Dodge is kicking off summer by giving speed and power a swift kick … At the NHRA New England Nationals, Leah Pritchett joins Pennzoil to salute the Dodge brand by driving a supercharged 11,000-horsepower Mopar® HEMI® V8-powered Demon.
Pritchett’s Demon will be the quickest modified, non-production car on the planet. At New England, Pritchett, who was involved in initial testing for the Dodge Demon, will drive a dragster with a special “Demon” paint scheme, and her firesuit and the crew shirts will also sport Demon branding. The Top Fueler already holds the quickest run in NHRA history with a time of 3.658 seconds recorded early this year near Phoenix.
Speaking of records, the speed isn’t for the pros only. Available soon to the public, the limited-production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT® Demon is the first-ever production car to do a front-wheel lift, as certified by Guinness World Records, and it’s the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car with an elapsed time (ET) of 9.65 seconds at 140 miles per hour (mph), as certified by NHRA. It also registers the highest g-force (1.8 g) ever recorded at launch in a production car.
Sound like your kind of thrill ride? If you want to get behind the wheel of the most powerful muscle car ever, the 840-horsepower SRT Demon will start arriving at dealerships this fall with a starting MSRP* of $84,995. And for those who want to unleash its full power at the drag strip, a personalized, exclusive Demon crate, with performance parts, will be available for $1.
Pritchett and the Demon will hit the track at the June 2-4 NHRA New England Nationals and the following week at Englishtown, New Jersey, for the Summernationals.
