When it comes to muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is like freakin’ Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime. It’s an absolute beast. To put things plainly, this isn’t your grandpa’s muscle car.
While a standard Demon is equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine that dishes out 808 horsepower, folks with a need for speed can upgrade to the Demon Crate package, which increases the horsepower to a whopping 840.
According to Dodge, the Demon can hit a quarter mile in less than 10 seconds at 140 MPH. Yep, you read that right. We told you this thing was no joke. And, with a price tag of nearly $85,000, Dodge certainly isn’t afraid to let you know it.
Now, if know anything about football, then you’re probably familiar with University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. And, if you know anything about Jim Harbaugh, then you know that he’s the perfect person to test drive the Dodge Demon.
For an episode of the YouTube show Suburban Drives Michigan back in 2018, host Jeffrey Phelps took Harbaugh for a spin in the Demon, where the pair did everything from talking about Harbaugh’s first car (it was nicknamed “The Vomit”) to doing donuts on the 50-yard line of the Big House to singing the Michigan Fight Song in country, heavy metal, and polka styles.
As you can tell, Jim Harbaugh is quite the character, with a high-energy feel both on and off the field and a penchant for dishing out memorable quote after memorable quote. Here’s one of them: “Some people say less is more. I fundamentally argue with that concept. More is always more.”
Considering the monstrous over-the-top specs of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, we’re certainly prone to agree with that assertion.
