We Knew It was Fast on the 1/4 Mile, but Dang
So, the Dodge Demon is electronically limited to 168 mph. Take that limiter away and the big 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine can make the car go a heck of a lot faster. How fast? Well, some guys took one of the cars minus its speed limiter to the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds, which is a lovely little place in Florida to find out.
The description of the video below says previous attempts without all of the goodies included in the Demon Box that comes with the car for the low price of one extra dollar yielded the result of 203 mph. That’s insanely fast.
The video attempt below takes things even further, though. It lets the Demon stretch its legs a little more to 211 mph. The car was equipped with the Demon Box equipment, and we assume running high octane gasoline to get the result.
The car seems to have no problem whatsoever reaching 200 mph. It then keeps ticking up the speedometer to 211 mph where it holds for a couple of seconds before the driver seems to run out of runway. The car appeared to have no more to give, though, even if there was more runway available.
