Dodge Challenger SRT Demon’s Custom Crate Needs An Exorcism

With two days to go until the 10th installment of the Challenger SRT Demon’s teasing campaign goes official, Dodge has released a few details on the car’s custom crate.

Developed in collaboration with Snap-On Business Solutions, the tools can optimize the muscle car for street, drag strip, and anywhere in-between.

Offered as a special, limited production set, it includes a hydraulic floor jack, cordless impact wrench with charger, torque wrench, tire pressure gauge, fender cover, and tool back, all of them being branded with the Demon logo.

These come crated with “a dozen more parts”, as Dodge says, including the Demon Track Pack System, Direct Connection Performance Parts and special wheels with the Demon head logo.

Details surrounding the car’s actual output are still unknown, but we could be looking at 757 horses, as the time-stamp on the performance screen revealed in a previous teaser proves to be an actual Easter Egg, making the Demon 50hp more powerful than the Hellcat.

Dodge will shed more light on the case starting with April 11, when the vehicle is scheduled to make its world debut at the 2017 New York Auto Show.

    Okay, so this looks like a track prep kit, but I’ll ask the obvious question…where would you put this? In the trunk? What would be the point of prepping the car for the track and then drive it on public roads? Either way, I think this is a cool idea and appreciate Dodge for doing it.

      Can you explain what specific tool(s) shown here are used just for ‘track prep’?

      Does using a tyre pressure gauge make the car unsafe for the road? I don’t understand your comment at all.

    Man, some of those items look like they have “Made in China” written all over it.

    Too bad they didn’t include the rest of the tools you’re gonna need to fix this car when it breaks down.

    This might be a sign of how much it’s going to break down.

    Merchandizing…because FCA couldn’t make enough to break even for the Demon’s R&D costs, they have to sell lots of branded junk. Perfect for that display case at the dealership parts counter, right next to the huge collection of brand logo ball caps.
