“We race the all new wheelie popping 1,025 HP Dodge Demon 170 vs my Tesla Model S Plaid down the 1/4 mile drag strip. Who you got between this epic war between electric and gas? The Dodge Demon 170 and Tesla Model S Plaid are two incredibly powerful cars, each showcasing different technological approaches and strengths. The 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 boasts an impressive 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the few gas-powered production cars with over 1,000 horsepower. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 1.66 seconds and complete a quarter-mile run in 8.91 seconds. These figures are achieved on a prepped surface with E85 fuel, marking the Demon 170 as one of the fastest production gas-powered cars ever. The 2023 Tesla Model S Plaid produces slightly less horsepower at 1,020 but demonstrates the advancements in electric vehicle technology. It features a tri-motor, all-wheel drive (AWD) setup and achieves 0-60 mph in about 1.98 seconds under favorable conditions, and completes the quarter-mile in approximately 9.25 seconds at 152.6 mph. The Plaid’s electric powertrain delivers power quietly compared to the thunderous roar of the Demon 170’s supercharged V8 engine. Both vehicles represent pinnacle achievements in their respective domains: the Demon 170 as a final act of defiance from traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) muscle cars and the Model S Plaid as a beacon of electric vehicle performance and efficiency. The choice between them would largely depend on personal preferences regarding electric versus ICE, driving experience, and the intended use of the vehicle​”
