It’s not much of a surprise, but after Hennessey Performance Engineering went through all the trouble of undermining the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Demon with the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Exorcist, a hotter Demon is coming, too.
According to Hennessey’s website, the Texas-based performance house will be offering “a line of high-performance and racing upgrades for the 2018 Dodge Demon,” including headers, engine tuning and an upgraded supercharger system that will boost output to 1,000 or 1,500 horsepower.
HPE will also give the Demon the green light for NHRA drag strips by fitting a factory roll cage and parachute. Currently, the Demon is banned from NHRA tracks because it’s simply too fast for its regulations in factory form.
Don’t expect HPE to roll out its Demon upgrades right away, though. Dodge will only begin production until late this year. Hennessey likely won’t get its hands on one until next year.
