The Dodge Demon is Officially a nine 2nd Car That’s Banned from NHRA
The wait is ultimately over, the fresh two thousand eighteen Dodge Demon is the most powerful muscle car ever built. In fact, the term muscle car truly doesn’t do the Demon must justice. The fact is, this is a legitimate haul car. The Dodge Demon is the very first ever production car fitted with a four-point corset, haul radials, and trans brake. What makes this car even more insane is that it only takes one hundred octane; that’s right, so if you purchase one of these bad boys, you better live near a race track or gas station that sells it or you’ll be loving the Demon’s interior waiting for AAA.
Under the spandex hood of the Demon is an all-new 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi motor cranking out eight hundred forty horsepower and seven hundred seventy pounds-feet of torque, which makes this the most powerful production V8, ever. When Dodge says all fresh, they mean it. The only thing the Demon shares with its little Hellcat cousin are its cylinder goes. Everything else is all fresh, including a fresh deck honed block, pistons, crankshaft, connecting rods, camshaft, valve train and a fresh larger Two.7 liter supercharger.
- 0-30 mph: 1.0 2nd
- 0-60 mph: Two.Three seconds
- Quarter-mile: 9.65 seconds at one hundred forty mph
The Dodge Demon is so powerful that after the NHRA certified it’s 9.65 2nd 1/Four mile, they banned it from competition. Mainly because with a car this prompt from the factory you will need a competition license and extra safety equipment. Dodge is still observing this as a plus. “Being banned from the NHRA with this car at very first sounds like a negative but reality is it’s truly yam-sized street credibility for this car. Even the National Hot Rod Association says you’ve shoved too far, you’ve done too much, you’ve cracked a record that’s not supposed to be cracked in a production car. To me that letter is a badge of honor.” says Tim Kuniskis Head of Passenger Cars Dodge, SRT, FIAT, Chrysler of North America.
Take my money, Please.
MOPAR. CRED. End of Story.
Yes, it`s got a big price tag, but if you have to ask how much than you can`t afford it!
I have read around 100k so unreachable for the average person. So 100k one thousand five hundred bucks a month to have a car you cannot love unless want to go to jail or put a cell in it. Add another 5k a year for insurance too.
If the price tag is to high, for whomever, all well. Some people can only afford a Hyundai. And a lowly six cylinder Camaro/Stang/Callengern is out of there reach. Your point nil and void.
With the Demon, a box for
The hauls? No problem IF your planning on it.
Go to jail for a elementary drive? Or exploring the boundaries? Two different things. And the 2nd one being illegal would be just. Funny to note, this can also be done in a Hundai.
Most people don’t give a crap about a car that only goes swift in a straight line. The car doesn’t treat is wont brake prompt and is going to be a death trap to the average idiot that shouldn’t buy a quick car. Wait till you attempt to insure this thing good luck as no one is going to pick you up on it like attempting to put insurance on a 200k muscle car. Specialty insurance and high dollar. Take a z06/zl1/ctsv/gt500/or even a hellcat throw a one hundred shot on it and haul radials and hammer it and have a total package car. This format is a waste as cannot even go to track and love it unless you rip out the entire interior and put a twelve point box in it then go get your nine 2nd license and the other list of safety devices to make it nine 2nd legal. You can’t even showcase up and pedal it or tour the tree then get on it they won’t let you run period. A waste of a car and why it’s better to buy something else and make it quicker with support parts unless you just have 200k to throw away at buying and then rebuilding a car. Fact is if GM put a vin number in a COPO then sold that this car wouldn’t be close to any record as that car runs 8s as GM sells it. So if they want in this stupid game too mopar loses.
Actually, it comes from the factory tuned to run on ninety one octane which results in consistent low 10s so yes you can take it to your local track and demolish any stock camaro or vette GM ever produced!! Haggerty has partnered with srt and is the official insurance company for the demon so no worries there either and if you are worried about the price of insurance you very likely can’t afford the car anyway!! Brilliant marketing by SRT.
Honestly, I bet it will tech in IHRA as they seem to be well lax on their inspections as compared to NHRA. I reminisce years ago I had a Oldsmobile that failed tech for NHRA a few times for different reasons and it passed very first attempt with IHRA. Honestly, with shows like Street Outlaws so popular now, I see this as a rich kid’s car who wants to attempt to predominate the street.
Wow. A GManiac. Joe needs a laxative. Just stick with your 50cc scooter & half-shell helmet, Joe, these cars are way too much for you. Don’t play with firearms, either, Joe. We don’t need any more sad statistics.
He’s most likely a snowflake who voted for the Hag, too! Him telling that “the average idiot shouldn’t buy a prompt car” and “is wont brake rapid”, is proof that he was talking about himself!
Well I would trust a person that voted for Hillary over one that voted for that vile, narcissistic, racist, lounging caboose bigot (45) we are watching ruin America. Still a excellent country where building/buying a car like this is legal/possible, but that is in dire straights too….
OK, you had to mention politics, so don’t leap on me for elaborating the truth that so despairingly needs to be told.
I was right! Hahahahahaha!
You master are an idiot.
