If you’ve had your eye on the new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but haven’t been sure if your wallet will be as fond of the powerful muscle car, here’s your answer. The Dodge Demon will start at a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $84,995 (including $1,700 gas guzzler tax and excluding $1,095 destination). The Demon Crate and other options will be available to owners for $1.

“Eighty-five thousand dollars is not just a number in a business case to Dodge; we know it’s a lot of money and a significant up-charge over a Challenger Hellcat,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America. “We worked very hard to build as much value into the Challenger SRT Demon as possible – features, performance and exclusivity that simply can’t be duplicated with a goal of maintaining, and possibly even growing, as much future value as possible.”

 

The 2018 Dodge Demon claims an impressive number of records – it’s the first-ever production car to do a front-wheel lift, as certified by Guinness World Records, and is the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car with an elapsed time (ET) of 9.65 seconds at 140 miles per hour (mph), as certified by National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). It also registers the highest g-force (1.8 g) ever recorded at launch in a production car. It’s still a livable street car, but has been designed for great performance on the strip.

There are of course also optional upgrades for increased strip capability, or greater comfort on the street. The biggest of these is the Demon Crate, described below in detail:

  • Demon Crate ($1): Exclusive Demon Crate offers components that unleash the car’s 840 horsepower, 770 lb.-ft. of torque and full potential at the drag strip and is personalized with the buyer’s name, VIN and serial number. The Demon Crate and the performance parts it holds are valued at $6,140, but Challenger SRT Demon owners can buy the entire package for $1. Contents of the Demon Crate include:
    • Direct Connection Performance Parts:
      • Two narrow, front-runner drag wheels
      • Performance powertrain control module with high-octane engine calibration
      • Replacement instrument panel switch module with high-octane button
      • Personalized ID badge
      • Conical performance air filter
      • Two valve stems
      • Passenger mirror block-off plate
    • Demon-branded track tools:
      • Hydraulic floor jack with carrying bag
      • Cordless impact wrench with charger
      • Torque wrench with extension and socket
      • Tire pressure gauge
      • Fender cover
      • Tool bag
    • Foam case that fits into the Challenger SRT Demon trunk and securely holds the front runner wheels and track tools

Production of the 2018 Dodge Demon begins later this summer, and deliveries to Dodge/SRT dealers begin this fall.

    An $85K Fiat Demon? No thanks, for that kind of money I could build a street car that could run 8’s.

    • Roy T Bowman

      buy it for that put it straight in storage for a year. unload it at barret jackson and see what happens

      • Cobranut

        You may be right.

        I’m still kicking myself for not doing that back in 2004 when the Ford GT came out.

  • Dave Hoelcher

    Ya… spend $85,000 to build a street car that MAY run eights… ocassionaly…. between explosions… That you MAY be able to sell for $30,000 when you’re tired of working on it. There’s never been a car like the Demon available & may never be again. Which means it MAY be worth a million dollars later… That Fix Or Repair Daily mentality could insure car’s like these never see production…

  • Drew

    I could buy TWO Kawasaki H2’s that STILL wouldn’t be as high as the price for THIS cager,and the only thing this “Demon” would see of me,is my rear tail-lights!!!

  • USA Patriot

    Haters gonna hate……LOL
    Just be glad you live at a time that something like this exists

  • Mat Boonen

    I wish there was a $2 crate with a roll cage lol…

    • Cobranut

      That’s true. Can you even run a 9 second car without even having a rollbar or cage???

  • USMC 8th and I

    A fool and his money are easily parted……….
