2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: a Hellcat on Steroids?

  2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: a Hellcat on Steroids? FCA is planning a mic drop ahead of the New York Auto Show when it comes to American muscle cars. That is saying something, given that the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi Hellcat engine already puts out 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, inducing ridiculous power-fuelled grins for those who drive it in a Challenger SRT Hellcat coupe or the Charger SRT Hellcat sedan. They are currently offered with a choice of a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic. Dodge also surprised the industry by introducing the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat for less than $60,000.

Saying goodbye to the Hennessey Venom GT

  Saying goodbye to the Hennessey Venom GT After one prototype, six hardtops, six open-top spyders and three world records, production of America's fastest car is officially coming to an end. So, to mark the occasion, the Houston, Texas-based company is building a last, commemorative model called, rather fittingly "The Final Edition." It boasts a glacier blue external paint finish with white racing stripes. However, beyond the external detailing, the car remains "stock."

We've got roughly another week before Dodge reveals its hellish Challenger Demon, but Hennessey has already produced a rival. It's called the Exorcist, and both the name and Hennessey's press release make it clear the car is designed to be the anti-Demon. That may not come across visually, since on the surface it's just a standard Camaro ZL1 with decals. But underneath is an LT4 V8 tuned to 1,000 horsepower and 966 lb-ft of torque.

To hit those lofty outputs, Hennessey ditched the standard supercharger for a bigger one and added an upgraded intercooler. The company also fitted a more aggressive camshaft, ported heads, long-tube headers, and tuned the ECU. Coupled with drag tires, Hennessey claims the Exorcist is good for a 0-60 mph time of under 3 seconds and a quarter-mile time of under 10 seconds. And Hennessey will sell you a set of drag radials to help you achieve those times, but like the rest of the package it'll cost you.

The 2018 Dodge Demon sounds like nothing else on the road

  The 2018 Dodge Demon sounds like nothing else on the road The launch system can adjust fuel and timing on the fly.The Dodge Demon seems to have a torque problem, if making too much to easily contain can be considered a problem. In order to keep all that twist under control, the Demon has a new torque reserve launch system that works all sorts of engineering black magic to build boost without overloading the rear tires and brakes. That system, combined with the sticky Nittos and the fancy new suspension, should lead to some pretty spectacular 60-foot and 1/4-mile times.

The complete package, including the Exorcist decals, rings in at $55,000 – and that's on top of the Camaro ZL1 you have to supply. Unless you already have one or picked up a used or discounted example, the least you'll pay for an Exorcist is just over $118,000. And if you want Hennessey to upgrade an automatic, you'll be spending another $9,950 to upgrade the transmission. On the plus side, the Exorcist upgrade does come with a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty. It's also going to be an exclusive vehicle, with only 100 built each year. The company offers a couple of options, too. For $8,995 you can get a drag pack with two wheels shod in Nitto drag tires along with a floor jack, tool kit, and upgraded driveshaft. And if track driving is more your style, the road race pack comes with a set of lightweight wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for $6,995.

The Hennessey Exorcist is certainly an impressive machine. And the video of it smoking tires is certainly entertaining. However, it's probably still worth waiting a week before ordering one to see what the Challenger Demon will be like. And if you're a bow-tie booster, you may still want to wait, since the ZL1 1LE is on its way and will likely be the better road course toy – though the Exorcist would likely stomp it on the drag strip.
