The 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon is one cool ride. This barely street legal Dodge can use its air conditioner and a new part called an intercooler for more horse power. Yes, this Demon is hot, burning up the road with pure raw power. It’s the worlds fastest production car, but it also likes to stay cool with the aid of its new technology, the power chiller AC unit.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon delivers 840 horsepower, 770 pound-feet of torque, and 1.8 G-force. That’s more G-force than any other street legal car. The Dodge Demon features a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Demon V8. It is hard to imagine this Dodge Challenger Demon is a stock and street legal car, according to Detroit Free Press.
The power chiller air conditioning unit and its intercooler give the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon that extra horsepower. It is new technology that puts the driver in control of more power whenever it’s needed or wanted. Just put the Demon in “Drag Mode” and feel the extra horsepower.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon’s technology is all about helping this Demon keep its cool in high-performance situations. It’s a well-known fact that cooling the engine delivers better performance, and that includes more horsepower as well as better gas mileage.
However, this new Dodge Challenger Demon technology is the coolest. In the past, there were hood scoops. Later, there were vent tubes that brought in outside air. It’s 2018, though, and now, when this devil gets hot, it wants to use the air conditioning system.
See how the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon uses the air conditioning system to increase horsepower in the video below.
The 2018 Dodge Demon’s driver always has the option to divert the air conditioner to cool the engine, and the results are simply amazing, like nitrous. Whenever the driver chooses, the coolant is sent to the intercooler instead of the air conditioning system for the cabin.
Making a deal with this Dodge Challenger Demon for more power will divert the car’s interior air. Yes, during the summer, this might get hot on the passengers, but Demonic power like this must be paid for in sweat in addition to the purchase price.
How does the Dodge Demon power chiller work? Motor Authority explains as follows.
“The power chiller is able to reduce the air’s temperature by 50 degrees. In turn, the cooler air creates the additional power with cooler air. While the power chiller may cost the Dodge Challenger Demon engine power run to actually run it, the cooler, denser air outweighs the loss and creates more power.”
The 2018 Dodge Demon may be the future of high performance. The Challenger Demon is the “first production application” of any type of “liquid-to-air charge” cooler system for a car engine, explains Autoblog. The coolant is liquid when hot, but it turns to a gas when cooled.
This barely street legal Dodge Challenger Demon is a whole lot of car for the money. The 2018 Dodge Demon comes stock with this tremendous horsepower capacity, for about $85,000 to $90,000 on the sticker price.
