Watch This Amazing Review of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: Video
It is as dramatic as the Demon itselfby Michael Fira, on
The guys at SavageGeese finally got around to reviewing a machine that’s hell-bent on creating havoc, the Dodge Challenger Demon. It’s all for a good cause since the car itself was supplied by Tri Industries.
Packed with a fun yet metaphorical intro, this Dodge Challenger Demon review from SavageGees Production was made with help from Tri Industries who offered the car for the video to raise money for their cause, employing veterans and other people of disabilities.
You can help by donating to the cause and, if you do, there’s something in it for you because Tri Industries makes it possible for you to win the Demon you’ll see in the video if you go and donate on www.winadodgedemon.com.

Why it’s so cool
The Dodge Challenger Demon is one of those cars that reached cult status almost instantaneously due to its immeasurable amounts of power and the fact that it’s, at the end of the day, a beast for the open road. One that’s the first production car to be able to lift its front wheels off the line thanks to the massive acceleration power.
The Demon is based off the 707-horsepower Hellcat which, adequately, sold like hot cakes. That’s why Dodge dispatched the SRT crew to create an even more ludicrous version of the Challenger.
While the Hellcat is, judging by its name, an inhabitant of the Underworld, the 840-horsepower dragster-for-the-road bears the name of the Lord of Darkness himself.
You’d think that’s a bit too exuberant, even standing on the car with the most powerful V-8 engine ever made, but you’d be gravely mistaken.
You see, the Demon is able to not only bend space and time thanks to its spell-biding acceleration, but it can change you as well. You’ll see what I mean if you watch the video, but let’s just say you won’t be the same man you used to be after you get out of a Demon.
Granted, this is not the first time that Dodge slapped the ’Demon’ moniker on one of their cars. In fact, the fourth generation Dodge Dart was offered in the Demon trim for a couple of years in the early ’70s. But that’s a far cry from today’s Challenger on steroids which really deserves this name.
The car comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 which develops 840-horsepower with racing-spec 100 octane gas for which the engine was specifically calibrated (without it, you’ll have to make do with just 808-horsepower). This in itself is a first among road cars.
The engine puts out 770 pound-feet of torque on racing fuel and 717 pound-feet on normal fuel respectively.
It weighs 4,255 pounds, down by 215 pounds in comparison to the Hellcat.
It comes with a clever liquid-to-air intercooler temperature management system which uses air from the A/C to further cool down the intercooler. Then there’s also the use of a transbrake at the back for proper launches on the dragstrip. That’s how the Demon received the NHRA’s certification for the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car with a time of 9.65 seconds and a trap speed of 140 mph. The Demon reaches 62 mph in under three seconds and, when rocketing off the line, you’ll be subjected to 1.8 Gs of acceleration. This makes the Demon one of the fastest production cars although it’s nowhere near as light as a Pagani or a Ferrari or a Koenigsegg.
But, here’s the catch. Only 3,300 Dodge Challenger Demons were made and the last one was rolled off the assembly line in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, on May 31st 2018. That particular example was then sold off at a Barrett Jackson auction. Due to high customer demand and short lifespan, the Challenger Demon will only gain market value and become more and more expensive as the years roll by.
What this means is that Tri Industries offers a rare opportunity to own a real Challenger Demon without having to trade your house in exchange.
All of the donations made through their website go towards helping their cause, so it’s a win-win situation. Also, it’s noteworthy that the Demon comes with a ’Demon’ crate that includes a direct-connection powertrain control module (PCM), a low-restriction air filter, high-octane racing fuel switch bank, and many other bits to personalize the car.
