Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170
The final “Last Call” Challenger Demon 170 is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 boasting an amazing output of 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb-ft of torque at 4200 rpm, when running on E85 ethanol blend fuel. Power gets sent to the rear wheels via a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. With the proper fuel and perfect track conditions, the Demon 170 will reach 60 mph in 1.66 seconds while delivering more than 2 Gs of acceleration force. The NHRA certified that the Demon 170 runs the quarter mile in 8.91 seconds at a speed of 151.17 mph — so quick that the NHRA immediately banned the Demon from competition for hitting this speed without a safety cage or parachute. However, both of these features are available (yes, Dodge will sell you a parachute).
