Watch Dodge Give Birth to the Last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
It’s a sad day for some, but there are surely better things to come!by Robert Moore, on
It’s been less than a month since the final Dodge Challenger SRT Demon rolled off the line and now that you’ve seen the pictures, it’s time to see the video that shows it being built.
The video was released by FCA North America and shows various stages of the final Demon as it creeps through the production line. Throughout the video, you get to see it transform from a mere shell to the car we’ve all grown to love…or loathe. This specific model comes off the line looking as black as the nights sky but will be sent off for a special (and exclusive) Viper Red paint finish before it heads off to an auction where it’s expected to pull in some $2 mill based on the $1.65 million that the first Hellcat model pulled in. Of course, it could go for even more than that as it’s being auctioned off as part of a package deal with its sports car cousin, the Dodge Viper – the very last Dodge Viper at that.
As the final production model, it will get a pair of exclusive drag tires, a front passenger seat, rear seat delete, truck carpet kit, car cover, VIN badge, and a Demon Authentication package. Naturally, it will get the Demon Crate too, which comes with the drag wheels, tuned PCM, and a full set of track tools. As a reminder, this track-ready monster comes with 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque, enough for it to blow most supercars away with a sprint to 60 mph coming in just 2.3 seconds. It can also hit the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph – a standing record for any production car.
This car, and the final production Dodge Viper, will be auctioned off at the Barret-Jackson Northeast Auction between June 20 and June 23 with all proceeds heading straight to United Way. Stay tuned to find out how much the final Demon goes for and, until then, check out the video and gallery below!
