New York Auto Show Highlights
The New York Auto Show brought this year’s spring auto season to a close, and automakers saved their best reveals for last. Here are three of the best highlights from this year’s show.
DODGE CHALLENGER SRT DEMON
One of the most exciting highlights at this year’s New York Auto Show was Dodge’s newest muscle car, the Challenger SRT Demon; a car so fast it has already been banned from drag-racing competition by the National Hot Rod Association.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon comes with a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 that cranks out 808 horsepower. If that is not enough, owners can upgrade to 840 horsepower with the Demon Crate package. This street-legal drag racer can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds. It can do a quarter mile in just over 9.6 seconds at 140 MPH. This beast generates enough torque to lift the front wheels off the ground under hard acceleration.
If you want one of these supercars, you better hurry to your local dealer. The Demon will go on sale in the fall of 2017, but only 3,000 will ever be produced.
