Be Afraid. Be very afraid.
The Riverside Police Department recently received delivery of a 730-hp Saleen Mustang which is one of the fastest police cars in the world. But just when you thought squad cars couldn’t get any more savage, render artist Aksyonov Nikita has created what we think is the ultimate in police brutality – a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon cop car. It’s a shame it isn’t real, because we think most people would instantly pull over if they saw a pursuing Demon with flashing lights and sirens in their rear view mirror scaring them into submission.
Nikita has done a commendable job making this Demon police cruiser look authentic, digitally adding a traditional black and white police livery, decals, emergency lights and a siren. And just when you thought the Demon couldn’t possibly look any more aggressive, Nikita added a front bull bar to give it a more commanding presence. Dodge set out to make the Demon a multi-purpose muscle car that can dominate the drag strip and the road, so why not add chasing criminals to its list of attributes? Should you try to outrun the Dodge Demon patrol car, you have little chance of getting away – it is the fastest and most powerful production car in the world, after all.
As you probably know by now, the Demon packs a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that delivers 840 horsepower compared to the 707-hp Challenger SRT Hellcat before it. That’s enough to allow the Demon to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 2.3 seconds and blitz the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. We wouldn’t fancy our chances against those figures, somehow.
