The latest video born of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon teaser saga boasts a “Demon Crate” â€” a box that comes with 18 components, including parts, spare wheels, a mysterious “Demon Track Pack System,” and tools emblazoned with the Demon logo.
Since we now know how the Demon shed its weight, what extra customization could the “Crate” bring?
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles claims the personalized box will let customers choose whether the vehicle is set up for straight-line times or street performance.
“It’s not intended for a road course; rather, each customer can decide at the time of order, or once they own the car, or even on a moment’s notice that they want their car to favor street performance, drag strip performance or something in between,” FCA said in a release.
The box will have a personalized badge displaying the owner’s name, the car’s serial number, as well as the VIN.
There is some speculation that there is a not-so-hidden message in the photo FCA released of the nameplate.
CNETÂ suggests that the “0757” serial number denotes that the Demon will produce 757 horsepower, a 50 hp bump from the Hellcat’s 707 horses. This is certainly believable, especially considering the name of the “owner.” Tom Coddington was one of the founding fathers of Dodge/Chrysler drag racing and a member of the original Ramchargers.
FCA plans to trickle bits of information to us every week until the Demon’s launch in April, so the vehicle’s mysteries won’t remain unknown for long.[Images: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles]
