Dodge Demon owners can breathe a sigh of relief. The 2020 SRT Super Stock Challenger won’t eat the devil’s lunch on the dredging track anytime soon. Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said Driving authority that the automaker would not sell the missing Demon parts to their cars to Super Stock owners, allowing the Demon to maintain its performance advantage throughout the quarter-mile.
Dodge unveiled the Challenger SRT Super Stock last week, offering non-demon customers a ton of demon goodies; however, the automaker does not give the entire kit. There is a reason why the Super Stock needs 10.5 seconds to cover a quarter of a mile which takes the Demon 9.9 seconds even though the two are using the same 6.2 liter supercharged V8 which produces 807 horsepower ( 601 kilowatts). The Demon can produce 840 hp (629 kW) with racing fuel, which the Super Stock cannot do.
There are also parts reserved for owners of demons by Dodge, such as the trans brake and the hood. Some of the demon’s hanging pieces are also left out. Kuniskis said Driving authority that the magic of the Demon resides in its unique suspension which allows maximum weight transfer to help launch the car and the trans brake which loads the engine. Then there are the parts that the two models share such as line lock, launch control, electric cooler and launch aid.
Even without all of the Demon’s parts, Super Stock is still fast. A sprint at 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) takes 3.3 seconds, although the top speed of the Super Stock is limited to 168 mph (270 km / h). It’s a bit low for such a powerful model. Its price will probably overshadow that of the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody which starts at $ 78,295. However, unlike the 3,300 production of the Demon, Dodge will not limit the production of Super Stock, keeping the Demon safely at the top of the Dodge performance hierarchy.
