Last 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Reaches Finish Line for Charity
It’s the end of the line for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
Destined for charity greatness, employees at the FCA US Brampton Assembly Plant located in Ontario, Canada, assembled the last SRT Demon yesterday. The fierce model along with the 2017 Dodge Viper “hand-built American supercar” is expected to set horsepower history and auction records. Both vehicles will be showcased as “The Ultimate Last Chance” end-of-an-era offer in the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction in Uncasville, Connecticut, scheduled for June 20 – 23. Funds raised from this powerhouse pair will be extended to the United Way.

“The winning bidder takes home a combined 1,485 horsepower: the 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon — the industry’s first and only purpose-built, street-legal production drag car with the most powerful production V-8 engine and 20-plus industry-first, drag-performance features — and the 645-horsepower Dodge Viper with an 8.4L V-10 engine, aerospace-grade lightweight carbon fiber body, iconic side exhaust and massive 14-inch wide rear tires,” said FCA in a press release.
Only 3,300 units of the Challenger SRT Demon were manufactured, and the charity-bound Demon will receive even more distinctive characteristics before settling on the much-anticipated auction block.
“The last 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will travel to an upfit center for its final stages of assembly, which includes adding a hand-painted exclusive Viper Red exterior color, 18-inch aluminum wheels, 18-inch Demon drag radial tires, Demon vehicle badging and a one-of-a-kind VIN instrument panel badging,” said FCA.

The to-be auctioned off 2017 Dodge Viper features black Alcantara leather seats, Viper Red exterior accented with carbon fiber details, and “an exclusive VIN instrument panel badge and authentication kit.”
This isn’t the first time Dodge//SRT have joined forces with the charity; in 2014, a unique 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat earned a staggering amount — $1.65 million.
