Earlier today, Dodge released a video revealing that its upcoming Challenger SRT Demon will come with a crate filled with all sorts of extra go-fast parts.

Notably, the serial number is listed as "0757," which we think represents the Demon's horsepower figure.

The other details here are worth exploring too. Tom Coddington is , a group of engineers that took their cars drag racing, helping Dodge establish itself as a muscle car brand. The VIN 001121 is a little more mysterious, though. At first, we thought it was the Demon's 1/4-mile time–11.21 seconds–but considering the regular Hellcat runs the 1/4-mile in 11.2 seconds, we're not so sure.
We'll see the Demon in April at this year's New York Auto Show where all will be revealed. It should be .
