V-8 takes in plenty of it. The SRT Demon's Air-Grabber™ hood includes the largest functional hood scoop (45.2 square inches) of any production car.
The Air-Grabber hood is sealed to the air box, which is also fed from the driver-side Air-Catcher headlamp and an inlet near the wheel liner. Combined, those sources give the Demon V-8 an air-flow rate of 1,150 cubic feet per minute, 18 percent greater than the Hellcat V-8 and the largest air induction volume of any production car.
The innovative Power Chiller is a production car first. It diverts the air-conditioning refrigerant from the Demon's interior to a chiller unit mounted by the low-temperature circuit coolant pump. Charge air coolant, after being cooled by ambient air passing through a low-temperature radiator at the front of the vehicle, flows through the chiller unit, where it is further cooled. The chilled coolant then flows to the heat exchangers in the supercharger.
High Octane Fuel
The Demon is the first-ever, street-legal factory-production car designed to run on 100+ unleaded high-octane fuel. That fuel is readily available at select gas stations, specialty shops and drag strips.
The keys to unleashing the SRT Demon's full performance fury are in the Demon Crate: Direct Connection Performance Parts include a new powertrain control module calibrated for the high-octane unleaded fuel and a new switch bank for the center stack that includes a high-octane button.
The Dodge Demon is the first-ever, factory-production car with TransBrake, which locks the transmission output shaft to hold the car in place before a standing start. This lets the driver increase engine speed up to 2,350 rpm without overpowering the brakes, resulting in quicker power delivery and up to 15 percent more torque at launch.
Launch Control-Wheel Hop
SRT engineers went digital to isolate and resolve one of the biggest challenges to clean launches and driveline integrity - wheel hop.
In simple terms, wheel hop happens when tires quickly slip and regain traction at launch, rapidly storing up and releasing energy in the driveline. These high torque spikes can quickly and severely damage driveline components - and up until now, the only solution was to back out of the throttle.
Not with the Dodge Demon. In a first for a factory-production car, the Demon's Launch Assist uses the wheel speed sensors to watch for signs that the tires are slipping or sticking. If slip is detected, the Demon's control module momentarily reduces engine torque to maximize traction almost instantly - without the driver having to lift. Launch Assist reduces loads in the driveline from wheel hop by more than 15 to 20 percent, dramatically reducing component damage.
The Challenger SRT Demon is equipped with a set of four standard Nitto NT05R street-legal, drag-race tires, a first for a factory-production car.
The sticky drag tires are mounted on lightweight 11x18-inch wheels, with each tire measuring 12.6 inches wide. Putting full-size tires at all four corners gives drag racers an extra set of rear tires when the front tires are replaced with narrow front-runners at the track.
A definition - a small, usually two seat, two door car designed for spirited performance and nimble handling. Sports carz may be spartan or luxurious but high maneuverability and minimum weight are a prerequisite.
A definition - an expensive high end sports car, specifically a very expensive, fast or powerful car. Generally it must be very fast, with sporting handling to match, it should be sleek and eye-catching and its price should be one in a rarefied atmosphere of its own.
A definition - a design concept car developed with ultra-light construction, aerodynamic styling using advanced composite materials, low-drag design, and can incorporate hybrid drives. Hypercarz can also include limited production specials from elite automakers, that have massive power and performance, as well as concept models that appeal to a variety of auto enthusiasts
