American muscle has traditionally been defined as any vehicle wearing a badge from the “Big 3” and is better at the straight quarter mile than through any corners. The Dodge Hellcat brothers, the Challenger and Charger, are the modern examples of this definition. With a ridiculous 707 horsepower on tap from a supercharger 6.2L Hemi V8, the Hellcat can light up its rear tires into a cloud of smoke with the slightest movement from your right ankle. Now any rational person would think that the Hellcat is already overpowered, which would be correct. But Dodge doesn’t seem to be rational. Dodge seems to have gone mental and announced the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to be unveiled at April’s New York Auto Show.

Judging by the naming structure, the Hellcat is the Demon’s pet. Dodge wants us to know the Hellcat was just a house kitty for the real tire killer. The car that will no doubt most likely try to kill it’s owners as soon as they go near the throttle.

Dodge isn’t letting out too many details at the moment, but they made it clear that this will be a rather focused car. Timothy Kuniskis, head FCA’s North American brands, as gone on record saying “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”. So yeah, the Demon won’t be a corner-carving track-focused car. But it does promise to be ridiculously fast in a straight line. If the Hellcat has “only” 707 horsepower, expect the Demon to pack even more under the hood.
