If you were one of the few 3,300 lucky enthusiasts who got their hands on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, you made the right decision as more units of the model will not be produced. Of course, for those who have their hearts set on the special car, buying a second-hand used car version can always be an option if one of the original owners is willing to sell their used car in Abu Dhabi.
Demon Will Not Be Refreshed For 2019
Tim Kuniskis, the re-appointed head of FCA passenger cars, has confirmed that no new units of the 2018 Dodge Demon will be made. Kuniskis believes that if the company makes more units, the people who spent a lot of money on the serialized car will not be happy. If the Demon is renewed for 2019, the company might be slapped with a lawsuit, as the car was meant as an exclusive offering and was considered a collectables item.
New Models Can Spark Legal Trouble For The Company
After all, the 3,300 Demon buyers got a letter congratulating them for being one of the only few people that will ever own this car and it only makes sense for the automaker to stay true to its words. Moreover, it will also avoid legal trouble this way. For those looking for an alternative, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye might be a good idea. The car has a 797-horsepower engine, which isn’t that different from Demon’s standard 808 horsepower engine. The specced-out model has an 840 hp engine.
Dodge Charger SRT Demon Is Not Coming Either
Kuniskis also confirmed that the Dodge Charger SRT Demon is not in the pipeline. However, some aspects of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will continue to live on, which is obviously good news. Some of the components will be used in the next-gen Challenger, which, however, is not expected to arrive any time soon.
Demon Is Truly A Collector’s Dream
No production Challenger churns out as much horsepower as the Dodge Demon and it also has the highest horsepower of any production V8 in history. Of all the production cars, it also has the fastest quarter-mile time at 9.65 seconds. It goes from a standstill to 60mph in just 2.3 seconds, which again is remarkable and record-breaking.
The Demon started at $84,995 but you can find it online in the neighbourhood of $100,000 – $130,000, which just goes on to show how insanely popular it has proven to be. And now that it has been confirmed that production levels will remain at 3,300, we can expect the value to appreciate even further.
