Dodge Demon Concept Goes on the Attack

It seems that one of the fastest growing segments of the automotive world is the affordable roadster, perhaps cashing in on all those baby boomers on the cusp of retiring, but want to have a sexy (empty nest) kind of ride. Dodge has just unveiled their Demon Concept, a two-seat convertible with a bit of an angry streak, marketed directly against the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, and Mazda MX-5.

Because it is yet another open top roadster in the DaimlerChrysler family, you’ve got to wonder if Dr. Z is ready to scrap the Crossfire. There are certain elements on the Demon that remind me a Nissan 350Z, other parts that make me think of a Honda S2000, but the part of the car that really sticks out is that ultra aggressive nose. It’s like it has a cross-hair in its teeth.

Principle designer Jae Chung says that “while the iconic Dodge Viper is a dream car for many, the Dodge Demon is designed to be an attainable dream car.” It’ll tip the scales at 2600 pounds and come equipped with a 2.4L engine good for 172hp and 165 lbs-ft of torque. An SRT version is likely in the works as well, likely getting around the 300hp mark.
