The front side marker lights are styled to flow with the shape of the fender flares.
Additional defining exterior features include the wide Air-Grabber™ hood scoop – the largest functional hood scoop (45.2 square inches) of any production car – and new Demon logos flanking each fender. The driver is the focus in the interior of the Challenger SRT Demon, as it is for every model in the Challenger lineup.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT pDemon Engines and Transmission. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Powered by a 840-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Demon V-8, the limited-production Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the world’s most powerful factory-production V-8 – bar none. NHRA-certified 9.65 seconds @ 140 mph makes the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon the fastest ¼-mile car in the world. The red-painted Demon engine has been certified to the SAE J1349 industry standard for its horsepower and torque ratings. While the Demon V-8 shares its architecture with the 707-hp 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI Hellcat V-8, it is not simply a Hellcat engine with more boost. The Demon V-8 engine has 25 major component upgrades from the Hellcat engine, including supercharger, pistons, rods, valve train and fuel injection system.
Among the changes, compared with the Hellcat V-8, the Demon’s supercharged V-8 features: Larger supercharger: 2.7 liters versus 2.4 liters, Increased boost pressure: 14.5 psi versus 11.6 psi, Higher rpm limit: 6,500 rpm versus 6,200 rpm, Fuel: Two dual-stage fuel pumps versus one, Larger induction air box with three sources of intake air: Air-Grabber™ hood, driver-side Air-Catcher™ headlamp and an inlet near the wheel liner.
One key to the Challenger SRT Demon’s best-ever power output is air – the supercharged Demon V-8 takes in plenty of it. The SRT Demon’s Air-Grabber™ hood includes the largest functional hood scoop (45.2 square inches) of any production car. The Air-Grabber™ hood is sealed to the air box, which is also fed from the driver-side Air-Catcher™ headlamp and an inlet near the wheel liner. Combined, those sources give the Demon V-8 an air-flow rate of 1,150 cubic feet per minute, 18 percent greater than the Hellcat V-8 and the largest air induction volume of any production car.
