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 Muscle Cars
The 7th-gen Ford Mustang has sleek new front and rear designs and is powered by a 4th-gen Coyote 5.0L V8 or a new 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder. A redesigned interior features dual digital displays, while an Electronic Drift Brake handle makes drifting easy. And you can even rev its engine from the key fob.
Dodge previews its electric future, and they’re not backing down from making muscle cars. The 2-door Charger Daytona SRT has an 800-volt Banshee propulsion system, all-wheel drive, a multi-speed transmission, and a growly, emissions-free exhaust note made by pushing air through chamber and amplifying it.
Hennessey Performance amped up the Mustang GT’s V8 with a 3.0L supercharger and Borla exhaust, giving this monster 808 hp. It also has a CarbonAero splitter, sills, and spoiler, Brembo brakes, and 20″ alloy rims, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires. It’ll do 0-to-60 in 3.3 sec, 1/4-mile in 10.7 sec, and has a 200+ mph top speed.
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.
