The most powerful Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has rolled off the line. The 840-horsepower beast was part of a limited run that ended Wednesday at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada.
The company planned to complete production at 3,300 Demons. The final 2018 Demon is moving to an upfit center for a Viper Red paint job. Other Demon reaches to final touches and will be auctioned as a pair with the last 2017 Dodge Viper.
They will be launched later this month at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction in Uncasville. Profits will go to raise funds for United Way, Fiat Chrysler said. Challenger SRT Demon is a limited edition car that’s so oriented toward the track it hasn’t come with front passenger or back seats.
The car is supplied with a supercharged 6.2 liter Hemi Demon V-8, an even hotter version of the same basic engine the powers the Dodge’s 707-horsepower Hellcats. The Demon was designed to make more shoppers into Dodge dealerships. As because big production volume can be great.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon can cover zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.3 seconds. It can go from zero to 100 mph in 5.1 seconds. The car is so powerful that it is capable of pulling its front wheels off the ground.
“We’ll sell more Hellcats as a result of having a Demon,” said Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat Chrysler’s passenger cars, when the car was introduced as part of the 2017 New York Auto Show. “That is just how it works.”
