    2018 dodge challenger demon hellcat exhaust note sound war

    Get ready for a true muscle car battle!  It’s the 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody versus the 2018 Dodge Demon. Which one of the big HEMI V8s sound better? This is the exhaust note war!

    In one corner is the new 2018 Hellcat Widebody. It’s a Challenger Hellcat with the Demon body kit. It means it has wider wheel flares to accommodate wider tires. It also has a new electrically assisted power steering and enough grip to gain speed in the corners and break into the 10 second 1/4 mile time range. Under the hood is still the same 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8 that produces 707 horsepower.

    In the other corner is the all-new Dodge Demon. This is a unique beast with a thoroughly reworked 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8. It uses a bigger supercharger and many more tricks to produce up to 840 horsepower when running on 100-octane racing fuel.

    We will be driving and reviewing these bad ass muscle cars. The first day got rained out, but it did not stop us from having some fun and revving these beasts to see which one sounds meaner.

    Check it out in this quick little video and let us know which engine sound you like more.

    1. According to my little computer speakers, I like the Hellcat note better.
      Maybe in person the deeper Demon note is better.

    2. Oh look it’s another high hp challenger that’ll get killed at the track by a Honda Civic because it weighs as much as a f250 lol not a ford guy but the gt350 is a better package price per hp jus my opinion

      1. Your probably right. But the Challenger is just cooler hands down and sales numbers quantify this. It’s the only true muscle car today. Ford and chev have appeared to vacate the muscle car theme and evolve in to other markets. Challenger ownes this segment.

        1. You’re either joking or choking, I’ve loved the Challenger for DECADES before they brought it back from the dead, but to basically say the Mustang (best selling muscle car in the world) & Camaro (bad ass machine in its own right) don’t much going for them is ASININE

    3. Your video mislabels the cars. White one is Demon, orange is Hellcat.

      Personally I like the Demon exhaust better, don’t really like the supercharger whine from either.

      I would have to say the 5.2L Voodoo is even better sounding though it doesn’t come close in power

      And if I’m being totally honest, my number one choice in engine sounds is going to be a fox body 5.0 with 40-series flowmasters and open dumps. It barely makes 25% as much power on it’s best day but it has an amazing intake roar (especially when converted to single plane carburetor) and a low rpm exhaust drone that would nearly blow out your eardrums. I vote sound over performance

      1. It doesn’t label them incorrectly. If you look at the beginning in the first orange car, there is a hellcat logo on the grill. The demon does not have the hellcat logo on the grill. I was confused at first as well due to the color. He looks at three cars, not just the two shown at the start and end of the video. The orange is a hellcat automatic, whereas the white is the hellcat with a standard transmission.

    4. My 2014 Challenger SRT8 with Zoomers sound throatier and deeper than the whining sound. But I do plan on getting either one in a couple of years.
