One look at its muscular body tells you it's not a supercar. Yet the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is certainly super... something. Powered by a new "Demon" variant of the company's supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8, it has 840 hp at its disposal. This power gives it the ability to move from 0-60 in just 2.3 seconds, making it the world's fastest production car in this metric — faster than even the Bugatti Chiron. It's also been banned by NHRA before it's even released, as it's also the world's fastest production car in the quarter mile, with a time of 9.65 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph. Technical wizardry was necessary to achieve these feats, including the SRT Power Chiller that uses A/C refrigerant to cool air entering the supercharger, an Air-Grabber induction system with the largest hood scoop you'll find on the lot, and the ability to run on 100+ unleaded high-octane fuel. Limited to just 3,000 units in the 2018 model year, with deliveries slated to begin this fall.
It might be serial number 00002, but as no. 00001 went to a convertible, this 1965 Ford Mustang is the very first Mustang hardtop. Exhaustively researched by historian Bob Fria, it's unclear whether the convertible or this car rolled off the assembly line first. What is clear is that it was built during pre-production preparation and was meant to end up at a Vancouver dealer to be on display for the car's introduction. Instead, it was accidentally misrouted and ended up in the cold of the Yukon. Fria eventually tracked the car down in 1997, and it underwent a two-year restoration that returned it to its original condition — complete with a date code correct 170ci inline 6-cylinder engine. As a result, it's not only a supremely rare piece of automotive history but one that's in pristine condition, as well.
