Presenting the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, a true newborn in the automotive world. With less than 30 miles (48 km) on the odometer and still clad in factory plastic, this Demon has yet to feel the warmth of human hands on its steering wheel, save for those of assembly line workers (assuming they wore gloves).

But the pressing question remains: Will this pristine powerhouse find a buyer, or will it remain secluded in a garage, a victim of the Demon’s current market status? Enthusiasts adore the Demon 170 for good reason. Its 6.2-liter HEMI engine, coupled with a 3.0-liter supercharger and the right E85 mix, churns out a formidable 1,025 horsepower (1,040 ps/765 kW) and 945 pound-feet (1,281 Nm) of torque.

On the track, these numbers translate to a blistering 1.66-second 0-60 mph sprint and a certified 8.91-second quarter-mile time. Dodge boasts about its record-breaking g-force acceleration, reaching a staggering 2.004 Gs.

Only 3,300 units of the Demon 170 will grace the roads, with 300 allocated to Canada. Initially priced at $96,666, the current market tells a different story. Listed for $199,900, with no financing options available (at least for now), potential buyers face a hefty price tag.

Recent examples include a 26-mile Demon rejected for $160,000, previously purchased for $124,441, and a Massachusetts dealership declining $165,000 for a 21-mile 1,025-hp Challenger.

Thus, the question lingers: Can this Demon command $200,000, or will the seller incur losses? While steep for an upgraded SRT Hellcat, its drag-strip prowess promises endless excitement, especially when pitted against an electric counterpart like the Lucid Sapphire.
