2018 Dodge Demon priced from $84,995, but many options are just $1. Nearly $85,000 may seem like quite an ask for Dodge, but it’s giving Demon owners a bit of a break — you can’t get anywhere near this kind of performance for the money elsewhere. And on top of that, the serialized Demon Crate, with all the drag-strip goodies you could ever want (including narrow front-runner wheels, a performance powertrain module that unleashes all 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque from that 6.2-liter V8 engine, and a bunch of tools to put it all together), will be available to Demon customers for just $1 (actual retail value: $6,140). It’s like underbidding everyone on “The Price is Right.”
The Demon comes from the factory with just a driver’s seat, but you can add a passenger and/or a rear seat for $1.
We finally saw what the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon looks like at the New York Auto Show this year, and now we know how much it will cost. For a paltry $84,995 (plus $1,095 for destination), you, too, can snatch up one of the 3,000 Demons coming to the United States. If history is any indication, there will most likely be markups when the Demon hits dealerships this fall, especially in Canada, where only 300 examples will be available.
For reference, while they’re more road-oriented than the Demon, a 2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat can be had starting from $64,195, while the latest Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R runs a cool $63,645. The Camaro ZL1, starts at $61,140, and its higher-performance 1LE variant starts at $69,995 including destination. However, none of these cars can touch the Demon for straight-line, quarter-mile supremacy, or even 0-60 mph prowess. To do that, you’re looking at something ridiculously modified.
