The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been teased again this week, with new reports out of the US suggesting the stripped-down drag special may only have a seat for the driver.

In the latest installment of the Demon's web video series through Dodge's YouTube channel, dubbed 'Body', the Challenger SRT Demon can be seen performing a serious burnout.

An accompanying release from parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) confirms the Demon will have a wide-body, and 'Demon Branded' 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R tyres front and rear, specifically designed and developed for this model - the first factory production car with drag radials.

Wrapped inside the dragstrip-biased rubber will be 18x11-inch lightweight alloy wheels.

The US's Motor Trend claims the Challenger SRT Demon will only come standard with a driver's seat to save weight, with the other three passenger seats available as an option, saving 113 pounds (51kg).

FCA has already confirmed the Demon will weigh 200 pounds (91kg) less than the already-brutal Challenger SRT Hellcat, though it's unknown whether the pair of hot rods will share the same engine - the Hellcat features a manic 527kW/880Nm 6.2-litre supercharged V8 under the bonnet.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be revealed at this year's New York motor show in April.

Stay tuned for more updates in the lead-up to the Demon's reveal in the coming months.
