Dodge is sending off its V8 muscle cars with its most powerful Challenger ever. The “Last Call” Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 makes 1025 hp and 945 lb-ft. of torque on E85 ethanol blend fuel. Honed on the drag strip, the Demon 170 can run a 1/4-mile in 8.91 seconds at 151.17 mph and does 0-to-60 in a rocket-like 1.66 seconds.
Awesome Dodge Challenger
If you’re going to drive a high horsepower muscle car like a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, you usually want to have some nice fat tires to maximize grip. So the very idea of a Hellcat riding on horse-and-buggy wheels seems ludicrous. But this is the internet – and where there’s a will, there’s a way, as WhistlinDiesel demonstrates.
Dodge celebrates 50 years of muscle car goodness with this limited-edition Challenger package, which offers goodies like a body-colored Shaker hood scoop, 50th anniversary badging, Nappa leather and Alcantara seats, copper weave carbon fiber trim, and more. Check out our coverage on 95octane for all the details.
We spent a week living with this bonkers fast muscle car, done up in an eye-popping Yellow Jacket and black paint scheme. Despite rocking a 707 hp supercharged HEMI V8, its comfy interior and excellent adaptive suspension make it a shockingly good daily driver.
Because the 707hp Challenger Hellcat wasn’t enough, Dodge will offer their muscle car with an 840 hp supercharged V8, launching the beast from 0-to-60 in 2.3 seconds, running the 1/4-mile in 9.65 seconds, then driving home after popping wheelies at the drag strip.
An all-wheel drive version of Dodge’s hulking sports coupe. While its 305 hp V6 isn’t exactly a Hellcat engine, it should offer plenty of thrills, and an opportunity to enjoy one of America’s great muscle cars in the snow without just being stuck doing donuts.
