Final Dodge Challenger Demon rolls off the factory floor
It was only a matter of time, but the Demon was not long for this world. After first breaking out during the 2017 New York International Auto Show, Dodge SRT has officially built the last Challenger Demon at the FCA Brampton Assembly in Ontario, Canada.
To make the final Demon look more special, the company will bring it to an upfit center. There, the Demon will receive a hand-painted Viper Red exterior, 18-inch aluminum wheels with drag-radial tires and a one-of-a-kind VIN badging.
But don't expect the last Demon to hit a showroom any time soon. Both it and the last 2017 Dodge Viper will be auctioned off as a pair in the company's 'The Ultimate Last Chance'. Set to appear at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction from June 20 – 23, one lucky bidder will take home a combined 1,505 PS of pure American Muscle.
In review, Dodge SRT only produced 3,300 examples of the Demon for one model year. It packs a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 that produces a whopping 851 PS and 1044 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the fifth-generation Dodge Viper is powered by an 8.4-liter naturally-aspirated V10 that cranks out 650 PS and 814 Nm of torque.
Dodge SRT has no plans of making another Demon in the future. However, the Viper will apparently rise again and could come with a smaller but equally powerful all-aluminum V8. It is expected that the sixth-generation Viper will make its debut some time in 2020 or 2021.
