Default The Challenger Hellcat Demon is here: 0-60 2.3 seconds, [email protected]



The Dodge Demon is coming, an evil mutation of the Challenger SRT Hellcat - Autoblog

Sounds like a challenge hellcat designed specifically for the track.

I was just about to post this and you beat me to it. Looks like Ford is gonna be playing catch up if they don't announce a GT500 soon.

hopefully they drop a significant amount of weight if it's going to be a "track" car

That would make such a cheesy, awesome 80s action movie.

It'll be street legal. I'm betting a stripper model with more power.

im betting similarly, but still creature comforts that people get boners over like bluetooth and suede.

im thinking small weight reduction things, no rear seat perhaps...

a stickier/wider factory tire, and a suspension more setup directly for drag racing primarily.

This animated gif on the micro site looks like widened finders and meatier tires. Could this be the AWD Hellcat?

Awd would add even more weight. There would have to be a power bump to compensate. But that would be sick.

They tease that it's singularly focused and not going to be "everything to everybody", so it might be just straight-line.

They did just release their AWD V6 Challenger for 2017MY. An AWD Hellcat would be pure fucking insanity. Those half shafts would have to be made of fucking some unobtainium alloy to prevent snapping the fronts like twigs.

i feel like the gif @Bru posted though, with it showing smoke, implies burnouts... which isn't always AWD's thing.

but if it had 800hp, and was awd it probably still could
