Everybody loves a good leak unless it’s a vacuum, water or gas leak. This leak, unlike those, is a good one that might tell us just how much horsepower the upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is packing.
Instagram account @thedarkestride claims that they have the actual power figures for the Demon and they are as follow:
- Power Mode 1: 757hp
- Power Mode 2: 815hp
- Power Mode 3 1023hp
We’re not exactly sure what these Power Modes are, but in their revealing Instagram post they go further into detail about the car. They note that in order to access all 1,023 horsepower, you’ll need to be running 100-octane or better fuel, have the Crate PCM that’s purchased separately for $3,000, and have Drag Mode initiated. The post also states that the car will be able to run 9-second quarter-mile sprints, while 8-second runs are possible with a “few modifications.”
This Instagram account also posted a picture which seems to be a photo of the Demon. In the photo, we see the wide fenders, large hood scoop and, of course, the Demon logo.
Dodge has yet to release the official numbers, to this information has not been confirmed. Stay with us for more information as it’s released.
The monster has finally broken cover. Here are the power figures: Power Mode 1: 757hp Power Mode 2: 815hp Power Mode 3 1023hp Now the last power Mode is achieved with only the following parameters in place: 1. Race Fuel: 100 octane or better 2. Crate PCM (crate purchased separately from the car for approximately $3,000) 3. Drag Mode Initiated, allowing higher RPM and broader power delivery in this drag mode… Car will break 9s stock and deep into 8s with few modifications just like the Hellcat has dipped into the 9s quite easily. Driving around town with 815hp from the 6.2L V8 is nuts. STOCK. @dodgeofficial has built a weapon of a car. Internals of the car have been significantly strengthened as is the biggest weakness of the Hellcat, the driveshaft. You will be able to push this car deep into 1000hp easily with the right modifications without the use of race fuel in power Mode 2, just how Hellcat owners have seen 1000whp with their cars. Dodge is one of those companies that listens to its customers and they have literally given us what we all want. I love my MOPAR vehicles just as much as my Italian exotics…..Mopar or no Car baby ????? UPDATE: I speculate something has happened internally at FCA and the above has been altered. The current horsepower numbers make no sense and deviate heavily from the previous marketing strategy.
