2018 Demon runs a 9.86

by Patrick Rall on

The silver 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in the video below runs a 9.86 quarter mile, making this the quickest privately-owned example of the 840-horsepower Mopar muscle car.

Demon at Dinwiddle

According to the person posting on the behalf of The Accelerator YouTube channel, this 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is shown racing at Dinwiddle Dragstrip in Virginia this past weekend. This car is owned by Nancy and Al Gennaralli, active racers in the Modern Street Hemi Shootout Series and while we don’t know all of the details of the run, we do know a few things about this Demon.

This is the car that we featured a few weeks back being tuned by A2Speed with Sykes software, so this car is making a bit more power than a stock Demon. Also, this Demon has the lightweight front wheels and tires, but the owners have swapped to different drag radials out back rather than the stock Nitto tires.

The Record Run

On the second run of this video, the silver Dodge Demon runs a 9.86 at 138.4 miles per hour and that is the quickest time turned in by a private owner of the newest Mopar muscle car. On a previous run, this car went 9.922 at 137 and one other car has run 9.90s, but this is the quickest privately-owned 2018 Challenger Demon in the world right now.

The silver Demon makes two other runs during the video, but we don’t get to see their times on either of those runs. One would be the 9.922 run mentioned above, but the video doesn’t offer any detail on the other run.

However, the only thing that matters right now is that the Gennaralli Demon holds the world record (not counting the numbers achieved by FCA in testing) with a 9.86 at 138 miles per hour.
