The Challenger already looked the goods as a muscle car, but the Demon really takes it to the next level with the flares, wide wheels and giant bonnet scoop.

For the road, the Demon has crazy wide 315/40 Nitto NT05R tyres with 18-inch alloy wheels. They are 12.6 inches (320mm) wide, and have a 15 percent larger contact patch and twice the grip of the Hellcat's tyres.

The Demon is available as single seater, although buyers can option the car up with a front passenger seat, or both a front passenger seat and a rear bench. The Challenger Hellcat has four seats as standard. The stripped out Demon weighs around 200 lb (90kg) less than the Hellcat.

The Demon's engine is based on the 6.2-litre supercharged V8 from the Hellcat, but it now produces 808hp (603kW) and 770 lb-ft (1,044Nm). If you use 100 octane fuel, power jumps to 840hp (626kW). The Hellcat has a mere 707hp (527kW) and 650 lb-ft (881Nm) to its name.

Guinness World Records has confirmed the Demon is the first production car with front-wheel lift at launch. The wheelie takes place over a distance of 2.92ft (890mm). Despite the Demon being seemingly built for the drag strip, it's been banned by the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association).
