Dodge Demon Races Old School Custom Muscle Cars

A drag race between a Dodge Challenger Demon and a bunch of old school muscle cars may be an academic exercise to some, but it’s still interesting to see how the new measures up to the vintage. Even if it is to just prove someone’s hard earned money was invested into the right vehicle…..or not…

Here the benchmark is the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with its 6.2-L supercharged Hemi V8, producing 840 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque. That’s 0 to 60 in 2.3 seconds and a quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds with 100 octane fuel, straight from the factory. Contenders here come in the form of a ’69 Chevrolet Camaro, a 1972 Dodge Challenger Rallye and a Ford Mustang.

As with any drag race, there are so many variables dictating the race from driver experience to engine setup, so the winners and losers here are not really the point. In many ways it is to see how the most powerful modern muscle car, optimised for the dragstrip goes up against some old school competition, just for the sheer hell of it…..
