It has begun. Dodge has just announced that shipments of its highly coveted Challenger SRT Demon are now underway. All told, just 3,300 examples will be built (3,000 in the US, 300 in Canada) and all are certified by the National Hot Rod Association as the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car. How fast? Try an elapsed time of 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. Zero to 60 mph happens in a mere 2.3 seconds. The Demon is also the first production car to achieve a front-wheel lift. It’s 840-hp of awesomeness.
Ok. I want one. But at least I don't want some pretentious Euro-import. I'll just pretend I've had one for a year and am just returning to my happiness set point. Apparently you go through tires really quickly with these things.
