Dodge has released its weekly teaser video for the upcoming Challenger SRT Demon.

This week’s video is called 'Forced Induction,' and Dodge has revealed that the Demon will have the biggest cold air intake hood ever installed on a production vehicle. This 45-square-inch Air Grabber will be key to squeezing more output from the supercharged Hemi V8.

In addition to the giant hood scoop, the Demon will have illuminated Air Catcher headlights to get even more air flow. The changes mean the air inlet temperature will be 30 colder compared to the regular Hellcat.

Here’s what else we know about the Demon so far: The even crazier widebody Hellcat will be a stipped-out drag racer with fat (yet still street legal) drag radials on all four corners. Each Demon will come with a crate filled with spare parts that will help transform the Demon from a drag car to a street-legal cruiser. The Demon will also be more than 200 pounds lighter and 3.5 inches wider than the Hellcat. We don’t know anything yet about drag times or output, but Dodge has put some Easter Eggs into each of its teaser videos that might hint at how quick it will be.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be fully revealed at the New York Auto Show in April.

Dodge Demon Will Launch Harder than a Hellcat

Dodge Demon Will Launch Harder than a Hellcat

Feb 16, 2017



During Dodge’s long and slow tease of its Challenger SRT Demon, we learned that it will come with Nitto NT05R street-legal drag radials, but now we know the impact those tires have on the development and performance of the car.

In the latest teaser, a 17-second long video titled “Multiplication,” Dodge showcases the Demon and its tires in a slow-motion launch.

The 18-inch 315/40R spec tires are 12.6 inches wide and Dodge says they were designed and developed specifically for the Challenger SRT Demon with a new compound and tire construction.

Compared to the 707-horsepower Challenger SRT Hellcat, this means the Demon will have a 15 percent larger tire contact patch and over twice as much grip. The tires also have a higher threshold for launch loads, so Dodge saw fit to give the car a higher stall speed torque converter and 3.09 rear axle gears, which is up from 2.62 on automatic equipped Hellcats.

With an 18-percent increase in converter torque multiplication and rear axle torque multiplication, the Demon will launch at higher RPMs and should launch harder than a Hellcat would, generating 35 percent more launch force than the old 707-horsepower beast.

This has been an interesting tease for the Dodge coupe, and we’re starting to get a better understanding of what Dodge has up its sleeve. There’s still seven more weeks until the cars official debut at the New York Auto Show, and the company is promising more information by then.

There’s a little wrinkle in the story of these tires.
