Someone here once posted that if you show up at a car show with a Corvette, you win a trophy.
Now we know why.
@Squatch info on pricing so you can order yours
Dodge couldn't help itself when deciding on pricing for the Demon, which carries a base price of $96,666 (get it?), before destination fees and the gas-guzzler tax are accounted for. Add $1595 for shipping, and the $2100 gas-guzzler tax brings the actual base price of the new Demon to $100,361.
If you recoiled at the thought of spending $100,000 on a Challenger, you probably aren't alone, but the new Demon makes up for the high price with a four-figure horsepower rating and the necessary chops to go racing. Dodge did a lot of tinkering with the Hellcat during production, and accidentally blew up seven engines, according to CEO Tim Kuniskis. The work paid off, with the new Demon making 1025 horsepower and 945 pound-feet of torque in the correct setup. Freeing up the full capability of the Demon 170 requires a mixture of E85 flex fuel, but the Demon produces an impressive 900 horsepower and 810 pound-feet on standard pump gasoline.
Despite carrying such a large price tag, the Demon 170 has options. Just like the old Demon, the 170 comes standard with a single, cloth-covered driver's seat. Adding a passenger seat in the former ran $1. The car we sat in ahead of its reveal had two front bucket seats, both covered in available nappa leather, while the rest of the interior mirrored every other standard Hellcat Challenger.
An $11,495 set of aluminum and carbon-fiber wheels is available. The upgraded wheels share the same design as the standard set but save a combined 25 pounds. We know that Dodge has a street-tire package available as well, but we don't have pricing for it.
Production is scheduled to begin this July, and will be limited to some figure under 3300. Dodge hopes to build up to 3000 for the U.S. and 300 for Canada before production ends on December 31.
I'm hearing these are selling fast for $125,000 to $150,000 over sticker.
Chrysler dealers have a real history of doing that shit. Other models they pulled that with: Viper, Prowler, and though it's friggin' comical to think about now, the lowly PT Cruiser. Stupid stealerships. 😠
Just cause it's different.....
