New video showcases "Air Grabber" cooling system

Dodge has just released the fifth video teaser of the Challenger SRT Demon, revealing more details about the upcoming muscle car. Along with the clip, Dodge also unleashed four new high-resolution photos. Both the video (called "Forced Induction") and the pictures highlight the coupe’s supercharger and "Air Grabber" system.

There aren’t any significant hints about engine data or the size of the new supercharged, but the soundtrack includes the roar of the 6.2-liter V-8 when idling and under full throttle. And needless to say, it sounds amazing.

Other than that, the video shows air entering through the two intakes flanking the headlights and the massive scoop atop the hood, which includes the "Air Grabber," described as the largest functional cold air intake ever installed on a production car. The system drops the air temperature by more than 30 degrees compared the Hellcat.

The Challenger SRT Demon is set to break cover at the 2017 New York Auto Show in April. Until then, Dodge is set to release nine more videos. The next one will hit the Interwebz next Thursday (February 20). Stick around for updates.

Press Release

“Gimme fuel! Gimme fire! Gimme that which I desire!” is poetry by Metallica that speaks to every gearhead.

But, any engine builder will be quick to point out that the “power of that poetry” is actually limited; limited by the chemistry of combustion; limited by thin air.

Because the key to increasing the power output of the Challenger SRT Demon’s supercharged HEMI, or any engine for that matter, is a function of how much cool air you can get in the engine.

To maximize the Demon’s full potential, SRT has added:

The largest functional “Air Grabber” cold air intake hood ever installed on a production vehicle, measuring more than 45 square inches
A significantly larger air box that is sealed and ducted to the hood scoop
Two illuminated functional “Air Catcher” headlamps

The combination gives the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon significantly increased airflow, while also dropping the inlet air temperature by more than 30 degrees compared with the Hellcat.

Fans should visit www.ifyouknowyouknow.com to watch the “Forced Induction” video multiple times. Just like the previous videos, nothing is a coincidence and everything means something. Follow along with other teaser videos to learn more about what’s next from Dodge and SRT.
