Final 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon built

Final 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon built

The last Demon is set to be auctioned alongside the final Viper

The last vehicle in a run of 3,300 Dodge Challenger SRT Demons has been built, rolling off the production line on May 30.

Though appearing in black in the images release by Dodge to mark the occasion, the car is said to be on its way to be modified into Demon-spec.

This means it’ll be hand-painted in Viper Red, given 18-inch aluminium wheels, Demon drag radial tyres, Demon badging, and VIN instrument panel badging.

To make the most of its final Demon, Dodge plans to pair it up with another ‘last’ in the form of the final Dodge Viper to roll off the production line.

These two cars will head to the next Barret-Jackson auction held in Uncasville, Connecticut, between June 20 and June 23.

In an unusual move, the cars will both be auctioned off at once, so one bidder will go home the owner of the ‘lasts’ of two Dodge performance models.

Between the two cars, with the Demon producing 626kW from its 6.2-litre supercharged Hellcat V8 and the Viper’s massive 8.4-litre V10 pumping out 481kW, a total of 1107kW is up for grabs.

Given the prices other special Dodges have collected at auctions, it’s hard to predict what these two cars will sell for.

“Over the years, Barrett-Jackson has reached incredible milestones with Dodge,” says CEO of Barrett-Jackson Craig Jackson, “including the sale of a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (VIN 001) that raised $1.65 million at our 2014 Las Vegas Auction to benefit Opportunity Village Foundation.”

The final Viper was built to resemble the first-gen version of the car, adding an extra layer of muscle car nostalgia to the car, and likely pushing up what will already be a massive final price.
