Latest Dodge Demon Teaser Hints at Car's 'Dual Purpose'
Feb 02 2017 by Joanne Wise
We already know all Chargers and Challengers - even the Hellcat siblings - are made in Brampton, Ontario.
In a nod to the original Ramchargers Club, a group of '60s Mopar engineers who pooled their paychecks together to start drag racing Hemi-powered brutes, Dodge featured Tom Coddington to demonstrate the Demon Crate's personalized, serialized plaque. With the latest teaser for the Dodge Demon, Dodge sets out to remind us all why it's important not to assume things. So far, we know that the Dodge Demon will be a single-seat, stripped-out muscle auto with fat drag radials on all four corners, and that it will be more than 200 pounds lighter than the regular Hellcat.
Each crate is also crested with a special Demon badge, pictured above, that displays the owner's name, VIN sequence and the serial number.
In the coming weeks, Dodge will continue to bring fans and followers in on more details by slowly peeling away layer upon layer of the new Challenger SRT Demon via video shorts that highlight the engineering that has gone into its development.
Dodge says it will offer the Demon with a crate of parts, 18 in total, including spare wheels, a number of performance parts, and tools to install or remove them all. Assuming you're handy with a wrench, that is. "[The] general consensus seems to be that the Challenger SRT Demon is a single-seat, gutted-out, purpose-built drag vehicle", Dodge says.
