Now before you say anything or act as surprised, Dodge did say that the Demon wll be 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat, and you can use all the materials you want, it just isn’t that easy losing 200 pounds, and from all that we know, the SRT Demon won’t be a super expensive Hypercar, so the possibility of heavy carbon fiber use is out of the question.
So the best bet would be removing the seats, and the extra parts that a car might do without. This is what a report from autoblog says about the car:
The SRT Demon also has unique 18-by-11 inch wheels, which are 16 pounds lighter than the Hellcat’s, a manual scope/telescopic steering, which loses four pounds, and an 18-pound loss thanks to removing 23 noise, vibration, and harshness parts (the Demon will not by a quiet car, to say the least). Another 20 pounds is lost thanks to removing the trunk trim and spare tire.
However most of the weight is reduced by removing the passenger seats and the rear seats, 113 pounds to be more exact. This might sound like impossible, but Dodge did send an email by approving the one seater Demon. We have a feeling that Dodge will enter into a whole new category, and we cant wait to see it in action.
