Nothing new to report, but why not watch one last 30-second video?by Robert Moore, on
Within the next couple of days Dodge’s Demon campaign will finally come to an end and what could be to coolest, production drag car ever built will finally be exposed. We know it’s lighter, sheds some amenities, uses the A/C to cool the engine, and can switch from premium to high-octane fuel with the press of a switch. It’s so torquey that it will fold a pair of drag tires will probably be a force to be reckoned with when it finally gets to the drag strip.
But, don’t get it twisted. I doubt this thing is going to be a 9-second monster. See, at the very end of this last teaser video, we see a slip printing out just before the video cuts out. Dodge made it a point to blur it out so that it’s not exactly legible, but it sure looks like a double-digit time to me. Maybe not, but I’m guessing we’ll see this thing run 10.5s out of the gate. Not bad, but we’ll just have to wait and see for sure. It sure does sound mean, though. All of the teasers have been a bit annoying, to be honest, but Dodge does have my attention.
The thing is, though, Hennessey just announced the Exorcist which is a Camaro ZL1 that’s massaged to deliver 1,000 horsepower at 966 pound-feet of torque. That’s more than the Demon is expected to deliver while Hennessey testing promises a 60-mph sprint in less than 3 seconds and a quarter-mile spring in less than 10. So, It might not be straight from the factory, but I have a feeling it just might outshine the demon. Of course, it will be more expensive too, coming at around $116,000 but it’s completely road legal. For now, I’m just ready to see full specs for the Demon, but I can’t wait to see who wins the battle between good and evil when the Exorcist and Demon go head to head on the strip.
