When Dodge first started to talk up the coming SRT Demon Challenger, it talked about the car being 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat. As it turns out the Demon comes by that weight savings in a way that many buyers might not like. To save a big portion of that weight, you have to opt for the optional package that ditches all the seats beside the driver seat.
Ditching all the seats but the driver seat sheds 113 pound of the weight savings. That means if you want to take anyone with you on your run down the quarter mile, you won’t save the weight. The car also ditches the carpet, the radio has only two speakers, and a bunch of parking sensors are ditched.
The car has manual tilt and telescopic steering and lightweight 18×11-inch wheels and lighter four piston brakes. The car has massive drag radials signaling this car is meant as a pure straight line king.
