Dodge, like many of the Group’s brands FCA are investing time and resources to refresh their ranges everything possible to delay the launch of their successors. Hence, a product so veteran as the Dodge Challenger has expanded the range with two new versions in very little time, as are the wild SRT Demon and this new variant widened the SRT Hellcat taking as inspiration to the Demon.

Between the SRT Hellcat and Demon there is a very diffuse, while the Hellcat has 717 CV (707 hp) the new Demon raises his power up to a more than impressive 819 CV (851 HP with fuel of 100 octane), so that, in the middle of both does not seem to have too much space for another model. At least until the arrival of this version SRT Hellcat Widebody, which takes the axes of the Demon and its wide wheel arches, but with respect to the mechanical specifications of the Hellcat, which takes as a basis. Model that we had already hunted previously and that we show in spy photos.
