Hype: Everything You Need To Know About The Dodge Demon (Gallery)

So, last night the mysterious Dodge Demon was finally revealed to the world in an event that can only be described as invincibly American.  There were explosions, CGI robot cats, fire, burn outs, Vin Diesel, Jack Nicholson quotes, the whole nine!  Also, as you might imagine, there was a ton of info revealed about the car.  Horsepower, 0-60 time, quarter mile time, and tons more.  The only thing not revealed was the MSRP or the release date which will probably be made public when the car makes its second debut at the New York Auto Show this week.

The official press release for the Dodge Demon is also freakin’ massive so I’m going to do something different this time.  There is so much important information that me trying to sum it all up in a short blog post just isn’t going to do the car justice.  Instead I’m just going to give you three things: first the full video of the Dodge Demon reveal, below that will be all (there are many) the important bullet point items for the Dodge Demon.  Finally, below that will be a gallery of over 100 of all the official pictures.  By the time you’re done with all of that you should know everything you need to know about the Dodge Demon (well, besides the price).  You’re welcome!
