The 840-Horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was recently unveiled ahead of the New York International Auto Show and its jaw-dropping 840-horsepower and 770 pounds-feet of torque 6.2-liter super charged V8 engine was the highlight of the day. This is the most powerful V8 engine ever put into a regular production vehicle. The last record was guarded by Dodge Challenger Hellcat that had 707-horsepower.

This is a huge jump in horsepower, so much that the Demon has already claimed the world's fastest run every by a factory production car in the quarter-mile. The final time was certified by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) at 9.65 seconds and 140 miles per hour. According to Dodge, this beast has the fastest zero to 60 time (2.3 seconds) for any production car. The crazy amount of acceleration G-force you experience in this car will give you goosebumps. If you don't mind your car lifting its front wheels off the ground, go ahead and mash that gas pedal down.
