  • Speedkore Dodge Challenger Demon with 1,400 hp

    SpeedKore shocked us with its 1,400-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon build at the 2018 SEMA show, but we now have a good look at just how brutal of a machine it is. Video from That Racing Channel on YouTube shows SpeedKore's extra demonic Challenger SRT Demon hit the dragstrip. Let's make this clear: it sounds angry. The 1,400 hp is the figure measured at the crank, but 1,203 hp still makes its way to the rear wheels. The Wisconsin-based shop had one goal when it set out to build the car: make the fastest Demon on the planet. We'd say Speedkore succeeded because the car ran an...

    Green giants: 2019 Dodge Challenger, Charger add Sublime paint

    The 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger are going green in a literal sense. The brand announced Wednesday that both cars now offer the Sublime paint color, which last appeared in 2015. The Challenger could be had in Sublime four years ago, but the color was last seen on a Charger in 2007...

    FCA boss: Next Challenger to use electric boost, skip 700-hp supercharged V-8

    You better get them while they last, folks, as the next Dodge Challenger looks like it's going to be a very different beast to the car on sale today. That's the word of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Mike Manley, who took over following the sudden death of his predecessor, Sergio Marchionne, last...

    Dodge Challenger outsells Camaro in 2018, but Mustang still king

    Executives at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Ford have reason to celebrate over their muscle cars, while Chevrolet is likely taking a hard look at its Camaro. The 2018 sales figures are in from all three American automakers, and the results put Ford on top in the muscle car wars. Despite a decrease...

  • Dodge Lego Speed Champions build set

  • 2018 Hennessey HPE1000 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
    Hennessey's 1,035-HP Dodge Challenger SRT Demon sounds like it came from hell

    The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is already one hell of a car, but Hennessey Performance Engineering has (of course) gotten a hold of it and made it something more. With the company's HPE1000 package, the Demon makes a whopping 880 horsepower at the rear wheels. That equates to around 1,035 hp at the...

  • 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody

    The Dodge Challenger has been with us since 2008, but like a fine wine it just gets better with age. The vehicle has entered the 2019 model year, and while the 840-horsepower SRT Demon is no longer at the party, the drag strip hero's influence can be felt in several models in the lineup, none more so than the new-for-2019 SRT Hellcat Redeye. Featuring red eyes in its Hellcat badges to signify that it's been possessed by the Demon, the SRT Hellcat Redeye comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 pumping out a hefty 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. The result is 0-60 mph acceleration...

  • HPE1000 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye
    Hennessey has 1,035-hp package for Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye

    It was only a matter of time before Hennessey Performance Engineering got its hands on the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye. On Friday we learned the tuning company has given the slightly more demonic Hellcat 1,035 horsepower, up from 797. HPE equips the car with the HPE1000 package to create the...

  • 2018 SpeedKore Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
    SpeedKore's 1,400-hp, carbon-fiber-bodied Dodge Demon drops into the 8s

    First 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye rolls off assembly line

    Demonic Dodges are ready to roll into dealerships. No, not those Demons that you're more likely to find rolling across an auction block.

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon owned by Michael Andretti
    Buy Michael Andretti's barely used Dodge Demon

    If someone gifted you a car, would you drive it? I assume you would. Especially if that car happens to be an 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Michael Andretti has access to all sorts of cars, so when he's given a Demon he doesn't need to drive it. That's why his car is heading to auction...

  • Hennessey Performance tuned Dodge Demon makes 1,013 rear-wheel horsepower
    Hennessey's Dodge Challenger SRT Demon makes 1,013 HP...at the wheels

    Just a few short years ago, there would have been no way we'd believe that a mainstream automaker would sell a street-legal, 840-horsepower coupe. But Dodge does just that and the car is appropriately called the Demon. As is often the case though, tuning shops love taking already insane things and...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon sold in September 2018 at Mecum auction

    The suggested retail price of a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is $86,090. That's a ton of cash for a Dodge, but it's actually a fantastic deal considering the Demon is an 840-horsepower drag-strip all star built in a limited run of just 3,300. Good luck finding one for under $100,000, of course, as dealers and sellers are marking them up like crazy. You'd think that would be a recipe for some wild bids at auction, but it turns that it isn't the case. Auction house Mecum sold two Demons each with delivery miles only at its sale in Louisville, Kentucky on September 7 and 8. A factory fresh...

    A pair of Dodge Demons will raise hell (and money) in Monterey

    More is better. It's a simple formula and Dodge knows how to tweak it for maximum effect. That's how the Hellcat was originally born, and how we've arrived in a world today that exists with a vehicle called the Challenger SRT Demon. A street-legal drag racing denizen of destructive speed offered...

    2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 revealed: long name, short quarter-mile times

    By the time you've digested and decoded the mouthful that is the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320's prolific name, rest assured the muscle car will be nearly halfway down a dragstrip. That's because the big naturally aspirated brute that debuted in Denver on Thursday is built for one-way...

  • 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody

    The 2018 Dodge Demon is dead. Long live the Demon. On Thursday, Dodge unveiled the revised 2019 Challenger lineup, and in it now resides what can only be described as the spawn of the Demon: the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. With 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque throbbing out of a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Hellcat Redeye inherits a long list of parts developed for the 2018 Demon. This makes sense, as many were left wondering why Dodge would spend so much time and resources engineering features for...
