The first Demon hint?

by David Zatz on

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is coming – but what is it?

The first “hint” we saw on the Internet was the reflection of Challenger SRT headlights in the driver’s sunglasses. Okay… now we know it’s a Challenger. Just like the name “Dodge Challenger SRT Demon” suggests.

It’s easy enough to suspect that the car is designed to do the quarter mile faster than a normal Challenger SRT Hellcat — Tim Kuniskis’ quote is, “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 website shows an 89 second video dubbed “Cage” which logged a million views within hours.  The beast in the cage bites a gas can and throws it to one side. The natural conclusion is it’s an electric car, but reader “Muther” wrote: “That was not just a gas can. That was race gas, in a race gas can. He threw it aside, meaning that this car can run with full race cars, and it does not need race gas, it needs street gas.

“It was a metaphor, implying that this is a street legal car that is as fast as full race cars.”
