No Production Car Has Ever Been Built Like the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

When it comes to high performance pony cars, many consumers think of Dodge, Chevrolet, and Ford. The top contenders for the muscle car market are the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Corvette, and Ford Mustang. Thanks to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the Dodge name will be holding the gold medal of muscle cars for years to come. Even with their latest incarnations, neither the Mustang nor the Corvette can match the Demon’s racing times, and no other automaker has done what Dodge did to make the SRT Demon a reality.

Performance

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the only vehicle made to be a drag strip racer from the moment it hits the lot. Many cars can be tuned up with aftermarket components and engineering, such as the infamous Chevy Corvette Exorcist, one aftermarket creation designed to take on the Dodge Challenger Demon. The Dodge SRT Demon is made to be the end all muscle car with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine that can generate up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque.

Those numbers aren’t even the standard. The only way consumers can achieve that kind of output is by making use of the parts and accessories found in the Dodge Demon Crate. Does that still count as factory produced? Maybe there’s a little controversy there, but when it comes to racing times, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon speaks for itself, able to accelerate from 0-60 mph and finish a quarter mile faster than the big names in the muscle car market, including the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder.

Miami Lakes Automall SRT Bondurant Racing School Demon

Remember back when we discussed the Bondurant Racing School? It’s the driving school that partnered up with Dodge/SRT to deliver the education and skills necessary to not only handle the power of Dodge muscle cars and SRT vehicles, but also gives them a chance to do a little drag racing. Well now that the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is making the rounds and orders are being delivered, Bondurant has opened a new program designed specifically for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Strap into your racing harness, because you’re going to need it when this beast goes from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.

How to Get into the SRT/Bondurant Racing School

Is your adrenaline pumping already? Settle down, cowboy. There’s a few requirements before one can get behind the wheel of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. All automotive enthusiasts that wish to participate and attend classes at the Bondurant Racing School need to be of 18 years old or more to be eligible. Second, only drivers can attend the school, it’s not a place to socialize and take pictures.

There’s a third pseudo-requirement if wanting to take classes for free. If having purchased or leased a US-market SRT vehicle with a VIN from 2015 – 2018 (or the present) after April 1, 2015 will immediately have the fee for the classes waived. Meaning the cost of the classes are included in the vehicle, but owners or lessees of an SRT vehicle produced after 2015 only have a year to redeem the free day at school. Otherwise, they, and those who have not purchased or leased an SRT vehicle, will need to pay the standard price of admission – $699.

Miami Lakes Automall Dodge Unique Features

What Makes Dodge Vehicles Unique?

Miami Lakes Automall Dodge Unique Features

The Dodge automotive brand is pretty unique when you think about it. Is there any brand out there as iconic as Dodge? Every vehicle is infused with their heritage and style. Components, colors, engines, even entire vehicle series make Dodge stand apart as an automotive brand, and although some have been shared in recent years, we can still trace their origin back to the original automaker – Dodge. Let’s take a look at some of the features that set Dodge vehicles and muscle cars apart from the rest of the crowd.

Power

Originally belonging only to the Dodge name, the supercharged engines that now power the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon were at one point, one-of-a-kind, and in some aspects, they still are. Starting with the Dodge Challenger SRT 392, a 392 cubic-inch HEMI engine was put under the hood, able to deliver 485 horsepower. This was the engine that really charged up the Dodge Challenger name, and it could only be found on the Challenger for some time. It was unique to the Dodge name until the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT came out, outfitted with the same engine.

Next came the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Making its debut back in 2015, this muscle car came with a supercharged 6.2L V8 SRT Hellcat HEMI engine, capable of generating 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, and accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. For awhile, this engine could only be found on the SRT Hellcat, and in essence still is. Consumers won’t find a supercharged 6.2L V8 SRT Hellcat HEMI engine on any other vehicle, but they will find the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 under the hood of the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

A similar engine to that found in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon engine. It has the same name as the engine in the Hellcat with one key difference – “Hellcat” is replaced by “Demon”. In addition, the Challenger SRT Demon can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds, and that’s thanks to its SRT Power Chiller and a recorded installation of 97 new parts integrated into the SRT Demon engine. This kind of power most likely won’t make it anywhere else.

Miami Lakes Automall Brembo Hybrid Brakes

New Brembo Hybrid Brake Pads Embody SRT Performance

Miami Lakes Automall Brembo Hybrid Brakes

A little while back, we discussed the high performance braking systems installed into high performance vehicles. Specifically, we discussed the braking systems designed by Brembo and how they help keep vehicles like the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in check. Now that we’re in 2018, concepts and news about 2019 vehicles are already underway, and there’s already talk about the new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette and the type of braking systems being developed to not only increase its performance but also the control the driver has, on and off the track.

The Importance of a High Performance Braking System

Having good brakes on an automotive vehicle is obvious. Not only does a driver need to be able to bring a vehicle to a stop, but some situations require them to do so quickly, such as when a child runs out into the streets or an abrupt halt in traffic. Yes, some of that comes down to being able to maneuver the vehicle around obstacles, but it’s much easier to move around, say, a pothole, when travelling 15 mph versus 60 mph.
