Car of the Day 12/6/18

Today’s car of the day is this 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon that was at the 2018 Daytona Turkey Rod Run. It’s from the third generation of the Dodge Challenger, which has been in production since 2008. The Demon was unveiled at the 2017 New York Auto Show, and even made it’s film debut in The Fate of the Furious. Tim Kuniskus is the man behind the project, and he presented the car while the song “Fuel” by Metallica was being played. The engine is a 6.2 liter supercharged Hemi V8 that produces 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. This car weighs 4,279 pounds since the chassis is unitary steel. This car does 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds. I’m not sure what the true top speed is because one source says that it’s 207 mph, and another says it’s 168 mph. A total of 3,300 were built. 3,000 were sold in America, and the remaining 300 were sold in Canada.
