A Tale Of Two Challengers: Dodge Demon Vs. Hellcat Drag Race Is Sheer Fun

For a four-year old car, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is still as impressive as they come.

It’s got 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet (881Nm) of torque available from a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8, which on the road translates to a 0-60 mph (0-96km/h) in just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 204mph (328km/h).

This supercar-matching numbers, combined with a starting price of just over $60,000, makes the Challenger SRT Hellcat a highly desirable ride and the bargain of the decade when it comes to performance.

However, there’s a new kid in the Challenger family, the insane Demon. Starting at $84,995, it is priced quite a bit higher, but for the extra cash adrenaline junkies will get to enjoy its tuned V8 that now makes 840hp.

Fitted with the correct tires, the Demon takes as little as 2.3 seconds to hit 60mph (96km/h) from a standstill and does the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds!

Now, it’s more than obvious that the Demon is the more potent beast here, but just how big of a difference is there between the two? We know what it looks like on paper, but in the real world…

Well, let’s just say that we now have a video that shows them unleashed on the drag strip and answers that question once and for all.
