This Is The First Official Photo Of The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon


Things will never be the same. Starting now.

For the past several Thursdays, Dodge has released video teasers for its 2018 Challenger SRT Demon. This drag racer-inspired madness of a muscle car will make its official debut this week at the New York Auto Show, alongside the also just revealed 707-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. But today the first official photo, courtesy of Carscoops, of the Demon has made its way online. What? You were expecting a lazy Sunday? More details will come soon, but this single image reveals the wider wheel arches and that massive hood scoop.

Powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8, word has it output has been increased to 757 hp, and the sole transmission will be an automatic. Remember, this is as close to a street legal drag racer you’ll ever find. Weight has also been shaved off by at least 200 pounds compared to the standard Challenger Hellcat. Heck, the front passenger and rear seats are optional. The Demon’s engine, transmission, launch control, and all other vital systems have all been re-calibrated. It can even switch to high-octane race fuel on demand – another first for a factory production car. Expect full details to arrive very shortly. We’ll also be on hand at New York for additional coverage and live photos.
