It’s not really a surprise that throwing a 840hp Challenger tuned for drag-racing into the market proves to be a legal concern, and Dodge wants to safeguard itself from potential misuse of the upcoming Demon.
Dodge will force all Demon buyers to sign an acknowledgement letter just to place an order, in a bid to make them understand the nature of their new beast.
Allpar got hold of the letter, revealing the terms Dodge puts for a customer to order a Demon.
The document is filled with several safety disclaimers: if the factory-installed passenger and rear seats are not in place, then you can’t carry people in the passenger spot or the rear; if you haven’t bought the passenger seat from the factory, then you should never attempt to install an aftermarket seat because it can’t be safely attached.
The letter goes on by saying that owners shouldn’t use any of the car’s “Track-Use” features on public roads and warns that the bespoke Nitto NT05R drag radial tires are not intended for highway use due to increased wear of the racing compound and are not recommended for wet weather conditions or in temperatures below 15 degrees F.
Dodge is also making sure that not only the potential Demon owner but also his/hers “personal representatives and heirs and next of kin” understand the Demon’s power and risks associated with it. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
