From Las Vegas: Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170

From Las Vegas: Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170

Today is the day! After months of nail-biting, Dodge has announced the final “Last Call” model to commemorate the Hemi’s ride into the sunset. After months of waiting, tempered by online teasers that were more head-scratching than jaw-dropping, here we are the moment.

Well, what’s all the fuss about? 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 Announced. It’s the only street-legal drag car that runs on ethanol (170 elixir, hence the name), but that doesn’t mean you can’t go to Costco to fill it up, because this Challenger can handle Texas tea, too. Here are the stats:

  • 1025 horsepower
  • 945 lb-ft of torque
  • 0-60 in 1.66 seconds
  • NHRA-certified ET 8.9 seconds at 151 mph
  • Base price $96,666
  • The NHRA has already banned it
  • A parachute is available as an option from Direct Connection

An eight-second production car? It is the fastest, fastest and most powerful production vehicle in the world. (There’s no word on how fast it’ll run on E10 pump gas, but output is 900 horsepower and 810 lb-ft of torque.) The 3.0-liter supercharger pushes down to 21.3 psi. Cylinder pressure up to 2500 psi. New drive shaft. Revised transbrake (aka “TransBrake 2.0”). New offset carbon wheel option wrapped in custom Mickey Thompson ET Street R radials. New Widebody flares (rear only). Only 3,000 are expected to be made for the Yanks and another 300 for the Canucks. Sorry, Sultans, none for you!

The Black Ghost, both the original and Last Call editions.

The 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 joins the swarm of other limited-edition half-engine Last Call goodness to show the world what good old American horsepower is all about. This is no shade of the 1970s where performance was the swan song, mind you – this is a celebration of a culture that has been in the making since the 1940s from the dry lakes of California to the hills of suburban Detroit. Uncle Sam, your car has arrived and it bears the names of two brothers who started building cars in Hamtramck in 1914, and the DNA of the cars that won 1-2-3 at Daytona in 1964, the Scat Pack vehicles that ran from 1968- was unveiled in 2006, and the 2006 concept car that introduced Chrysler still has mojo after leading the company’s rebirth with the Viper and Ram.

Last Call Dodge Charger Super Bee
