After all of the buildup and hype, the time has finally come: The 840-horsepower drag-strip monster also known as the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon starts shipping to dealerships today.

The Demon's initial run will be limited to 3,300 cars (3,000 here in the U.S. and 300 for our neighbors to the north in Canada), so if interested, you'll have to move fast. Dodge also announced a wider range of options and accessories for the Demon from a variety of vendors.
The two options available from Dodge come at the same cost of the Demon's other options: $1. And if it were up to me, I'd snag both because they're worth much more.
Demon Authentication Package
The first item is the Demon Authentication Package. It adds the car's 12 build sheets, which detail the vehicle's assembly, and a carbon-fiber "Certicard" with the owner's name, vehicle identification number, serial number and options codes printed on it. It also comes with a handy portfolio to keep all of the vehicle's documents safe.
Also available for a buck is the Demon Crate, again, personalized with the owner's name, VIN and serial number. The crate itself — which fits into the trunk of the Demon — holds various performance parts and tools, including a performance powertrain control module, narrow front-runner drag wheels, conical performance air filter, and a set of track-day tools such as a jack, torque wrench and fender cover.
Mopar will offer a rear-seat delete package that allows owners who opted for rear seats to remove them. The package includes a closeout panel, lower seat tray with a cargo net, and a packaging shelf.
Demon Street Tire Package
Additionally, Mopar will offer a Demon Street Tire Package for those who want to keep the drag radials for the track only. The wheels are 20-by-11-inch "Devil's Rim" wheels, which are the stock wheel for the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody.
Other Devilishly Fun Stuff
Also available are a Speedlogix four-point harness bar (which requires a rear-seat delete) and an exclusive Demon VBOX Video HD2 system by Racelogic. The system will record video as well as various data points like acceleration times, accelerator and brake use, gear selection, vehicle speed, G-forces from launch and wheel slip.
