For those who didn’t think the Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat models, with their 707-horsepower hemi V-8s were powerful enough, salvation is coming – in the form of the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon set to make its debut at the New York International Auto Show three months from now.
The Demon name is a blast from the past. It was used for one of the old Chrysler Corp.’s classic ‘70s muscle cars, though back then it was based off the old two-door Dodge Dart. Dodge hinted it might want to resurrect the name with the debuting of a roadster concept, dubbed Dodge Demon, that made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007.
The new beast, it turns out, will be based off the same modern coupe as one of Fiat Chrysler’s current Hellcat models, the Dodge Challenger SRT. But it apparently has some devilish new tricks.
