Dodge Challenger to get Demonised

The Dodge Challenger is pure American muscle. The Ford Mustang rival turned heads with its raucous version – the Hellcat. Well, Dodge is planning to build an even racier version of the Challenger and to name it has revived the 40-year old badge - Demon.

The first Dodge Demon was also a pure-bred muscle car, a rebadged Plymouth Duster. The Dodge Challenger Demon might be powered by a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine unleashing more than 700bhp of power and over 1000Nm of torque. The Demon will supersede the Hellcat in the Dodge scheme of things. While the Hellcat is more of a straight-line scorcher, the Demon might have the ability to get around corners which means a wider track and reworked suspension geometry to start with.

The Dodge Demon might turn out to be the performance halo car and not the typical American muscle car with the Viper seemingly at the end of the road. Dodge has started teasing the Demon with satanic teaser video clips on with excerpts from Marvel comic movies and Metallica numbers.
