Hennessey Made: The Challenger SRT Demon with 1,013 HP

We know by now that if Hennessey Performance Engineering is involved, the project is likely to be insane. The Dodge Demon is a street-legal, 840-horsepower coupe, and a tuning shop has managed to take this monster to a new level. Hennessey Performance now has a Demon making 1,013 horsepower… at the wheels.

Appropriately named the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon HPE1200, the car trades in the 2.7-liter supercharger for a 4.5-liter engine. Also included in Hennesseys upgrades are new headers and fuel injectors. At the end of the day, the car you see here pumps out 1,013 rear-wheel power and 954 pound-feet of torque. Check out the video to watch this machine go for a test drive. Enjoy.

Pair of Dodge Demons Sold at Auction

Don’t you just love when you see the Demon in a headline? We sure do. So what do we know about the Dodge Demon. It’s an 840-horsepower drag-strip monster with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 capable of going 0-60 in just 2.3 seconds. The power alone puts the Demon at the top of our muscle car list. The suggested retail price of a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is $86,090. Sure, you might think that’s a ton of cash for a Dodge, but considering the specs, and the fact that there were just 3,300 examples made, it’s a pretty sweet deal. But, with the inevitable markups from dealers and sellers, you probably won’t find a Demon for less than $100,000.

Earlier this month, auction house Mecum sold 2 of the 3,300 models in Louisville, Kentucky. But surprisingly, they didn’t sell for an outrageous amount. A factory fresh black Demon went for $123,750, and a red Demon had a final bid of $132,000. Sure, thats $40,000 and $50,000 over the original price, but considering some dealers marked up the car by $175,000, we were surprised by these figures. Check out the cars right here, and let us know your thoughts.

2014 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Stops By Jay Leno’s Garage

Actor Jim Caviezel paid a visit to Jay Leno on the most recent episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. He brought with him his 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake. The proud owner has turned the car into a tribute to honor the members of SEAL Team Six aboard Extortion 17. Caviezel was inspired to do this by a novel detailing the experience the SEALs had serving their country. The spear belonging to Chris Kyle sits beneath the hold along with the names of 19 fallen SEAL team members who lost their lives in Extortion 17.

The actor has been heavily involved with the military in the past. After Caviezel helped raise money for soldiers returning home, he wanted to do something more, which is why he teamed up with car designer Chip Foose. Together, they created the Shelby Mustang you see here. In addition to serving as a beacon of remembrance, the car also packs some serious power. The GT500 features a 5.8-liter supercharged V-8 producing 850 horsepower. Other noteworthy specs include “sword-tipped” wheels designed by Foose, wide-body rear fenders, and wheel caps. There is also a special emblem on the rear which incorporates the Extortion 17 trident, a knight’s helmet, and the American flag. You can’t miss this one, watch the episode, right here.

Introducing The 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet

It’s been 50 years since the original Mustang Cobra Jet was released, all thanks to Ford dealer and racer Bob Tasca. And lucky for us, the good ‘ole Blue Oval has unveiled a 50th anniversary special based on the sixth-gen Mustang. The car packs a 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 and should put up a quarter-mile time of just 8.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 150 mph. Some other noteworthy goodies include a four-link rear suspension, a 9-inch rear axle, a roll cage, Racetech FIA seats, and Weld Racing wheels with 50th anniversary swag. Oh, did we forget to mention that it will be the quickest drag racing Mustang ever?

Pricing starts at a whopping $130,000, which isn’t too surprising since only 68 examples will be built (a nod to the original built in 1968). Customers will choose either Race Red or Oxford White like the original. Check it out, right here.
