Dodge Challenger Smashes Another Record Without Demon’s Help

By  | 

When Dodge launched the Challenger Demon, we really thought that this is the limit for the Challenger nameplate and all that is left now is for Dodge to launch a new-generation model. Well, we were wrong.

About a month ago, Dodge announced on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 and this vehicle is claimed to be the world’s fastest quarter-mile car under the pure engine category.

Pure engine means that the mill on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 does not feature any turbochargers, superchargers or electric motors. The engine is purely a natural-aspirated 6.4L V8 unit that can develop 485hp and 475ft-lbs of torque.

Dodge revealed that the car has got the fastest drag performance in the pure-engine scene but they have yet to offer on a specific quarter-mile timing to justify the record-breaking claim.
