    It's a fact! As incredible as it sounds, Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car development, was quoted in the Detroit Free Press, today, that FCA will be producing a new limited model called the Challenger Demon SRT that will have MORE horsepower than the Hellcat!

    It will debut at the New York International Auto Show, on April 15, 2017.

    In September, Automobile magazine reported that Dodge would be producing a wide-body Challenger ADR (American Drag Racer) model in 2017.

    It said, "CA has delayed a number of product launches and updates across its brands, including Dodge. Though the shifting of Charger and Challenger to the Alfa Romeo Giulia's new Giorgio platform has been put on hold, the current models will get special variants, including an all-wheel-drive version of the Challenger and a wide-bodied Challenger SRT Hellcat, to tide fans over."

    Could the ADR be the new Demon?

    Here is the announcement from FCA and a link to several teaser commercials from Dodge.

    Here is an article from digital trends. It suspects that the Demon will be an AWD car.

    "Dodge has announced a new version of the Challenger muscle car that will be even more extreme than the vaunted Hellcat. Named Demon, the company’s next hot rod will make its official debut in April at the New York Auto Show.

    The Fiat-owned brand explains the upcoming model will raise the bar in terms of power and speed. Nothing is official yet, but we’re inclined to believe it will boast more grunt than the 707-horsepower Hellcat (pictured). The Demon could also use a high-performance version of the new Challenger GT‘s all-wheel drive system to transfer its power to the asphalt.

    “Most cars attempt to be everything to everybody. Then there are the rare few that revel in a single objective, rendering them totally irresistible to a subculture. 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,” explained Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis.

    To build up excitement for the model, Dodge has launched a miniseries of short teaser videos that will be published on a new website named If You Know, You Know. The first video is already live, but it provides absolutely nothing in the way of meaningful details about the Challenger Demon.
    Instead, it shows a metallic, cheetah-like Hellcat being transported in a cage labeled “warning: ferocious animal inside.” The cage is opened, and the animal slowly walks out onto an empty Detroit street littered with about a dozen albino mice. It explodes after drinking a green, slime-like liquid and turns into a demon-esque superhero. All told, the flick looks more like a trailer for a Marvel movie than a teaser video for a sports car.

    Dodge will publish additional — and hopefully more informative — videos every week until the Challenger Demon is unveiled in the Big Apple. The coupe will be branded a 2018 model when it arrives in showrooms."

    Here is a Motor Trend article regarding the Demon.

    2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: a Hellcat on Steroids? - Motor Trend

    Some quotable lines from the article:

    "Demon is expected to leave 707-hp hellcats in its dust."

    "FCA is planning a mic drop ahead of the New York Auto Show when it comes to American muscle cars. That is when the automaker will stage the world debut of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, a Hellcat on steroids, and what is expected to be the fastest muscle car in the world.

    "The news of even more power from Dodge comes as speculation mounts about what to expect from the next Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang which also had an initial target of at least 600 hp and likely has also ratcheted up its ambitions."

    "We await further news about the Demon and whether this is the ultimate drag racer or a street legal hot rod. Whatever the final numbers, Dodge has thrown down the gauntlet. The Hellcat has already become an icon for the Dodge brand and the Demon drop seems designed to cement its supremacy in the Motor City."

    Here is a Demon spy shot.

    I don't care for the "add-on" fender flairs or the hood scoop.

    Sounds like one of those side of the road discussions - COP: "you know why I pulled you over sir"? Driver: "cause I let you"!!!
