Drag strips around the United States and Canada best brace themselves; the very first 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon rolled off the assembly line this week.
Motor Authority reports the first production Dodge Challenger Demon was produced earlier this week, as confirmed by an FCA spokesperson. Other than the production confirmation, FCA didn’t provide any other details on color or build specifications.
Although production has officially begun, customers who have been eagerly awaiting their own Dodge Challenger Demon will likely have to wait a little while longer. FCA said customer deliveries will take place following “containment at the plant.” Translation: FCA will keep the Demon cooped up just a little while longer.
When it is unleashed, customers will be treated to 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque from its 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 engine. FCA has said it will prioritize builds that are sold at the MSRP of $86,090, including destination, as a way to prevent dealers from price gouging the muscle car. However, dealers have already found loopholes to ensure their pockets are lined.
