Demon, rumored to be 1023hp with 100 octane, 815hp on pump gas

can't wait for 7:30PM tomorrow, any MSRP guesses?

Shot in the dark, but I will go with $95,000 CAD base; 3k for the 1000hp capabilty, and a few extras here and there.

And yeah dealers will play the 15-20k markup game, ( just like the hellcat, gt350, RS), and then give it a year or two and then dealers with revert to playing ball with pricing.

Also I think tons of money is going to be made for Mopar, selling kits to hellcat owners to make them demons a couple years down the line.


Many will bag on FCA for putting out a car like this, but I love it. I did not think something like this would be sold when Fiat picked up Chrysler of the trash heap in 08.

Also is worth mentioning, FCA had masterclass marketing efforts with the build up of this car; although the material was a tad cheeseball, they had most/all auto publications eating up everything they put out

Most buyers will hold on to it as a collector's.

Every little thing FCA puts out about the demon ends up on every auto news site everywhere. They're doing a good job with this one. Won't ever replace the Viper in my heart though...

I want to see them put this up on the worlds greatest drag race.. #6 (the most latest) the used one of the hosts hellcat and it placed 8th out of 12, not impressed - lets see if the demon is more than just a tire killer.

Demon is illegal for NHRA competition...

"The car is capable of a sub-10-second quarter-mile time both on racing fuel and 91-octane pump gas. Cars that fast are required by the NHRA to have a full, certified roll cage, and the Demon doesn't."

Meh...not impressed. Where is the rumored 1000 hp? So much hype

It is 840 on 100 octane gas while Hellcat is 707 on pump gas. Hellcat costs half as much and is less than 0.5 sec slower.

Isn't Hellcat around 3.9 to 60. This one is supposedly able to do it in 2.3-2.6, which is hypercar territory. There is alot more to it than just hp bump. Hellcat would probably be enough for most people though.
