Dodge Challenger Demon Priced at $84,995
Plus an $1,100 destination fee and all the singles you’ll be dropping for the ‘optional’ performance bits.
Dodge announced in a press release Tuesday that its drag-ready-yet-streetable, 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger will start at $84,995. That's the price you'll have to pay if you want the most unreasonably batshit, new, American production car on sale in 2017.
On top of the $85,000 sticker, a destination fee of $1,095 will be tacked on, and owners will also be asked to be $1 for each of the extra performance bits. The $1,700 gas guzzler tax is included in the MSRP.
Those additional "options," as Dodge calls them, include a front passenger seat, a rear seat, trunk carpet, and the $1 "Demon Crate." Here's what comes with that.
- "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"
The car also comes with a factory warranty for three years or 36,000 miles for limited coverage, and a five-year, 60,000-mile warranty on its powertrain.
“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," said FCA's passenger cars chief, Tim Kuniskis, in a press release.
The Challenger Demon was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in April. It's a drag-race-ready street car that comes ready to push 840 hp from its supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine when using race fuel. At its unveiled, Dodge claimed that the car could run a 9.65-second quarter mile at 140 miles per hour and do 0-60 in 2.3 seconds—or 2.1 seconds if you're really good.
The Demon will be available from Dodge dealers in the fall.
