US prices for the maddest, baddest Dodge announced. And options for just one dollar

For the princely sum of $84,995, you can bag yourself a brand new, 808bhp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Yup, that Demon – the one that is the most unhinged production muscle car the world has seen.

That’s more than $20k over the already quite unhinged Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. But - ready your finest Trading Places impression – here’s the kicker. For just one dollar, you can option the ‘Demon Crate’ option, and because it’s only one dollar (though worth $6,410), you really want to.

Open said crate, and you get two narrow front wheels, a performance ECU with high-octane fuel calibration, a replacement instrument panel, a personalised ID badge, a performance air filter, two valve stems, and passenger mirror block off plates.

Then you get tools: a hydraulic floor jack, cordless impact wrench with charger, a torque wrench, tyre pressure gauge and a tool bag.

Apply these things to your shiny new Demon, and you’ll unlock the 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V8’s full 840bhp and 770lb ft of torque, allowing you – where applicable of course – to replicate the Demon’s Guinness World Record certified ability to do a front-wheel-lift. Yup, it’s a muscle car that wheelies. Sort of.

There’s more bargain option goodness. The Demon only comes with a front driver’s seat, but if you want to bring a friend along for in-flight entertainment, their seat will only cost you… one dollar. Leather on the rear seat and a boot carpet? Both $1 options.

Amazing, right? Dodge admits that $85k is “a lot of money and a significant up-charge over a Challenger Hellcat,” but that the Demon bears not just performance, but features, and exclusivity too (it’s being built in limited numbers).

About that performance. Your $84,996 (because you want the full 840bhp, naturally) gives you a car capable of 0-30mph in one second, 0-60mph in 2.3secs, a quarter-mile time of 9.65secs at 140mph (as certified by the National Hot Rod Association), the ability to pull 1.8g, and of course, WHEELIES.

Production of the Demon begins this summer, with deliveries to SRT dealers later in the year. For the full story on the Demon, click here
