The Car Show : Dodge Challenger Demon

Dodge Challenger introduced to the market for the first time in 1969-1970 is said to be the Most Powerful Muscle Car. First generation of Challenger series started from 1969 and continued till 1974. First generation Dodge became the biggest rival to Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro which were introduced before Challenger. Challenger with more luxury interior and more space inside was the best selling car among these three. After this success Dodge introduced the Second generation of  challenger series in 1978 which continued till 1983 but this time Dodge changed the engines and look and made it a subcompact car for all. 

After a long time in 2008 Dodge made a comeback in the market with a brand new look which is completely different from the First and second generation challengers. This time Challenger came with 2 doors and an engine built for power. With every year passing we were seeing a change in the concept and power of this series, engines were upgrading, comfort level gone up and in 2018 Dodge introduced the most powerful challenger and muscle car ever produced DODGE CHALLENGER SRT DEMON. 

This time Dodge made the most powerful V8 engine which has the ability to generate a horsepower of 840. With an 8 speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive and a 770 lb-ft supercharged 6.2 litre V8 engine makes it the most powerful Muscle car ever made. You can say that this is an upgraded version of 2015s Dodge Challenger Hellcat which has the ability to generate 707 hp power from his supercharged V8 engine under the hood. But the Demon being 98 kg lighter than the Hellcat is more luxurious, more powerful, more reliable and more fast than all its previous versions. With the purchase of Demon user receives a Demon crate with Demon track pack system, Toolbox and many more other things. Made especially for the drag racing Demon goes from 0-60 mph in justb 2.3 seconds and completes a quarter mile in just 9.65 seconds with 140 mph. First ever production car which can lift front wheel as high as 2.92m

However this car was discontinued by Dodge as some sources said that it is way to powerful for the drag race format but the main reason behind that the challenger lacks in the safety segment. This car is a beast and if you are driving a beast you need to be safe inside before taking it out for a ride. The last Demon was sold in an auction along side with Dodge Viper. Now the Demon is banned from the public roads but Dodge is working on another model of Dodge Challenger and let’s see how dodge will make a comeback with his new and improved version of Challenger. Maybe it is banned now but this V8 engine defeated many V12 engines in a drag race an no other muscle car is able to match the power of this Beast.
