What Happens To Your Christmas Tree At 174 MPH?

  What Happens To Your Christmas Tree At 174 MPH? O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree, how speedy are thy branches. The holidays are here, and folks that celebrate Christmas need to get their tree up quickly because the big day is coming very soon. In a new video, Hennessey Performance shows the fastest way it knows to haul an evergreen home. The company mounts some temporary roof rails to a new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody and straps a tree to the muscle car. The supercharged machine then heads out onto Continental Tires' test track in Texas to see how a conifer affects the car's top speed.

Dodge's new Shakedown package adds styling inspired by the Shakedown Challenger SEMA show car to the brand's Challenger coupe.

Watch Hennessey Take The Dodge Challenger Demon To Its Top Speed

  Watch Hennessey Take The Dodge Challenger Demon To Its Top Speed It’s not as high as you think, but the acceleration is just brutal. Research 2018 dodge challenger See Full Specs See Pricing There’s no denying that horsepower junkies have been captivated by the Challenger SRT Demon since Dodge unveiled the barely-street legal drag racer almost a year ago. We know it accelerates like mad – to refresh your memory Dodge says it will reach 60 miles per hour in 2.3 seconds and trip the quarter-mile lights in 9.65 seconds, provided it's set up to run racing fuel.

The package, priced at $995, is limited to shaker-hood-equipped Challenger R/T, R/T Plus, and 392 Scat Pack models. It adds asymmetrical black stripes that cover the hood, roof, and trunk of the car. Notably, the stripes bend around the shaker hood scoop, a feature that's shared with the Shakedown Challenger show car.

Additionally, Challengers equipped with the Shakedown package include white gauges and an upgraded audio system: a six-speaker system in the R/T and a nine-speaker unit in R/T Plus and 392 Scat Pack trims.

Sadly, the Shakedown package brings no additional performance features to the Challenger, which means Shakedown-equipped Challengers continue to use either a 375-hp 5.7-liter V-8 engine in R/T and R/T Plus models or a 485-hp 6.4-liter V-8 in the 392 Scat Pack.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Is Back For 2019 With Two Giant Nostrils On The Hood .
The drag nightmare of a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was only planned for one model year, but its less powerful sibling isn’t going anywhere. The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is a go, and the first teaser images of the car shows that it’ll have a full-on snout with dual snorkels on the hood. Can you practically see this thing breathing heavily like it’s about to stampede you? Yeah, same. It’s a machine of drag-strip destruction that now looks like one, too, and it’s terrifying—like a big, plastic, intimidating nightmare that you can’t wake up from. Mission accomplished on that one.© Provided by Univision Interactive Media, Inc.
