Dodge’s Hellcat is one of those cars that is totally pointless. Well, that’s not true. Its point it to make a metric shit ton of power and that’s it. So what do you do with a car who’s sole purpose is to make power and melt tires? Give t more power right?
That’s what I believe we’re seeing with the announcement from Dodge today. We have no details other than this cheesy teaser video below. It’s got all the makings of a “check out our more powerful car” teaser: dark videography, transmogrification, Inception like ominous tones and music. The animation and acting leave a lot to be desired, but come on this isn’t a Hollywood quality piece we’re talking about.
The teaser shows us an animated Hellcat ready for a drag race. It then eats a can of questionable, green “fuel,” and morphs into the Demon.
It’s pretty clear that this is just a Hellcat with more power. So why do we think this is the case? That’s pretty simple.
Uhhhhh, It’s Called The Demon.
When you name a car “The Demon” you can bet your sweet ass it’s going to make power. A lot of power. You already have a car with 707 horsepower in the Hellcat. This is also teased at the start with the Hellcat animation. I’m not sure what other conclusions you can come to after watching that.
Dodge said to go to the website www.ifyouknowyouknow.com for more information. There you will find more teasers about the Demon. According to the final video release date, it will be unveiled at the 2017 New York International Auto Show. We will be there LIVE to show you the car as it’s shown to the world for the first time.
Personally, I think this thing is Dodge’s response to seeing so many Teslas slaying Hellcats at the drag strip. Let’s see what Dodge has in store this spring. Dodge, if you’re reading this, we want to drive it. Let’s make that happen shall we?
