the 808-hp dodge challenger srt demon was sent back to hell and has been out of production for some time now, although dodge did just announce the 807-hp challenger srt super stock—it's never done with high-horsepower charger and challenger variants. however, speedkore performance group in wisconsin got its hands on five demons and replaced the factory steel body panels with carbon fiber, and one of them is currently for sale on our sister site bring a trailer.
this lightweight demon was reportedly used as a test vehicle to develop carbon-fiber components for the dodge challenger widebody, and speedkore used its own autoclave to replace the demon's factory steel body with carbon fiber. the carbon-fiber body panels reduce the car's weight by about 200 pounds, and it has hood pins installed on the carbon-fiber hood, which also has a factory-style air-grabber scoop to send loads of air into the 2.7-liter supercharger.
unlike speedkore's 1525-hp twin-turbo all-wheel-drive dodge charger, which is powered by a modified demon engine, the company didn't touch this demon's powertrain. that is a supercharged 6.2-liter hemi v-8 that spins up 808 horsepower and 717 lb-ft of torque, and when installed with a special ecu, that engine is good for 840 ponies. dodge claims the demon is good for a lightning quick 9.65-second quarter-mile at 140 mph, but keep in mind that's under near-perfect conditions.
you can't currently buy a new challenger srt demon, but this 200-mile carbon-fiber example from speedkore is as close as you can get—and more. but you'd better act fast because it’ll be sold in six days. currently bidding is at $90,000, but it won’t stay there: after all, the starting price of a production demon was $86,390, and another example of the carbon-fiber version by speedkore went for $170,000 in texas earlier this year.
