The Last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Headed To Auction.
Dodge built the last of its 808 hp Challenger SRT Demons this week, ending the run of the most powerful muscle car ever made. You can officially say the Demon is Dead.
When it was shown to the public last year, Dodge promised it would limit production to just 3,000 for U.S. sale and an additional 300 more for Canada. It stuck to the plan, despite an influx demand for the $86,000 coupe. Since demand is so high, there has been dealer markups of double that and more.
The Demon has the title of being both the most powerful production car ever built by a major American automaker and the quickest production car in the world, with a certified quarter-mile time of 9.65 seconds.
The Demon’s 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 is an evolvement of the 707 HP engine in the Challenger SRT Hellcat, which is still available. A special kit allows the Demon’s motor to run on 100 octane fuel and produce up to 840 hp.
It comes standard with just a driver’s seat. The drag racing-style transmission brake is a production car that helps it achieve its record-setting performance. This is so drivers can build up engine speed while the car is standing still.
The last Demon won’t be available for long. Dodge is auctioning it off and the last Dodge Viper ever made at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction in June. All proceeds from the sale will be going to United Way.Categories: Blog
