The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is not a car for normal people. For starters, it comes standard with only one seat. Because passenger seats, and passengers, weigh too much and would slow it down. Your friends aren't worth that.
Then there's the engine. The Demon's 840-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 is the most powerful V8 engine ever put into a regular production car. That makes the Demon the most powerful factory-produced muscle car... ever.
The Demon has already recorded the fastest quarter-mile run by a factory production car ever, as officially certified by the National Hot Rod Association. Starting from a dead stop, a Demon made the drag strip run in just 9.65 seconds.
It also has the fastest zero to 60 time for any production car, according to Dodge, at 2.3 seconds. And the fastest zero to 30 time at 1.3 seconds. All of this leads to it having the most rib-crushing acceleration G-force of any production car. Helping that are the huge buckets of air the engine can suck in through the largest functional hood scoop made for any production car.
Motor Tend magazine has said that the record quickest zero-to-60 run by a factory production car, in its testing, had been by the Tesla Model S P100D. In the hands of Motor Trend test drivers, the Tesla accelerated to 60 miles an hour in 2.28 seconds. (There are various methods for measuring zero to 60 acceleration that can yield different results.)
The Demon is also the first production car able to accelerate so hard it can lift its front wheels off the pavement, a feat that has been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. The front wheel can stay up in the air for almost three feet.

As long as it’s my seat, one should be enough.
Okay, what kind of gas mileage does it get.
I shuttle the family to the grocery store and mall a bit and need a car that gets good mileage. :)
I just read you can get the other seats put back for one dollar.
It’s measured in gallons per mile.
I remember seeing a documentary on the Autobahn in Germany years ago.At one point they discuss accidents that occur on that highway...the parts that don’t have speed limits.A German policeman said that often the victims of such accidents are so badly mangled that they can’t even be recognized as being human.
I have always wanted a hot car but it would also have to be a daily driver.
So, what is the Fuel Economy when cruising at 80 mph?
This will be extremely useful in everyday city driving.
I mean, every damn day people are passing me, fast, and I am driving over the posted limit, to get to a red light. They will get to the red light so much quicker.
The brake companies are saying, yeah make more of these cars!
Seriously, neat enginering beind this car.
Does it have a radio?
Oh yeah. I hadn’t considered that...
Sounds like a great car to use to take the dog to the park when he has to go bad.
And cup holders. It must have cup holders!
I asked my wife if we had $100K laying around so I could buy one. Apparently we don’t.
