The Ultimate Muscle Car Takes On Porsche, McLaren, Ferrari and Lamborghini At The Drag Strip

Dodge Demon Highlight Reel

When FCA unveiled the Dodge Demon for the 2017 model year, it was clear that no other production vehicle would be able to touch it on the drag strip. The 840 horsepower supercharged V8 engine under the hood combined with the most drag racing tech ever fitted to a factory ride made sure of this. Despite the specs, some people seem to have forgotten just how dominant this car is. The Demonology YouTube channel has put together a highlight reel of the Dodge Demon beating up on some of the fastest supercars in the world 1,320 feet at a time.

The first supercar to fall to the Challenger Demon during this highlight reel is an all-wheel-drive Porsche 911 Turbo. It is hard to tell from the video if the car is a 540-hp 911 Turbo or ludicrously quick 580-hp 911 Turbo S model, but against the 840 horsepower Demon, the 911’s butt-mounted turbocharged flat-six looks like it might as well be a Camry engine.

The Ferrari 458 Italia is widely regarded as one of the best driving cars to ever come out of Maranello, but it is no match for American might on the drag strip. 4.5L V8 engine found in the middle of the Ferrari produces 562 horsepower and 398 lb-ft, and despite weighing a scant 3,450 pounds, the power differential here is too vast to overcome. The white prancing horse launches off the line well, but is quickly dispatched by the Demon.

Even the mighty Ferrari 488 GTB finds itself outmatched against the American drag racer, despite packing nearly 100 more horsepower than the 458. Thanks to a pair of twin turbochargers, the 488’s 3.9L V8 engine produces a whopping 661 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. In the interest of fairness, the 488’s driver does appear to be asleep at the wheel during the start of the race, but regardless the Demon would have almost certainly come out on top.

Things don’t seem to improve when the Italian’s from Sant’Agata come to face the Demon either. The 610 horsepower V-10 powered Lamborghini Huracan benefits from its all-wheel drive system and trick 7-speed dual clutch transmission when it comes to launching the car, resulting in a factory rated 1/4 mile time of 10.4 seconds at 135 mph. Despite the first demonic challenger running out of fuel during the race, it is clear throughout the highlight reel that the Dodge Demon simply can’t be touched by the raging bull.

The Dodge Demon is so dominant at the drag strip that it even puts the all-mighty McLaren 720S on notice. This 710 horsepower (or 800hp, depending on who you ask) supercar is known for warping people’s idea of what speed is, running a 10.09 second 1/4 mile at 142 mph in the video. That is a ridiculous time for a factory-built car, but it still fell behind the Demon that ran the 1320 foot race in 9.85 seconds.

To see the Dodge Demon spank some of the worlds fastest and most sought after supercar, be sure to watch the video above.
