Dodge Challenger Demon vs Toyota Prius With Hellcat Engine Drag Race – Video
Built by American Racing Headers (ARH), the PriuSRT8 keeps the Prius’s basic shell intact but replaces everything else with hardware that can support a 707-hp-plus V-8 engine. In went a custom ladder frame, a four-link rear suspension, a nine-inch rear axle, a carbon-fiber driveshaft, a six-speed Tremec manual transmission, and a full roll cage.
Standard Demons come with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that cranks out 808 hp, but owners can increase that to 840 hp with the Demon Crate package. So equipped, Dodge claims that the Demon will demolish the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. Weight-saving measures have been taken wherever possible, and even passenger seats are optional. The Demon is a rare piece: the U.S. will only get 3000 units.
