  • Hennessey Demon runs the quarter mile in 9.38 seconds

    Hennessey Performance Engineering once looked to exorcise the Demon with the Exorcist based on the Camaro ZL1, but now the Texan tuner is fully embracing the dark side. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been receiving attention from Hennessey's wrenches, and the company is ready to offer its HPE1000 package to Demon owners. To prove how fast the car can run down the dragstrip, Hennessey turned on the cameras and showed it sailing through a quarter-mile run. At the rear wheels, the HPE1000 Demon produces 880 horsepower. That equates to about 1,035 horsepower at the crank, and it's enough...
