In March, Dodge made waves by unveiling its highly anticipated limited edition vehicle, the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, marking the brand’s final “Last Call” model. This extraordinary vehicle is equipped with a powerful all-new supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® D-170 V8 engine, capable of delivering mind-blowing performance.
With 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb.-ft. of torque on E85 fuel, the Demon 170 can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a staggering 1.66 seconds. Even on E10 fuel, the D-170 motor still achieves an impressive 900 horsepower and 810 lb.-ft. of torque, showcasing its exceptional engineering.
The automotive world was taken by storm when it was revealed that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 could conquer the quarter-mile in an NHRA-certified 8.91 seconds @ 151.17 mph. However, this feat led to a setback for Dodge, as they received a violation letter and faced a ban from the NHRA due to the car’s ability to achieve a sub-nine-second quarter-mile without the mandatory safety cage and parachute.
Unfortunately, acquiring one of the coveted 3,300 units promised for North America has proven to be a challenge, as dealerships have been imposing exorbitant markups, and demand for the Demon 170 has been overwhelming.
Exciting news has now emerged from Barrett-Jackson, as they have announced that a 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 will be auctioned at their upcoming event in Las Vegas.
