Today Fiat Chrysler released more information on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which is to debut in early April at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.
In a press release, FCA described the Demon SRT as Dodge’s “new ultimate performance halo,” car. It will come with special Demon-branded Nitto NT05R drag radials (above), which will be 315mm wide at all four corners and wrapped around new lightweight 18-inch wheels. The tires, which were designed and developed exclusively for the car, will make the Demon the first-ever production car offered with drag radials.
Dodge also confirmed the Demon will feature integrated fender flares that will add 3.5-inches in width on each side. The automaker says the combination of the extra wide wheels, high-profile drag radials and integrated fender flares will give the car “an intimidating, purposeful stance.” and we’d have to agree. Just have a look for yourself:
FCA has been slowly releasing information on the Demon over the last few weeks. In its first release, the automaker confirmed it would be based the Challenger Hellcat but would be even more extreme. A second teaser video revealed the car would undergo a weight reduction process, with rumors indicating the Demon will weigh around 200 lbs less than the Hellcat. More power may also be in store, but Dodge has yet to even so much as mention the supercharged mill.
More information on the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon SRT will be released in the weeks leading up to the 2017 NY Auto Show, and that’s if it doesn’t leak entirely. We’re looking at you, Vin Diesel.
