The skinny drag radials on the front seen here are part of the optional serialized Demon crate. The car will arrive on four identical 315/40R18 Nitto drag radials like the ones shown on the rear of the car.
Underneath those wide flares is a unique suspension featuring Bilstein adaptive dampers tuned specifically to maximize weight transfer for drag racing. Compared to a garden-variety Hellcat, the Demon has softer springs (35 percent up front, 28 percent out back) and hollow antiroll bars that are both softer and lighter (75 percent lower rate up front, 44 percent lower in the rear).
With only 3,000 examples coming to the US, you're not likely to see yourself coming and going. That said, Dodge is offering a surprisingly large paint selection, including these 14 colors: B5 Blue, Billet Silver, Destroyer Grey, F8 Green, Go Mango, Granite Crystal, Indigo Blue, Maximum Steel, Octane Red, Pitch Black, Plum Crazy, TorRed, White Knuckle and Yellow Jacket.
Performance Pages also include an Eco mode (tee-hee) and a Valet setting that disables select performance features like launch control and shift paddles. It also curbs horsepower and reduces the redline to 4,000 rpm.
