Dodge just did a mic drop last week by revealing the fastest production car ever with the Challenger SRT Demon. Given the car has 830 horsepower from the factory, comes with skinny fronts to go drag racing with and has a factory tune to run on race fuel….everyone is assuming the worst on pricing. But Dodge is saying not to worry, because the Demon won’t cost six-figures.
Speaking with Road And Track, Head of Passenger Car Brands at Fiat Chrysler, Tim Kuniskis said Demon will be under six-figures when it goes on sale later this year. Instead, it will just cost more than the Hellcat version of the car, which is a bit like stating the obvious, but nice to know nonetheless.
Since the car’s headlining reveal last week in New York City, the rumor mill has been circulating heavily regarding the Demon price tag. Rumors have had it priced as high as $130,000, despite no official word on the price from FCA.
For reference, the Challenger SRT Hellcat starts at $64,195 with its 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8. So the Demon essentially has from $65,000 all the way to $99,000 to be priced, which is a pretty large range. If we were to speculated, it is likely the car will end up closer to $99,000 than $65, 000; mostly because FCA has already capped Demon production at 3,300 units.
