We have a name.
For a long time, Dodge has been rumored to be building a widebody Hellcat dubbed the ADR. We had thought that perhaps we’d see it at the Detroit Auto Show. That didn’t happen, but just a day after we left the show, we do have some info on the car: its name.
Dubbed the Challenger SRT Demon, Dodge is calling the car its new ultimate performance halo. Dodge also said that the Demon is for “a subculture of enthusiasts who know that a tenth is a car and a half second is your reputation.”

What does that mean, exactly? Well, it sounds like the Demon will be crazy quick on the dragstrip, likely thanks to more rubber out back to fit underneath a newer widebody. That’s something that the Hellcat has needed since day one, because it doesn’t hook up. Ever.
And what about power? It could have more, can’t everything have more? 707 is a lot, but that engine is capable of higher numbers. Maybe 808? Or maybe it’ll make less, something like 666, so they can really tie it in to the whole Demon name.
We’re also betting that the Demon can do a burnout, because, if you haven’t heard, the Hellcat can do one.
Either way, all we have is the logo up top and this video below, which makes the Demon seem like a car dreamt up by Michael Bay.
