In order for Dodge to build the muscle car capable of hitting 60 mph in as little as 2.3 seconds, well, they first had to define what the purpose of this vehicle would be.
In short, it is straight line acceleration and literally nothing else. Sure, it is not as if the SRT Hellcat could also double as the track car, but if you are planning on going to the track, well, you best leave your Demon home.
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk 1/4 mile times. Dodge say that the possessed Challenger is able to hit the mark in 9.65 seconds, thanks not only to its 840 horsepower supercharged V8 engine, but also its street-legal Nitto drag radials.
You will have a better understanding for how it’s able to do what it does after watching the latest Engineering Explained video – which also touches on Dodge’s claim of 1.8 g’s during launch.
At the end, we get a peak at what the Dodge Demon vs Tesla Model S P100D drag race might look like, the math suggest that the Challenger would claim victory, despite Tesla being quicker in the 0 to 30 mph (48 km/h) range.
