The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is an imperfect car. It was built only for the 2018 model year, with roughly 570 US-market models finished in TorRed.

The reason why we call it imperfect is because a great many things need to go right for it in order to do what Dodge claims it can do. Plus, there’s a lot of prep-work that goes into getting your Demon ready to launch.

Of course, with everything going as planned, this is without a doubt one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the world, thanks to its 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 that’s rated at 808 HP (819 PS) on 91 octane gasoline and 840 HP (852 PS) on 100 octane fuel.

So what can you do if you want a new one? First of all, since production has ended, settle for “barely used” instead, like this 209-mile (336 km) example getting auctioned off through Bring a Trailer. Second, get ready to pay above sticker price, especially if it’s well-kept.

The sticker on this Demon reads $86,762, with additional features including the Air Catcher headlights, Air Grabber hood, fender flares, Demon badging, black fuel cap, black decklid spoiler and dual exhausts. Inside, there’s black cloth on the bolstered front seats to go with white stitching and Demon embroidery. The steering wheel meanwhile is wrapped in Alcantara for superior grip – which you need if you’re planning on launching the car hard.

As for the Demon Crate, it packs the race-tuned ECU, a Snap-On tool kit, Demon branded jack and those silly, yet very useful, narrow drag racing wheels for the front axle.

Officially, the Challenger SRT Demon is capable of hitting 30 mph (48 km/h) in 1 second, 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.3 seconds, 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.1 seconds and a top speed that’s factory limited at 168 mph (270 km/h). It can also cover a quarter mile in just 9.65 seconds at 140.09 mph (225.45 km/h).

How much will it go for? Well, there surely is no way of knowing, but at the time of writing, and with five days left in the auction, it had already attracted a highest bid of $100,000.

LG Chem intends on more than doubling its production capacity of battery cells it makes in China for Tesla in 2021.

Tesla has ambitious plans to continue its ramp-up of production around the world and needs its battery suppliers to keep up.

According to Reuters, LG Chem will ship its increased output from China and Korea to Tesla’s factories in Germany and the United States. This move comes after LG Chem added production lines in South Korea earlier this year to meet demand from the automaker’s Fremont factory in California.

“Tesla simply doesn’t have enough battery cells,” an individual with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. “So LG Chem is going to more than double China output.”

“We’re continuing to expand capacity for cylindrical battery cells in response to growing demand from automakers but we can’t comment on specific customers,” added an LG Chem spokesman.

Last week it was revealed that LG Chem will invest $500 million over the next year to raise annual production capacity of 21700 cylindrical battery cells at its Nanjing plant. This will see the number of production lines increase from eight to at least 17.

LG Chem currently supplies the battery cells to the Tesla Model 3 built in Shanghai. Each vehicle uses 4,416 battery cells and each LG Chem production line can produce up to 7 million cells a month. With 17 lines up and running, it will be able to cater to up to 323,000 vehicles annually. The company will also be the sole supplier of battery cells for the Model Y built in Shanghai, as well as handling the initial supply of battery cells for Teslas built at the Berlin plant.

Nowadays, BMWs are comfortable, premium and filled with all sorts of amenities. But that wasn’t always the case, because the journey that has turned it into a successful company was arduous and built on some models that wouldn’t even be considered in today’s game, such as the Isetta.

Made under license in several countries, the bubble car was supposed to be cheap and easy to run. The word safety was not yet known to car makers when it came out in the 1950s, and the only things inside are the steering wheel, gearshift lever, pedals and a couple of switches to operate the windscreen wiper, lights and heater.

Those tiny kidney grilles are not fake, as some might assume. And they don’t cool the engine either, simply because it rests at the back.

Unsurprisingly for a tiny vehicle made almost seven decades ago, the Isetta packed a very small engine, with the Isetta 300 depicted in the video below featuring a 300 cc single-cylinder motor producing 13 horsepower. There is no 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time because… well, it cannot go that fast, and the maximum recommended cruising speed is, apparently, 46 mph (74 km/h) in fourth gear.

So, how does the world look like from inside the Isetta in 2020? Quite fun, for the most part, and slow, but you can find out all about that in the review that follows.
