Car New | 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: A muscle car so brutal it's already banned
Nobody quite knew what to expect when Dodge's Hellcats were first introduced for 2015. Magazine covers and YouTube videos were all but assured, but actual sales? The crystal ball wasn't exactly clear. As it turns out, there's a ready and robust appetite for SRT Chargers and Challengers brandishing 707 horsepower, and apparently enough of a buying audience for the same powertrain to slot into a new SUV (or two!), as well.
Flushed with that kind of success, it's perhaps unsurprising that parent Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles has let SRT's engineers completely off the chain, freeing them to create the certifiably insane Challenger SRT Demon that's just debuted at a star-studded event ahead of the New York Auto Show.
