These immensely powerful cars use the 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine that produces 717 hp in the Hellcat and 808 hp in the SRT Demon
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the highest horsepower production V8 in the world, and the first production car designed to run on high octane fuel. Since it does 0-60mph in an insanely dizzying 2.3 seconds, it has one of the highest acceleration g-forces in any production car in the world – that of 1.8g.
Thanks to its Demon Crate, the Challenger Demon is a little better prepared for drag racing, but even if you don’t use the crate, you still have more power at your disposal, which is why the Demon beat the Hellcat Redeye during this race.
According to Jalopnik, when reached for pricing, a sales manager admitted, reluctantly, that the dealer wants $200,000 for each. No wonder they don’t list that price online—the Demon debuted with an $85,000 MSRP.
DETROIT — If you want a car with 840 horsepower that can go from zero to 60 in 2.3 seconds, it’ll cost you $84,995. Plus another dollar. That’s the starting price for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which Fiat Chrysler says is the most powerful production car ever.
Introduced as the third generation Challenger received its facelift the Hellcat name has gone from strength to strength and seen plenty of successful iterations from the more powerful Redeye to the Widebody. The SRT Hellcat’s two-key system makes cars safer and highly practical.

Standard Nitto drag radials give the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon some of the highest grip levels of any car ever produced. In fact there’s so much grip that the Demon pulls the highest acceleration forces of any production car – pulling 1.8g of accelerative force – 40% more launch force than a Hellcat.
The good news is that the Demon will only increase in value due to its rare pedigree and provenance. Like any luxury car, sports car, or high-performance car, it will need to be well maintained to retain as much value.
The Hellcat took only 10.86 seconds, whereas the Camaro ZL1 required 11.28 seconds to complete the Quarter Mile. The definitive winner among the two muscle cars was the Dodge SRT Challenger Hellcat that proved the fact that despite not being the fastest Dodge, it cranked out powerful ponies to reach the finish line.
The Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 develops 707 hp and has a top speed of 199 mph. The result is that the Hellcat can reach the magic 180 mph figure at a much quicker pace. The Hellcat’s quicker acceleration also means it would need less highway to get up to speed.
The form also says customers shouldn’t drive the Demon in wet weather conditions where there is a risk of hydroplaning, or move the vehicle at temperatures below 15 degrees Fahrenheit because the drag tires can lose flexibility and crack.
