Summer is coming, and that means car enthusiasts will be taking their convertibles out for a ride soon. But today, we are not going to talk about convertibles that are currently out in the market.
Aksyonov Nikita, a Russian artist, recently posted a rendering he created on his Behance account. We have seen a number of renderings by this artist, and this time, he designed a topless Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - yup, a convertible.
Nikita has a pretty wild imagination, judging from all the designs we have seen from him. Now, his convertible SRT Demon here is designed with a soft top that folds flat behind the rear seats. Though it looks physically awesome, we feel like the SRT does not really need this feature considering its current speed. If you are not aware of the stats, the Demon is capable of reaching 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 2.3 seconds with its 840 horsepower engine, and has already been banned for on-road driving. If we take out the roof of the Demon, a huge portion of its weight will be cut, meaning that it will be able to reach a quarter of a mile in sub-10 seconds.
Nikita also rendered a number of colour combinations for the drag racer, from red, mustard yellow, to green and even purple, and that is not all we can expect from the artist. Just last week, he posted another design of the Demon wearing a police uniform, and it looks very good. Nevertheless, we believe that this will remain as just a rendering, as we doubt that we would see this in the real world. It’s too good to be true.
With all that aside, there’s still a lot of controversy when we talk about the Challenger Demon SRT. People are still arguing whether it should be road legal or not, and if it should just stay on the track. Well, what’s really important is that it should only be owned and driven by an experienced, and responsible car owner, who can handle the monster under its hood, even if the Demon has separate modes including drag and street that modifies engine output, transmission, steering, and brakes.
Furthermore, according to online sources, every person who buys a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will have one full day at Bob Bondurant School of High-performance driving in Chandler, Arizona, as part of the Dodge SRT package. This school was officially built by Dodge. The entry level SRT Demon will cost just under $100,000.
