The hardcore halo car coming from Dodge has a price now – and we’re almost willing to forget they’re asking you to buy a car that uses a platform from 2008.
FCA has a different approach to the muscle car segment – instead of bringing a new generation to the market like Ford and Chevrolet did with the Mustang and Camaro, they chose to refine the Challenger to the point you can buy the most powerful series production car in the world. Hard to argue with that from the Demon perspective. To be honest, even the Challenger AWD seems like something to grab – since none of the competitors have a rivaling option. Back to the Demon at hand – Dodge has revealed the world’s fastest quarter-mile production car as certified by the National Hot Rod Association will cost serious money under $100k. To be more precise, the “entry” Demon is $84,995 – it even includes a $1,700 gas guzzler tax, while the $1,095 destination charge being an extra you are compelled to pay.
Dodge is making the deal even sweeter – which is somewhat incredible for a halo car that usually should have options that double its price. A host of “desirable options” – such as a cloth passenger seat, cloth or leather rear seat, trunk carpeting, but most importantly the Demon Crate are all available for a single Washington green. Dodge tells us the latter alone has materials worth $6,140 in parts and tools. As a reminder, the included range from skinny drag-spec front wheels and tires, conical air filter, two valve stems, a passenger mirror block-off plate, a replacement instrument panel switch with the high-octane button to the performance PCM that is key to having the Demon’s 840 horsepower. There are also options – this time for serious cash – that make the Demon an actual daily usable car. We’re just not going to talk about them… we want the Demon to be as hard core as it can be.
