To even add to this auspicious event, Dodge proclaims that it is shaking the foundation of the entire performance car industry.

Such big words, but will the Demon live up to it? Most definitely! The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has the highest horsepower V-8 production car engine ever produced.

The Demon is also a Guinness World Records holder for being the first ever front-wheel lift in a production car for having 2.92 feet. To make things even better, it is TOO fast for the drag strip, it was officially banned by National Hot Rod Association or NHRA. Its engines when in full throttle can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 2.3-seconds, the fastest ever in a production car!
