The Dodge Challenger Demon will outdo the Hellcat
Be scared: new SRT Demon will be even more unhinged than 707bhp Hellcat
The Dodge Hellcat range. Pretty nuts, no? Muscle cars with just one driven axle yet 707bhp to attempt to send through it. You’d be mad to want more power.
But if you are, fear not, for Dodge has found yet more power somewhere within its HQ. April’s New York motor show will yield the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
The Demon, if the name isn’t enough of a clue, should be feared. As should anything that sits above the Hellcat in a range of cars. The teaser video above should also give you some idea of how ferocious this car will be. As well as being utterly odd.
There’s going to be a teaser video each week, with more actual information on the car hopefully contained in each. This first one is good for drama and special effects, but it reveals little other than the car will be quite unhinged. And probably quite at home on a drag strip.
“Most cars attempt to be everything to everybody. Then there are the rare few that revel in a single objective, rendering them totally irresistible to a subculture,” says Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger cars at Dodge. “The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is conceived, designed and engineered for a subculture of enthusiasts who know that a tenth is a car and a half second is your reputation.”
The Demon badge has history with Dodge, but never attached to something quite as mad as this. In lieu of actual information, it’s time to take a punt on how much power it will actually have. More than 707bhp, for sure. But how much more? 750? 800? A million?
