If you stay up-to-date with automotive news, chances are you’ve heard of the upcoming Dodge Demon. Said to make the Hellcat look weak, the Demon is rumored to be extremely lightweight and push upwards of 700 horsepower, maybe even to all fours.
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.
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.
