With prices for HEMI-powered 2023 Dodge Charger and Challenger models continue to skyrocket, a number of rare-built 2022 models have been popping up on various automotive auction sites. It seems that some 2022 owners are looking to take advantage of the situation, as some dealers have been charging up to $50,000 on certain HELLCAT Redeye and Jailbreak models.
So who can blame them?
While surfing BringATrailer.com, we stumbled across this stunning 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock with only 18 miles on the odometer.For those who are familiar with the SRT Super Stock, it is currently the world’s quickest and most powerful muscle car.
Back in 2018, the American performance brand launched the outrageous 840 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the fastest production mile quarter-mile car in the world. The Challenger SRT Demon bent a lot of rules from other automakers and even though the Demon was only a limited production run of 3,300 units for the United States and Canada, its DNA still lives on in the Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
The Challenger SRT Super Stock continues the legacy of the limited edition 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon by offering a package very close to the Demons (sans the 840 horsepower high-octane mode, Transbrake, and SRT “Drag Mode” setting in the Uconnect system).
The SRT Super Stock is powered by the same supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® high-output V-8 engine as the Demon and its Redeye brethren and delivering 807 horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque on pump gas. Did you catch that? 807 horsepower on pump gas! If that sounds familiar, that’s because the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was rated at 808 horsepower and 717 lb.-ft. of torque on Premium 91 octane gasoline. It’s a clever way to keep the Demon owners feeling special.
It took the Direct Connection Controller from the optional Demon crate and unleaded 100 octane fuel to get the Demon to 840 horsepower and 770 lb.-ft. of torque. And just like the Demon, the SRT Super Stock runs the TorqueFlite 8HP90 8-speed automatic transmission and 3.09 gear ratio too.
The Challenger SRT Super Stock is standard with the Challenger’s Widebody kit. This allows for the Super Stock to run on the same sticky 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R drag radials at all four corners as the Demon. Of course, the Nitto’s are wrapped around lightweight 18-inch-by-11-inch wheels that were found on the Demon.
Challenger SRT Super Stock comes with the same uniquely tuned Bilstein high-performance Adaptive Damping Suspension (ADS) as the Demon, helping to shift as much weight as possible to the rear tires at launch for maximum traction.
Although the “Drag” mode feature is gone from the Demon, it has been renamed “Track” mode instead. The drive mode settings on the Challenger SRT Super Stock include Auto (Street) Mode, which sets the Bilstein ADS for a comfortable ride with compliant handling, Sport mode, Track mode, and Custom mode, which lets the driver select between Auto, Sport, and Track mode configurations for the transmission, paddle shifters, traction, suspension, and steering.
When Track mode is activated on the Challenger SRT Super Stock, the front Bilstein shocks are set for firm compression and soft rebound damping just as Drag mode did on the Demon, while the rear Bilstein shocks are set for firm compression and firm rebound damping. That configuration is maintained as long as the car runs at wide-open throttle. When the driver backs off the gas pedal, the system switches to soft compression and firm rebound, both front and rear, for improved handling. And just like Drag mode, during Track mode, the traction control system is disabled to enable the rear wheels to spin for a burnout, but the electronic stability control system remains engaged to help the driver with straight-line performance.
And although you can’t order the Demon’s crate with its unique set of tools, narrow front runners (tires), or the Direct Connection Controller, there are several aftermarket ways to tune a Redeye to get the power level from the Demon or even more. Dodge’s own Direct Connection parts catalog allows a SRT Super Stock owner to achieve 885 horsepower on pump gas! With aftermarket companies producing Demon replica hoods, it could be vary easy to build a Demon clone these days.
This particular car is finished in the beautiful IndiGo Blue and features the Satin Black Graphics Package, which gives the car a Satin Black hood, roof, and trunk lid. The only other options are a Power Sunroof and the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation. The ditches the fancy leather seats found in most SRT Super Stock models and proudly wears Houndstooth cloth SRT seats.
The window sticker shows initial delivery to Auto Land CDJR of Accident, Maryland, and lists factory colors, standard features, options, and a total price of $96,220. Manufacturer’s literature, vehicle shipping order forms, and three remote keys (two Red, one Black) are included in the sale.
Bidding will continue until Thursday, February 16th at 3:33 p.m. EST. With the current prices for 2023 models and the only difference between the 2022 and 2023 models being the “Last Call” plaque under the hood, someone might be able to get a better deal on a used 2022 model rather than the current run.
