Final Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and Viper Sell for $1 Million
Dodge is officially closing the chapter on two muscle cars, the Challenger SRT Demon and Viper. The final Demon and Viper sold as a pair at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction last weekend for $1 million.
The Demon ended production at the Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada this May. Available for a single model year, the Demon was available in limited numbers, with 3,000 copies for the U.S. and 300 for Canada. The Viper was hand-built in Michigan at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant that closed last August. In 2016, Dodge had sold only 630 copies.
After leaving their respective factories, the two final models received a matching paint job called Viper Red. The final Viper commemorates the first-generation Viper RT/10 with its red exterior and black interior, which includes black Alcantara leather seats. The model also features carbon fiber accents on the exterior and a unique VIN badge on the instrument panel.

With the two cars, Dodge auctioned off a total of 1,485 hp. The Demon has the power advantage, offering 840 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque from its 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8. The Viper packs a 8.4-liter V-10 rated at 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
The $1 million selling price was the highest during the four-day Barrett-Jackson auction at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. All proceeds from the sale of the two cars benefit the United Way.
