The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Will Launch Your Face Into Another Dimension

Illustration for article titled The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Will Launch Your Face Into Another Dimension

Are you an astronaut? I didn’t think so. Because unless you are trained to strap your ass on a rocket and go into outer space, you aren’t ready for the incredible launch force of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

It is time again for the weekly Dodge news dump/blatant Jalopnik traffic grab on the new Demon. We already know the über-Challenger is going to suck, have optional seats, and come with big ol’ tires for the big beef boys who will drive it.

The next stop on the Dodge Demon hype train reveals that the new car will launch 35 percent harder than the Hellcat. How will it accomplish such a feat? Through multiplication.

That’s right, math dorks, shit is gonna get multiplied.

Dodge says the Demon will be upgraded with a higher stall speed torque converter and 3.09 rear axle gears. That hardware combined with the huge street legal drag radials, means an 18 percent increase in torque multiplication and twice the grip of the Hellcat.

This, of course, confirms that an automatic transmission will be available, but has not ruled out the possibility of a manual gearbox.

Hold onto your butts.

Another dimension? Another dimension.

Well, now, dont you tell me to smile
Tires hold the ground, make it worth your while
Its powers beyond what you can dial
Maybe its because Im so versatile
Style, profile, I said
It always brings me back when I hear, ooh, child!
From Woodward Ave out to Eight Mile
I run the marathon to the very last mile
Well, if you battle me I feel reviled
People always sayinmy style is wild
Youve got gall, youve got guile
Step to me Im a MOPAR-phile
If you want to battle youre in denial
Stick it in your anus, dont check my style
Go ahead, put my times on trial
Cast you off in the quarter mile.
