The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon promises to be the toughest muscle car that the industry has ever seen. This model delivers more than 800 horsepower to the road, but it can be hard to see that kind of power. Fortunately, Wheels put the Demon up against the awe-inspiring, 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat to help you visualize the difference that an extra 100+ horsepower makes.
The video depicts the Demon and Hellcat muscle cars going head to head in a quarter-mile drag race. The race kicks off with the Hellcat jumping off the start line a tad quicker. It should come as no surprise that the Demon passed it in no time at all. In the end, the Demon completes the quarter-mile run in 10.07 seconds with a speed of 133.84 mph. The Hellcat finished about a second later, 11.09 seconds, at a speed of 124.22 mph.
That doesn’t sound like much, but in drag racing, even a few tenths of a second can be the decider in a close race. If the video proved anything, it’s that the 2018 Dodge SRT Challenger Demon lives up to its name, putting out diabolic power and crushing quarter miles with ease.
Both the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat are testaments to the performance expertise of Dodge and SRT. To experience for yourself the raw, unmitigated power of Dodge’s latest performance beasts, stop by Gossett CDJR.