I beg to differ haul racers all love to go prompt in a straight line. Thats what muscle cars were all about in the 60’s and 70’s. Chrysler pumped out big block motors in most every car they built. Ford and GM had their big block cars in fact so did American Motors back then. I personally would love a fresh Challenger but not possible on retired GI pay. This car will be like the Viper they sell them but in very limited numbers and eight hundred plus HP is insane for street cars. Your right about one thing the insurance will be very costly. Just rich kids fucktoys.
WOW! Sounds like you have a case of “Sour Grapes!”
But even so, IF the average idiot determines to make the purchase, that is there call. And GOD bless’em.
Yes they built the car swift and potentially dangerous, and yes there is a COPO car that is even swifter but car companies build them for advertising, publicity, oh yes and to make a profit.
If you can afford the car and buy the car it becomes your responsibility, did you get that “your responsibility” do with it as you wish and take responsibility for what happens.
What happened to just building a car. How much will you have to prove when you just go and buy one. Myself I like to see what my mitt’s have built
Big thumbs up. Over here, IT IS, built not bought.
IMO, there’s no shame buying built. Saves a lot of headaches!
But there is a bit of pride to say “I built it!” Which can not be done with bought.
my 27T cost $34,000 to build mid eight seconds
And yes I’m just a poor gearhead
I thought in the 60s and 70s we had reached the high point but was we wrong.
I think they did! Then there were issues all around that limited things. Government, insurance, EPA are the big three issues slowing down the HP war.
It was awesome back in the day! No doubt!
It was the high point, my fresh sixty six GTO had an MSRP of under $3700. That being said, Wow!
my sixty six vette was $9165 canadian
Wonder how many rich daddys boys are going wreck these cars.more money than brains. I build my cars not buy them. But wouldnt mind one of these.

I am a Chevy boy but, even I know how Dodge predominated back in the day, in spite of poor ignition systems. People could hate all they want but my hats off to you and all I have to say is WOW. Now come on Chevy ;o)
Well, it isn’t like your average kid that washes dishes at the local twenty four hour grub spot is going to be able to get to own such a weapon anyway;. Now I admit that I haven’t learned yet what the cost of such a lovely S.O.B. is but I do know that most of the folks that get to actually own one of them wont be the typical person that could drive it or would drive it around. The car will be a trophy sitting in a showroom or in the last slot of the six crevice garage. Nobody we know will even know somebody who knows somebody that knows somebody that seen one sitting at some boy’s mansion so just leave behind about observing one tearing up the streets around Your Petite Town, USA. But I bet we will see one at car shows, on television in the arms of drivers with credentials as long as your arm and who knows maybe they’ll explode one for some movie. which there should be laws against. AND insurance? You mean to actually drive the car on the street ? Insurance? Give the VIN to your agent and if your name isn’t Stewart or Force or Johnson or something along them lines leave behind it, it isn’t going to be able to be insured but for only a few elite IN THEIR GARAGE.
You have to wonder what it would actually be like being able to drive one and attempt to get it to meet up hard ion all the conditions and attitudes your heart can desire of. I like to go SLIDEWAYS and also like to hook as hard as I can get grip so it sure would be joy to have a chance to drive something with Cup peak power but even better low to mid-range power than the
best NASCAR cup cars.
that resembloes and actually IS a street car.
I own a supercharged Viper that I bought fresh and my wifey and I did All of the work ourselves. This looks like a reasonable way to get to 9.7 seconds. Your point about insurance is a good one. I have my Viper insured for the dollar amount that I want if something happened to it. (No repairs.) They have a track exclusion that you can buy the supplemental insurance for track days.(very expensive) All of that said; you would Own the street!
Any way you look at it, it’s still a Dodge.
A bunch of rich kids will die in these things within seconds of being behind the wheel and killing others such as mothers and families that don’t have time to grab the kids off the picnic blanket, heck they most likely will come to rest in the living room or nursery. God forbid maybe even a school yard. Only Fiat Chrysler would be stupid enough to take a car like this and put it on the street. I abandon JEEP Mopar back in the Daimler days and now they’ve submerged to this. Law firms will sue and they will get their aces passed to them by big name lawyers, but they already know and the handwriting is on the wall that they are going out of business anyway. Chrysler can’t make a decent reliable family sedan, anyone would buy, and their a foreign car that is less reliable than a KIA, or anything so why buy? Maybe Stupid? The feds need to make these off road only now before guiltless people die. The NHRA already knows this. lol
It’s called – Freedom of Choice.
We Line in a Free democratic country- this is a product for sale. @lance_rob:disqus
If it makes you – FEEL GOOD – BUY IT.
Freedom to buy any product – you wish.
YES it is the ULTIMATE – American Iron- Muscle car.
If you can’t treat it – Don’t Buy it.
But Don’t Sob about your Whimpiness to Everyone.
I’ve wielded and raced- Yes on the street – the fastest motorcycles and cars made at one time or other.
The adrenalin – High is what it is all about.
If I have to explain -you don’t Get It.
I’ll buy a Demon -ASAP.
This POS is only banned for not having a roll cell not because its too rapid. I work at a dodge dealer and have seen the few we sold come back with major engine failure. since when is fiat an American automaker? Can’t be an American Muscle car if your Italian. Besides look at the dyno sheets the car stays in the 300-400 hp range most of the way to redline. not a very awesome car at all. Just another fail by the largest failure in automotive history.
