As Dodge continues its weekly teases of what will likely be the world’s fastest muscle car (taking the throne of the 707-hp Dodge Hellcat), a couple of things have been revealed about the Demon.
First, the Dodge Demon (which is owned by Fiat Chrysler ( FCAU) ) will be the first-ever factory production auto with street legal drag tires. As a result of the extra wide treads, the Demon will sport some aggressive-looking side fenders. It will cburn out 900 horsepower.
The Demon — and all its wonderful specs — is scheduled to be unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in April. Meanwhile, the Demon will weigh about 215 pounds less than a Hellcat, reported Motor Authority.
A Hellcat weighs in at about 4,448 pounds. To cut the weight, Dodge has reportedly removed the passenger front seat and rear bench seat.
Dodge has also introduced the Demon Crate, a special equipment pack that turns the car from a regular street ride into an all-out drag-strip demolisher.
