Miss Your Chance At A Demon? There’s A Factory-Fresh Pair Up For Auction

With the introduction of the new Hellcat Redeye, Dodge is offering a  Challenger that’s (arguably) 99% as demonic as the Demon, but for fifteen grand less – and without the production cap.

That’s bound to make many muscle fans very happy indeed. But strictly speaking, the Demon is still the most powerful version ever offered. Unfortunately, with all 3,300 examples now completed, it’s off the market. So if you’re hell-bent on still getting one, you’ll need to turn to the second-hand market.

Fortunately there’s not one, but two examples of the Demon coming up for auction. They’re still practically factory-fresh, and they’re being sold as a pair at Mecum Auctions‘ upcoming sale in Monterey.

Build numbers 1,142 and 1,045 are both done up in red with black interiors, the only major difference between them being the blacked-out hood, roof, and decklid on the latter. They both still have the dealer plastic in place, and are only showing 77 and 43 miles on their respective odometers.

Of course, like any other Demons, they both pack Mopar’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, kicking out 808 horsepower on ordinary pump fuel or as much as 840 horsepower (on 100-octane racing fuel). Even weighing over 4,000 pounds, they’ll run to 60 in 2.3 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 9.65 – even quicker than the 797-hp Redeye that’ll do the same in 3.4 and 10.8.

The Demon, in short, is still king of the proverbial hill when it comes to muscle cars and straight-line acceleration. And this may be your best chance at buying one, let alone two: one to keep and one to drive. Or one for you and one for the missus. Either way, the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa will be the place to be on August 23-25.
