Today’s "it" muscle car isn’t scheduled to be delivered to its owners until the fall of this year

If you’re sweating on the possibility of missing out on the Dodge Challenger Demon because of its limited availability — only 3,300 units will be made in the first production run — you can save yourselves the trouble by taking up the offer of a well-rated eBay seller. Of course, doing so does come with a bagful of caveats, chief among them is the guy’s asking price of $250,000 and the fact that paying that much money for a car that you can probably still get if you did all the legwork has “don’t do it!” written all over it.

That said, props to the seller too for his enterprising way of making money. He still doesn’t technically have the Challenger Demon he’s selling because deliveries for the car aren’t expected until the fall of this year. He admits as much as too, saying that whoever takes him up on his $250,000 asking price can have options included if he “purchases before the order date.” Otherwise, the buyer will have to settle for a Demon with the options that the seller choices. So it’s up to any of you if you want to take up this offer. Dodge hasn’t said if the $85,000 Challenger Demon is sold out, but with interest in the muscle car going through the roof, it’s only a matter of time before all 3,300 units are accounted for. When that happens, you might have no other choice but to take this more expensive route.

Good luck to anybody who’s gonna get into this transaction

He still doesn’t technically have the Challenger Demon he’s selling because deliveries for the car aren’t expected until the fall of this year.

I’m not above disrespecting somebody else’s hustle but there is something about this offer that’s screaming for me to run away from it. For one, I’m not going to pay $250,000 for a muscle car when there might still be a possibility to get one for a third of its price. If it means putting in the work myself, then that’s what I’m going to do. What I won’t do is spend the difference between this guy’s asking price and the actual selling price of the Challenger Demon by sitting around and let somebody else do the work for me.

More importantly, I’m not spending that much money on a car that the seller does’t even have in his possession. Even if I did take him up on his offer, I’d have to wait another four months to get the car, maybe even more if he takes delivery and then ships it to me. Nothing about this offer sounds appealing in any way, but I do have to give it up to the seller for going out on the longest limb he can possibly see. If he does end up finding a buyer, then more power to both dudes.

But I won’t be that buyer and I’m pretty sure most people probably feel the same way because ultimately, this kind of transaction is a question of trust and mathematics. The math itself already doesn’t add up and from a personal point of view, it’s hard to have some trust in someone who I don’t know personally and is asking for this much money for a car that can probably still be had for a third of the price he’s looking for.

Good luck to both sides if a transaction does happen. Here’s to everyone getting what they want, cost notwithstanding.
