Take a Look at the First OFFICIAL Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Photo Before Anyone Else

Official Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Photo Leaked Prior to New York Auto Show

Dodge has been teasing us with fragmented bits of 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon info for months now. What’s dubbed the most powerful production muscle car ever, and one of the most powerful vehicles the money can buy, is finally bound to be revealed at the New York Auto Show.

But why wait when we can gaze upon it right now? Thanks to something most of us can’t imagine their everyday lives anymore that we like to call internet, first official Dodge Challenger SRT Demon photo is already in circulation. Whether it’s another FCA’s marketing stunt or they simply ran out of teasing ideas (happens after a while), Demon’s photo is out there one week prior to hellish muscle car’s official debut.

Judging by the looks of it, upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will sport more than a few visual changes compared to other models in the lineup. First there are unique Demon badges. Then, there are extremely pronounced wheel arches. Finally, Demon packs a hood scoop that should be able to swallow any Focus RS, Civic Type R or Golf R cocky enough to get in its way.

Apart from being visually imposing, newest of Challengers will also sport some rather important performance advancements. The likes of which don’t appear in basic specs sheets, but have a large impact on car’s performance overall. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be 200 pounds lighter than current lineup’s performance flagship – SRT Hellcat. It’ll also offer twice as much grip due to extra wide tires, and 35% more launch force. Moreover, all of Demon’s sub systems have been specially tuned in order to deliver the best possible straight-line figures. Now we only have to wait for the official word to get out. And the start of sales which are likely scheduled for fall/winter.

About Nikola Potrebić

Although driving a piece of junk, Nikola is a true car enthusiast. Precious few things move him as muscle cars do - especially those from the bygone golden era. Which makes him wonder; why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been able to enjoy the likes of Pontiak Aztek, Fiat Multipla, and their "lovely" coevals this way - right? (sigh)
