Burn It Up With the 2018 Dodge Demon

Since you were a kid, you’ve dreamed of having a fast, powerful car that would shake the houses as you drove through the neighborhood. You’ve imagined it roaring so distinctly that your friends and family would hear you from miles away, and it would drive so fast that it’s barely street-legal. Well, now you’re an adult and there’s no mommy or daddy to tell you “no.” You can finally have that beast of a vehicle.

There are plenty of cars out there with lots of horsepower and torque, so where should you start? Start — and end — with the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon. Once you’re pressed into your seat by this monster’s acceleration, you’ll never go back.

Track Worthy

As soon as you get on the road in your Demon, you’ll want to push it to its limits. You’ll finally find that roar you’ve always wanted with the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Demon V8 engine that generates 808 horsepower.

If you’re brave enough to take it off the streets and on the track, you’ll get pushed into your seat by the highest g-forces in any production vehicle. In fact, the Demon is also the fastest quarter-mile production car in the world, even beating out exotic cars that cost over a million dollars. With a starting MSRP of $84,995, you can have a vehicle that’s less than a tenth of the price of exotic sports cars.

Prepped to Perform

With all that speed, the Demon must be built to handle it. A Torque Reverse Launch system manages the power output by filling the supercharger prior to launch while also controlling the fuel flow and spark timing, giving you a higher boost pressure and shorter launch times. A 45-square-inch Air Grabber hood scoop is the largest of any production hood scoop and keeps the engine consistently supplied with cool air.

Any fast car needs strong brakes, and the Demon comes ready with lightweight, four-piston Brembo brakes with slotted, two-piece rotors.

Designed for Mean Speed

The mean, wide body combined with the menacing Air-Grabber hood scoop aren’t the only things that give the Demon a great design. In addition to the Air-Grabber scoop, Dual Illuminated Air-Catcher Headlamps provide extra airflow through the engine compartment, allowing you to keep up your speed without sacrificing performance or overheating your engine. The Demon’s Drag Radial tires are also the first to come factory equipped on a production vehicle, and they’re built for burning rubber on the track.

If you plan on making a habit of hitting the track with the Demon, you’ll want to get the Demon Track Pack System, which is fitted for your trunk so you can easily transport tools and front runners.

Don’t let this dream slip through your fingers. You won’t regret taking the chance to own one of the fastest cars in the world for a far more affordable price than other vehicles in its speed family. For more news on the Dodge Demon, stay tuned in to Rairdon CDJ of Monroe.
