Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario has built its very last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which will be auctioned as a package deal with the final production Dodge Viper next month at Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast auction event. Whoever places the winning bid will be taking home close to 1,500 horsepower, packed under the sculpted hoods of two very special now-discontinued Dodge performance cars.
The final production Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, currently black, is now set to travel to an upfit center for final assembly. That will include the installation of 18-inch alloy wheels with Demon drag radial tires, Demon badging, one-of-a-kind instrument panel VIN badging, and most important of all, a hand-painted Viper Red exterior color, to match the Viper it’s to be sold alongside. True to its word, Dodge has kept production of the Demon limited to just 3,300 examples, which were pumped out over the course of a single year.
Upfitting at a separate location after production was a necessity for each and every SRT Demon produced – not just this final example – as incredibly, the model’s wheels are actually too wide to fit the tracks on the Brampton assembly line.
The final production Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and Dodge Viper will auction on June 23rd to raise money for United Way. Speaking of the Viper, rumor has it that the iconic sportscar could live again, albeit with two fewer cylinders under the bonnet. We’ll be following that story closely as it develops.
