Guinness Book of World Records Certifies Dodge Demon’s First-Ever Wheelie

At this point, basically the entire automotive world is reeling from Dodge’s reveal on Tuesday, the 11th. What is it reeling from? A new muscle car built for the gods. The automotive gods, that is. The new Dodge Demon is the only production car capable of popping a wheelie, confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records’ certification. This unholy chariot, fully entitled the “2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon,” rockets from 0-mph to 60-mph in just 2.3 seconds, making it not only the only production car to be able to pop a wheelie, but also the fastest production car… in the world. The world.

Its engine also holds the title of the most powerful V8 to ever be concocted, and then actually produced, by a factory. The numbers on that engine? It’s a 6.2-liter V8 that makes between 808 to 840-horsepower and 717 to 808-lbft of torque, depending on your given package. Our bet? Everyone will be buying the fastest package available.

We know what you’re thinking. Surely the aptly named “Demon” isn’t street legal. Surely the government must ban it from the streets. Surely it’s just for show.

Think again. The new Dodge Demon meets federal emissions standards, has a real factory warranty and is, you guessed it, 100% street legal. That means that you could roll into an AutoNation Dodge dealership, roll out with the fastest product car in the world, and not have to worry about a cop pulling you over immediately. Well, you might still get pulled over. To be congratulated. Even more incredible? The Demon is faster than multi-million dollar exotics, but the company wants to keep the price low. Only a million low, you say? Try around $100,000 low. That’s low. Really low.

Oh yes, and the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon also holds the titles for: highest horsepower of any production car, high G-force production of any car, and world’s fastest quarter mile production car. If you aren’t sold yet, you need to check your temperature.

If you are sold, make sure you drop by your local AutoNation Dodge dealer to learn more and make your reservation. A little birdy told us only 3,000 of these monsters will be available in the United States, and we suspect they’ll be reserved pretty fast. Almost as fast as the Demon itself. And that’s saying something.
