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).

The flares add 3.5 inches to the Demon's overall width, and a lot more to its visual impact.

The Demon comes standard with only one seat -- for the driver. If you want a passenger seat or rear bench, be prepared to shell out $1 each. No, really.

The Demon Crate is an optional extra, but I can't imagine buyers passing up on it, if only for the collector value. Serialized and featuring the buyer's name and VIN, the crate includes the following:

  • Performance powertrain control module with high-octane engine calibration
  • Replacement switch module containing high-octane button
  • Conical performance air filter
  • Passenger mirror block-off plate
  • Narrow, front-runner drag wheels
  • Demon-branded track tools:
  • Hydraulic floor jack with carrying bag
  • Cordless impact wrench with charger
  • Torque wrench with extension and socket
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Fender cover
  • Tool bag
  • Foam case that fits into the SRT Demon trunk and securely holds the front runner wheels and track tools

A standard line lock will help make for better burnouts by selectively locking the front brakes. You'll want those tires nice and warm before awakening the Demon under the hood.
