Diving into Demon design

by David Zatz on

Why does the Dodge Challenger Demon have fender flares?

Allpar’s Patrick Rall asked Dodge designer Mark Trostle this and several other questions about the unique factory drag car. The result is an exclusive look at the why-and-how of the flares, air-grabber hood, front fascia, crate wheels, lack of hood pins, and even why the Demon name isn’t on the outside of the car.  Continue to the main story.
