What kind of engine power does the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon have?
840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque power the Challenger SRT Demon through its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine. The Demon’s engine is built on the architecture of its sibling vehicle, the Challenger Hellcat, but with 25 major component upgrades. Compared to the Hellcat’s V8, the Demon’s engine houses a larger supercharger (2.7 liters versus 2.4 liters), an additional dual-stage fuel pump, a higher rpm limit (6,500 versus 6,200), and a larger air induction box with three sources of intake. While the SRT Demon can run on premium unleaded fuel, it is also the first street-legal factory-production car built to run on 100+ unleaded high-octane fuel. A TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission works to harness the Demon’s V8 power, and is equipped with TransBrake, a system which allows the driver to hold the car in place before a standing start and increase engine speed up to 2,350 rpm before taking off.

The Demon has been noted as the highest horsepower V-8 production car engine ever produced, as well as the world’s fastest production car.

The 2018 SRT Demon was recognized by the Guinness World Records committee for having the first-ever front-wheel lift in a production car, having achieved a lift of 2.92 feet.
