Voracious 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Priced at $86,090
Dodge has revealed that its 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will have a starting suggested retail price of $86,090 (including gas guzzler tax and fees) when it reaches showrooms this summer. Production of the performance brand’s most powerful, street-legal midsize sporty car will be limited to 3,000 serialized copies for the U.S. market and 300 for Canada, Dodge has announced.
For racing enthusiasts and collectors, a perk with purchase of this athletic beast is a full day of training on the track at the Bob Bondurant School of High-Performance Driving in Chandler, AZ. A custom, leather-bound Track Tech Manual is also included for collectors. Dodge also says insurance for this super beast will be offered to buyers through Hagerty Insurance.
Lots of firsts are attached to this muscle car monster, which Dodge claims is the first factory vehicle equipped with only a driver’s seat. For $1 extra each, buyers can purchase a front passenger seat, rear cloth or leather seat, and a Demon trunk carpet kit.
Demon Crate components, valued at over $6,000, also cost $1 and include drag wheels, performance air filter, and track tools to help unleash 840 horsepower and 770 lb.-ft. of torque at the strip or race oval. The engine, matched with the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, normally produces 808 horsepower and 717 lb.-ft. of torque. The Challenger SRT Demon’s 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 engine also has been certified by the National Hot Rod Association to complete a quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at a speed of 140 mph. Dodge claims that 0-60 acceleration is 2.3 seconds, and that the new Demon can achive 1.8g on the skidpad.
This high-end performance car comes with Dodge’s largest functional hood scoop, special cooling systems, sport tuning, and adaptive damping suspension, plus a Brembo performance brake system. The cabin features dark-brushed accents and a flat-bottom SRT Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and paddle shifters. Track-ready radial tires and aluminum wheels are part of the package, as are Demon logo fender badges and a numbered dash plaque. The new muscle car will come in 15 exterior paint colors and will be available with other trim packages and upgrades.
