Dodge Challenger Demon Tries On New Aftermarket Wheels For Size

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was something of an oddity in today’s automotive landscape, being a ridiculously powered, yet relatively affordable, coupe in a world choke full of SUVs.

FCA might have discontinued the Demon, but nevertheless it has made quite a name of itself by beating almost everything on four wheels that came its way.

And while some of its rivals have better sound systems of smartphone integration as optional extras, the Dodge Demon has something called the ‘Demon Crate‘. It adds drag radials, a hydraulic floor jack, torque wrench, fender cover and certain other goodies.

Fill its tank with 100 octane fuel, and you’ll see the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 produce a whopping 840 horses. This translates into a startling 2.3sec for the 0-60mph (0-96km/h) run, and 9.65 seconds to complete the quarter mile, at least according to Dodge.

The example displayed here isn’t sprinting like crazy over some drag strip. What it does is parading its new wheels, which were fitted by Vossen.

They measure 20×11 inches up front and 20×12 inches at the rear, have a brushed midnight smoke finish, and are called the M-X2. Taking a closer look on the company’s website reveals the M-X2 series with the ‘coming soon’ caption, while also revealing a total of 48 colors and different sizes, from 19- to 24-inch, available, along with a starting price of $1,700 each.

So, how does the Dodge Demon look like to you sitting on new rims – is it hot or not?

    It looks very nice. But I wouldn’t want it. The Demon is a car you lock away someplace and wait for it go up in value. I’d take a wide-body Hellcat thanks. [And you don’t have to put a bow on it or anything. Just hand me the keys!]

      So, Craig, you locking cars away? What part of the game is that?

      • Craig

        In my dreams. I’ve locked away lots of cars.

        • Alfa Giulia QV

          In my dreams, I have a car for each day of the year. Hell, I have a car for each time of day. One for the morning, one for the afternoon, and one for the evening. And that’s not even taking motorcycles into account.

          • Craig

            I’m jealous of your dreams!

  • UhhHuhh

    Vossen…lol

  • Alexandro Pietro

    Is it true that Mustang and Corvette are the same base?Both cars have something very sutil in common…

    • Matt

      Short answer: No.

    • Bo Hanan

      dafuq?

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      The Corvette is a very “subtle” Chevrolet and the Mustang is a very “subtle” Ford. That’s where there the commonality ends.

  • Alexandro Pietro

    The Corvette mid-engine will be on market just at the same time Foed GT retire,…Coincidence?

    • Matt

      Relevant to wheels on a Demon how?

  • Bo Hanan

    Wheels are to “dantie” for such a large/masculine car. And excellent car color by the way too.

    “Dodge Demon has something called the ‘Demon Crate‘. It adds drag radials, a hydraulic floor jack, torque wrench, fender cover and certain other goodies.”

    So that’s what they’re saying is its selling point? A box full of stuff you can get at Jeg’s?

    • Mill0048

      They only listed the silly Jegs-type stuff for some reason. The crate also includes drag front-wheels, another ECU with separate drag tune, air filter, mirror block off plate, and high octane button (for the interior).

      • Auf Wiedersehen

        Hmm. Why not just install all that from the factory?

        • Mill0048

          I’m not 100% sure, but if I may speculate they probably aren’t street legal or street friendly. The ECU & tune is for race fuel not pump gas, mirror delete might be considered dangerous, air filter may affect emissions, and the skinny drag radials affect handling on the street.

          • Auf Wiedersehen

            Well, to be fair. The car is made for and does one thing. Straight lines fast. It’s not like it had to be sold as street legal. With a selling price of $85k or more, it’s not like a regular guy will buy one to commute. It’s likely most if not all of these cars will be stored away to increase in value, the owners hope. And with the precarious nature of Dodge and Chrysler, they may vary well be the last of it’s kind.

          • Mill0048

            Agreed. But it is cool that it is street legal. And to be honest, I bet a good number of them will end up in storage as an ‘investment’ anyway. Seeing as how the less collectible Hellcat is nipping at it’s heels, it’s only a pulley and tune away from at least matching the HP rating of the Demon.

          • Auf Wiedersehen

            agreed!
