Hennessey Performance: 1,000-HP Dodge Demon
We wish we could say we’re surprised. Truth be told, only Hennessey can get away with being this excessive. In its stock form, the Demon produces 840 horsepower thanks to its 6.2-liter Hemi V8. The car does 0-62 in a mere 2.3 seconds and the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds. To say it’s an absolute monster is an understatement. But that won’t stop Hennessey Performance. Not even close. The tuning shop has taken the Demon to the next level by adding a few more horses, increasing the total HP to 1,000.
Check out the video below to see the Dyno test of the first HPE1000 Demon. The car produces 880 hp and 806 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Considering an approximate 20% drivetrain loss, the horsepower is rated at 1,056 with 967 lb-ft of torque. Absolutely outrageous. Enjoy.
