It’ll be 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat, the 707 horsepower supercharged beast that answered the question: “how much power can a car that costs $60,000 reasonably have?” The answer to that question, apparently, is “a s**tload of power.”
It’s not totally clear what the plate means. If you add ‘1′ to both figures, you get 12.576@135—12.576 seconds at 135 mph—but that is a slower quarter mile than the Hellcat this car supersedes.
There’s been some speculation that the Demon will come with all-wheel-drive that could make use of the grip, but an X-Ray rendering Dodge released of the car and video of it doing a smoky burnout seem to rule this out.
Although details on the engine have remained silent there is no doubt of the power since other models like the Hellcat has been supercharged with a 6.2-liter V-8. The V8 is capable of 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. For Demon Dodger will definitely up the game.
