Above is a leaked image of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon drag racer. The leaked image began to circulate yesterday, but much of the precise specifications are still embargoed. Manufacturers usually embargo images, videos, and specifications until a precise reveal time (usually associated with a major auto show).
There is now new information about the horsepower ratings that came to light via the LX & Beyond Nationals Facebook page. (NOTE: this is NOT official horsepower specifications from Dodge SRT.)
Dodge did officially reveal that the Demon will be capable of running on 100 octane “race” fuel. The source at LX & Beyond Nationals reports that the 2018 Demon will have three power modes: 757 hp, 815 hp, and 1,023 hp. The latter rating of 1,023 horsepower is reported to be available with 100 octane fuel, crate PCM computer (Demon is available with an optional crate full of parts and tools), and a special “Drag Mode” initiated.
No matter what the actual horsepower and torque number are, one thing is for sure – the 2018 Demon will be a drag strip monster capable of blistering 1/4 mile times.
TFLcar will be in New York City for the official debut of the demonic car.
We will broadcast the reveal Live! on TFLnow Youtube channel on Apr 11th, 2017 at 8pm EST.
Please tune in to the channel for all the latest. We will also get expert interviews and all specifications and details for you on TFLcar.
