Plenty of Dodge Hellcat owners learned firsthand that having 707 horsepower at their disposal is probably too much for the road. With even more power, owners of the Dodge Demon will probably face a similar issue, which is where Bob Bondurant’s new drag racing course comes into play.

Plymouth Superbird Inspires Dodge Challenger Rendering 6

Dodge Challengers have grasped a good chunk of the internet these days, especially in Hellcat and Demon guises, unleashed on drag strips, but this rendering is truly something different.

Inspired by the iconic Plymouth Superbird of the 1970s, RainPrisk has imagined it with an almost identical front end and a gigantic rear wing. Moreover, this Dodge Challenger rendering has other mods too, such as the double-vented hood with quick-release, new front bumper with repositioned fog lamps, side exhaust tips, and a set of very special wheels.

For a car made four decades ago, the original Plymouth Superbird had an impressive amount of power: 425 horses, to be more precise, coming from a 7.0-liter supercharged HEMI V8.

Nowadays, the most extreme version of the Dodge Challenger almost doubles it, being good for 840hp in the range-topping Demon model, with race fuel in the tank and the powertrain control module. This allows it to sprint from naught to 60mph (96km/h) in just 2.3 seconds, or 3.2sec faster than the Superbird.

Now, if you’re interested in an unrestored Plymouth Superbird, then you should get ready to spend a huge chunk of cash on it, because these examples usually retail in the neighborhood of $200,000, while properly maintained ones tend to double that price. This makes the $84,995 starting price of a new Challenger SRT Demon seem like a bargain, doesn’t it?

Would You Pay $140k For A 2018 Dodge Demon Or Go For A Porsche 911 GT3? 6

While all numbers point to the Dodge Challenger Demon being an absolute monster on the drag strip, is one really worth an extra $55,000 over MSRP?

Before you answer, consider that $140,000 buys you a 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT S with some nice options, or a brand new Porsche 911 GT3.

Yet, the owner of this used Demon thinks $140,000 is a fair number, as the car has just 21 miles (33 km) on the clock and features all options, even the Demon Crate, bar the sunroof. The ad can be found on Craigslist and a brief look at the description reveals that this is model number #348 of 3300, and that it has been kept inside a garage.

Now, the Demon is a beast on the drag strip, but asking AMG GT-S or 911 GT3 money for it might be a bit too much.

Brand New Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Simply Owns The Drag Strip 5

Not many stock cars can brag about running the quarter mile in less than 10 seconds, or faster than early Bugatti Veyrons
but then again, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon isn’t your average machine.

First of all, it was developed on and for the drag strip, building upon the already mad Challenger SRT Hellcat, to which it adds a suite of modifications that make it the world’s fastest production car from 0 to 60mph (96km/h), according to Dodge.

However, in order to enjoy the full force of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, you need to fill the tank with race fuel and get the powertrain control module from the ‘Demon Crate‘, as only then it will produce the full 840 horsepower. Secondly, it needs to run on drag radials to make that front end go in the direction it’s intended to, but in the right conditions and with someone behind the wheel who knows what they’re doing, it reaches the 60mph (96km/h) mark in just 2.3sec.

Now, let’s see what the ultimate muscle car looks like on the drag strip pointed against a Camaro SS, a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Before checking out the video posted below, we should mention that this Demon was allegedly brand new during the runs, with only a few miles on the clock, and its tank was filled with 91-octane fuel, which limits its power to, well, “just” 808hp. It did run on drag radials, though, but was this enough to beat its rivals?

Dodge Demon Puts Down 724 RWHP On Pump Gas During Dyno Test 21

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Dodge, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Demon, Dodge Videos, Film, video on 12 21st, 2017


There’s a button inside the Dodge Challenger Demon that allows you to switch between regular pump gas and 100+ high-octane race fuel. The difference between the two should be noticeable.

Dodge said it themselves that if you fill up on high-octane fuel, you will see “big changes in elapsed time,” when it comes to the Demon – as if it wasn’t already as quick as a hypercar over a 1/4 mile.

In fact, if you’re running on pump gas, instead of 840 horses, you’ll be using just 808 at the crank, which is still great, but not optimal in the world of drag racing.

Now, it might interest you to know that this particular Demon, which we can only assume is completely stock, put down an impressive 724 RWHP on the dyno. In other words, over 830 HP at the crank. The best part is that it was using pump gas, which could mean that perhaps Dodge isn’t telling us the whole story with regards to how powerful the Demon really is.

That or the driveline loss is relatively small, somewhere around 10% – this of course being a… less fun to entertain scenario.

U.S. Dealer Asking $176k For Freshly-Delivered Dodge Demon 13

Priced from $84,995, the Dodge Challenger Demon seems like the bargain of the century, especially when you consider its straight-line performance. But, is it worth more than double the sticker price? We don’t think so.

Nonetheless, used car dealership Custom Cars West, located in Sheridan, Colorado, has listed a freshly-delivered Dodge Demon for sale at a rather absurd $176,398.

The car reportedly has just a single mile on the odometer and is bathed in a glistening shade dubbed B5 Blue Pearl. Inside, the interior is said to be covered in black leather but sadly, no images of the cabin have been published by the dealer.

Despite lacking some details and any high-resolution photos of the car, we can safely say that it isn’t worth over $175,000. In fact, a used Lamborghini Huracan can be purchased for a little over $190,000 and while it may not accelerate down a drag strip as quickly as the Demon, it is a far more well-rounded -not to mention, exotic too – performance car.

Nevertheless, with just 3,000 examples of the Demon destined for the United States, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this example changing hands for the asking price, no matter how excessive it is.
