On the stand at the show, the car was displayed with its front wheels up in the air, emulating the wheelie it can purportedly do from a fast start.

The SRT Demon makes the 15th iteration of the Challenger, and trumps the Hellcat in power.

The 6.2-liter V8 under the hood uses a supercharger to achieve its tremendous power.
