The Hellcat and the Camaro have been competitors in one way or another since their release, but this Demon is going to be a game changer. There’s no denying the fact that it will give Chevrolet a run for its money– but, don’t worry, we have a solution– the Fireball Camaro.
The Dodge Demon and the Fireball 900 Camaro.
You may remember some great news from those at Fireball Performance Cars a while back, as their 900-horsepower Camaro claimed the title of the first sixth-gen SS to break into the 10s then, after a few more modifications, the 9s. (A 9.8-second quarter mile pass at a whopping 137.92 mph, to be exact.) But, the team didn’t stop there. About a year later, now supercharged and nitrous-injected, the 1,100-horsepower beast is running a 9.006 quarter mile. In fact, the team is hoping to go 8s soon (stay tuned for the full feature when it does).
The upgraded version still sports the original 8-speed automatic transmission and is only available from a single dealership, Eskridge Chevrolet in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Even the standard 900-horsepower version of the Fireball Camaro wears quite the price tag, though. At $90,000, it seems steep, but when you think of it as a street-legal Camaro with more power than most supercars, it actually doesn’t seem too bad.
Sure– there’s still a lot we don’t know about Dodge’s newest creation –including its price point. Our Mopar guru here at the office is expecting MSRP to be somewhere around 75 to $80,000. But if there is one thing that is for sure, we are super anxious to get some actual details about this Demon.
