Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Begins Production

Dodge’s 840 horsepower Challenger SRT Demon has officially started production. In fact, the first car destined to end up in the hands of a lucky consumer has already finished final assembly.

Despite production of the car commencing, deliveries to customers are still a few weeks off. Motor Authority has confirmed with Fiat-Chrysler representatives that the Demons will be held at the assembly plant for containment for an unknown amount of time. Containment of a new model at the start of production is not uncommon; FCA will likely use the opportunity to run quality checks on the Demon before it ships to dealerships.

FCA rightfully wants the quality on this car to be on-point. Challenger SRT Demon runs $86,090, making it one high-priced Dodge. However, that sticker price gains you a beastly two-door with 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque thanks to a 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 that features a huge ass supercharger.

In addition to the high price, Demon buyers also have to sign a waiver limiting FCA’s liability associated with a car that has more capability than just about any other street-legal car.
