Dodge’s craziest, most powerful Challenger is finally in production after a long and exciting debut! The very first customer car rolled off the line earlier this week. These cars aren’t quite on their way to their owners yet: deliveries for these first production cars will start after a brief containment at the plant. After that, we should start to see the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in broad daylight!
Only 3,000 Demons are planned in the US, and another 300 in Canada. These supercharged monsters have created a lot of hype this past year, and for good reason. Recently, automotive journalists and critics flew out to test-drive the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon on its home turf: the drag strip. Judging by the blogs that followed, everyone was duly impressed and very excited by their sub-10-second quarter-mile blitz.
Initially, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has to roll off the assembly line on 18×11-inch aluminum wheels. By the time customers get them, though, they’ll be fitted with the proper Nitto NT05R 315/40s, which are actually too large to roll through Dodge’s standard assembly line. Those rear wheels put down up to 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque from the supercharged 6.2L V8.
Dodge is rolling out its halo car in a strict order, trying to keep dealership markups down. Plus, any prospective Demon owner who wants their 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in B5 Blue will have to wait a few months for a later build run. These drag-strip monsters start at $86,090 including the destination fee, so it’s lucky that options like the rear and passenger seat can be added for only a dollar.
