Dodge builds Quickest Car in the World
« on: April 12, 2017, 09:20:49 AM »
If you can afford the tickets, that is....

The wide-body Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a barely street-legal drag racer with a V8 that can produce up to 840 HP and 770 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful American car ever. It’s also the quickest car in the world, with an NHRA certified 0-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.

Dodge didn’t just turn up the boost on the Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 707 hp 6.2-liter supercharged engine to unleash its inner beast, it updated more than half of its parts and added a laundry list of production-first and high tech features to the Demon.




There’s a larger displacement 2.7-liter supercharger that runs at 14.5 psi boost; strengthened rods, pistons and valvetrain; twin dual-stage fuel pumps; and the largest hood scoop ever used on a muscle car: a 45.2 square inch intake Dodge calls the Air-Grabber that’s apparently still not huge enough, because there’s a second intake in the middle of the inside driver’s side headlight and a third near the wheel liner. At full throttle, the Demon can suck all of the air out of a single-car garage in less than two minutes.

Instead of a simple cold air intake, the Demon cools things down by routing refrigerant from its air conditioner system through a chilling unit that helps drop the temperature of the ambient air by up to 45 degrees before the supercharger stuffs it into the cylinder. There, it can be mixed with as low as 91-octane fuel and turn it into 808 hp and 717 pound feet, but an optional engine controller can be installed that lets it run on 100-octane race fuel to unlock full 840/770, and it doesn’t even void the five-year/60,000-mile warranty. If there’s a blend in the tank, it’ll figure out the best way to burn it.

What about the Car Insurance?   :lol:

I know me, I can't be allowed anywhere near it. There was a time in my life, when the only mail I got was a summons to appear for speeding. :blush:

I have been very lucky in my life.  One speeding ticket in my life time.
God know I should have one for every time in get in the truck and get on the main road, around 30.000.

Good luck on finding insurance.

Definitely a specialty market. It will be a theft target and the owner did not buy it to go 35 MPH.

My neighbor liked very fast sports cars.  But they did not go fast  enough, so he took a jet flying school class. Then got himself a jet.  He started flying at age 18 got himself a single engine airplane and then a twin engine airplane.  He dumped his sports car for the jet.   :lol:

Oddly enough the General will insure it and it wasn't that much, my truck costs more to insure. Though I don't know the price tag, they have a limit of $75 thousand, and this car may be over that more than likely.
I should have checked what a Vet costs to insure.
