• Dodge Demon: At the Drag Strip in the World’s Fastest Accelerating Production Car [Video]


    When you bring out the fastest accelerating production car in the world, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, there’s only one way to introduce it, at a drag strip. TFL was lucky enough to sit in the front seat as Dodge showed off the Demon’s 1/4-mile awesomeness and take you along for the ride. Along the way, Roman has Dodge spell out the top-five firsts owned by the Demon.

    #5 – World’s Fastest 0-60 MPH Production Vehicle

    It’ll hit 60 mph from a dead stop in 2.3 seconds. To pull this feat of explosive propulsion off Dodge specified special tires to handle the monstrous 770 lb-ft. of torque to the rear wheels. The tires are so specialized for drag racing that the car is limited to a top speed of 160 MPH. The tires are spec’d to go any faster.

    #4 – World’s First Production Car With Front-Wheel Lift

    A purpose-built and tuned suspension moves all that torque to the rear wheels and consequently lifts the front end. You gotta see it to believe it.

    #3 – World’s Fastest 1/4-Mile for a Production Vehicle

    It’ll cover the distance in 9.65 seconds. In other words, lightning fast.

    #2 – World’s Highest Acceleration G-Force in a Production Vehicle

    Try 1.8 g’s that will slam you back into the driver’s seat and drain the blood from your face.

    #1 – Highest horsepower (840) in a Production V8 Engine

    This one speaks for itself.

    Plus! All these best-in-the-world marks and firsts can be had for just under $85,000 from Dodge. Don’t forget that includes a factory warranty.
