Dodge has recently started accepting orders for the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, which is claimed to be the fastest, most powerful, and quickest factory muscle car in the United States. The car boasts a remarkable 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb.-ft. of torque on E85 fuel and can cover the 1/4-mile trap in an NHRA-certified 8.91 seconds at 151.17 mph. It is also the world’s first-ever 8-second factory muscle car and the seventh and final special edition vehicle in the “Last Call” series from Dodge.
However, the U.S. dealer portal crashed or became overloaded on the first day of orders, and many dealers were unable to place orders. Nonetheless, U.S. dealers managed to successfully order the new Demon 170 throughout the day on Tuesday. On the other hand, Canadian dealers were informed of the allocations available for the Demon 170 on DodgeGarage.com, but it is still unclear whether they can place orders.
Once a customer can find a dealer with an available allocation, they must contact the dealer directly to discuss a potential order. All customer orders must be received before May 15th, 2023, along with a notarized customer acknowledgment letter. Orders sold at MSRP will receive priority scheduling.
The suggested retail price for the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is $96,666, not including destination and fees. The series production volume is limited to no more than 3,300 units, with 3,000 for the U.S. market and 300 for Canada, with actual volumes depending on production capacity and component availability.
Customers who currently own an original 2018 Challenger SRT Demon and purchase the new Demon 170 will be offered a unique opportunity to match the last four digits of the VIN of their new car with their original 2018 Demon, enabling the Demon instrument panel badging to match their original car. Customers must sign a customer letter acknowledging the Demon 170’s unique performance features, parts, systems, and capabilities, similar to the original Demon.
Additionally, the purchase of a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 offers owners the chance to attend a one-day SRT Experience class at Radford Racing School, the official high-performance driving school of Dodge//SRT. The course provides owners with an opportunity to learn about the capabilities of their cars and to enhance their driving skills.
Enthusiasts who want to experience the thrill of owning the world’s fastest, most powerful, and quickest factory muscle car can place their orders now and be among the few to experience this exhilarating ride.
