New Dodge Demon to get debut next month

The Dodge Demon Roadster concept car will be debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the automaker has announced.

According to Dodge, which is part of the Chrysler group, the new model is a "compact, nimble, two-seat rear-wheel drive roadster with attitude".

This car has been designed to combine the American brand’s values of strong design and powerful performance with a "fun to drive" attitude.

Dodge’s reputation and heritage have been preserved in the exterior design of the car, with the signature crosshair grille, "muscular" lines, 19-inch aluminium wheels and aggressively styled headlamps.

Under the bonnet will be a 2.4-litre petrol engine, offering 172 horsepower at 6,000rpm.

Peter Lambert, managing director of the Chrysler group, said: "You might think that American cars always have to be big – but with the Hornet concept and now the Demon Roadster, Dodge has rewritten the rules for cool American car design.

"The Dodge Demon gives a taste for a potential future roadster that could sit alongside the Caliber and the Nitro and Avenger cars that we will launch later this year."
