Me Me Me!!
Who would of thought a Demon with 840hp for the track with a bumper to bumper warranty?
My Buick Grand National puts out gobs of power, and would hurt 99.99% of feelings of cars on here, but damn that sumbitch breaks a lot.
Last time turned the boost up 3 more pounds and the crank said "Umm, I am done, I think we need to go our separate ways."
The Demon is a good car, but its engine is very similar to the Hellcat engine (with notable differences). It, however, is not capable of 1,000hp without some more modifications. It may only seem like a little bit extra power to get to 1,000 from there, but there's a pretty big distinction between 800 and 1,000hp in terms of the physics involved on the rotating assembly. A commuter car may experience a bit of valve knock or "ping" if it gets bad gas. A 1,000hp engine experiencing the same issue might throw a rod out the side of the block. I'd love to see an engineering team come up with a 1,000hp engine that could be warranteed for 60,000 miles.
And I would immediately invest all my money into their company because as they say, "There is no such thing as a race car that doesn't break down." I did pretty well with my green Mustang (1,024whp peak, ran mostly at 820hp or so, 41,000mi), but it took constant maintenance and plugs every 10k miles
Never did break down, but that's only due to preventive maintenance. But, to do a car like this and have it "in production," it has to be pretty much maintenance free for 60k miles with not much more than oil changes. That's the difference with the Hellephant engine. It only shipped with a 90-day warranty on initial parts and workmanship. The instant you put it in a car and fire it up successfully... warranty is null.
