Leading up to the reveal of the new 2018 Challenger SRT Demon we learned it will weigh more than 200 pounds less than a Hellcat. Now, we know exactly how.
Dodge officials tell us that the Demon weighs exactly 215 pounds less than a Hellcat, but how it got there is the stuff we love to endlessly recite before bedtime.
Here’s a detailed breakdown of how the Demon went on a diet in its evolution from its Hellcat sibling:
As you can tell from the exhaustive list, the Demon has lost 232 pounds, but it gains back 17 pounds in the process of becoming a Demon thanks to all the extras on the powertrain to make sure it doesn't destruct itself.
