Dodge has continued its near two-month strip-tease of the upcoming Challenger SRT Demon. This time the company is focusing on the combustion with a new installment video called “Forced Induction,” which confirms a few more details about the car.
Specifically this tease confirms the Demon will be powered by a supercharged HEMI V-8, likely the basis of which will be the same one found under the hood of the 707 horsepower Hellcat models. But we definitely know there are some mechanical changes to the engine, also confirmed today.
The Demon will feature a new cold air induction system, which includes the largest hood intake ever installed on a production vehicle. In fact, it will use a staggering 45 square inches of space to suck cold air into that HEMI combustion system. A larger air box is naturally included, which combined will lower the air temperature coming into the inlet be about 30 degrees versus the Hellcat engine.
All that cold air is undoubtedly going to drive the engine’s specifications upward, rumored to be near 757 horsepower.
The new teaser and all the others can be found at www.ifyouknowyouknow.com. The car will be fully revealed, finally, in April at the New York Auto Show.
