They range from the most powerful muscle car ever to sleek pocket rockets.

Car enthusiasts, you may want to take a nice, long look at the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

Even if that just means staring in awe.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles unveiled the Demon in a highly anticipated event Tuesday night on the eve of the New York International Auto Show, touting it as “a car unlike anything we’ve ever done.”

But just how eye-popping is the Demon? Here are some key specs to look at. Long story short: It’s a force to be reckoned with. You’re basically strapping yourself to a rocket.

840 horsepower

That equates to 626,388 watts of power, in case you’re wondering.

770 pound-feet of torque

Long story short, it’s the fastest and most powerful production car out there. Dodge says the Demon features the highest horsepower V-8 production-car engine ever produced. Speaking of which…

6.2-liter Hemi Demon V-8

That’s the supercharged engine packed under the hood. And more than 50% of the components inside differ from that of the 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 Hemi that powers the Hellcat engine that debuted in 2014.

1.8 G

The highest G-force for a production car, according to Dodge. Yes, this is still a street-legal car.

2.92 feet

The front-wheel lift, the first-ever in a production car, as certified by the Guinness World Records.

1 second

That’s how fast this car goes from zero to 30 miles per hour

2.3 seconds

That’s how fast this car goes from 0-60. That’s quicker than it takes for a home run to leave a ballpark in a baseball game.

9.6 seconds

And finally, that’s how fast this car can go in a quarter-mile, which means domination on the drag strip.

6,500 RPM

The revolutions-per-minute limit on the Demon engine.

Less than $100,000

Though we don’t know how much the 2018 Dodge Demon will cost, Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car brands for Fiat Chrysler,. expects it to be well under $100,000.
