The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a high performance trim for the 3rd generation Dodge Challenger that was first shown by Dodge at the New York Auto Show in April 2017. It went on sale in late 2017 and ended production on May 31, 2018 with a total of 3,300 units produced.
Equipped with a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 producing 840 horsepower and 771 lb⋅ft of torque, the Demon owns the title of world's most powerful production V8. Making it the first of Dodge's production drag cars.
Alongside performance alterations, the Demon is 97.5 kg lighter than the next most powerful trim, the Challenger Hellcat, and that is down to the Demon being aggressively lighted to the extent of only having a front driver seat stock.
The front passenger seat and rear seats can be fitted from the factory at the price of $1 each, although the four-piston calipers, smaller disc brakes, and smaller hollow anti-roll bars can not be replaced with the larger components of the Challenger.
Even though the Demon is sold as a production drag car, the National Hot Rod Association in the United States of American has banned it from competition due to it not being equipped with an NHRA certified roll cage required for 'under 10 second' cars, and additional drag components require an optional $1 add-on; the Demon Crate.
The $1 optional Demon Crate includes; skinnier front tyres, a high-octane fuel button, a performance PCM that unlocks all 840 horsepower, a cone air filter, a bespoke instrument panel, a passenger mirror block off plate, and tools required to equip the crate's components.

The Challenger SRT Demon appears in Need for Speed: No Limits as part of a "Unleashed" special event that took place from August 11, 2017 to August 18, 2017. The starting performance rating is 563.
