We Thought So: Teaser Video Suggest Dodge’s SRT Demon Has More Than 750 HP
There is no version of the Dodge Challenger that could be considered pedestrian, not now, or when it was introduced. These days, though, since the advent of the SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower, it’s the most powerful muscle car in the world. But something more powerful is coming. Something designed to stare down quarter-mile records and eat them for breakfast. That car is the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon.
It’s been teased for months now, and its unveiling at the New York Auto Show is but a few weeks away. The teaser videos have covered everything from the intense grip of the barely-legal drag radial tires to its unique air intakes and torque management. The one thing they haven’t disclosed is anything close to its horsepower numbers. Until recently.
In a video called “Performance Pages,” we get two telling glimpses of the car’s output. One look is at its 0-60 time, which at three seconds, is a half-second quicker than the SRT Hellcat. The second, on the Dyno page, shows a graph of peak horsepower. While the current drive, as shown in the video, sits at 750 hp, the graph goes as high as 850, leading many to believe that the SRT Demon will have 800+ ponies.
We’ll find out the answer to that question soon enough. In the meantime, you can find all the teasers on Dodge’s website. If you have a more immediate need for a performance-tuned, enthusiast-approved set of wheels, our Dodge dealership in Beaumont, TX is ready and waiting to assist.
