He's being held in a secret underground bunker outside Auburn Hills until such time as the Widebody plans are fully revealed by Tim K and his exile can be lifted.

Seriously, not a lot known but did read something saying Widebody would be speed limited to 186 mph, the tire rating. Sounds like BS but Demon will be limited to 168 mph so guess it's possible.

The blue wheels and 275 tires just for assembly line and shipping, dealer to install the correct 20x11 wheels and 305/35-20 tires and send the blue ones back to Brampton. Demon apparently will be treated the same way (see the Granite Crystal Demon below).

I read that the demon is speed limited because of the street legal drag tires. The Hellcat WB is getting larger 20" performance tires and wont be speed limited like the regular Hellcat.

Here's an article about the wheels being to wide for assembly line and where the wide wheels and tires are swapped.

Good deal Hal, I've been by SRT before (not inside, I wish!), always cool cars going in and out of there, even found a twin to my car.
