Inside the Demon press kits

by Patrick Rall on

The press kit for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is a small metal box with the Demon’s 3D supercharger badge on the lid.

On the underside of the lid is a serial number plate which looks like the Demon Crate serial plate, except it reads “New York International Auto Show” with the date 11-21-16 (the day that the Demon set the production car record with a 9.65 ET) and the serial number of each press kit out of 1121. Mine is #986.

Inside of the metal box is a small Demon head logo flash drive and a handful of collectable cards with Demon information.

Several of the cards have teaser images on one side and on the other side, there is an explanation of the mystery number shown in the picture. There is also a timeslip from the 9.65 run, a small scale Guinness record certificate and the letter from the NHRA stating that the Demon is banned from competition.

The press kit box came in a black canvas bag with the Demon logo and it included a gray Demon t-shirt and a black Demon hat.

While the chance to get one for free was only offered to those folks in attendance at the NYC reveal, there are a few ways for Demon lovers to score a press kit.

The “easiest” way is to pay the outrageous prices being asked (and received) on eBay, but with auctions for Demon press kits climbing well into the $700 range – buying on eBay is very expensive.

On the other hand, the racing group Team Hellcat is raffling off one of the Demon press kits and you can buy a ticket for just $10. On April 29th, someone from Team Hellcat will draw a name and that person will get a press kit from the Demon debut. Best of all, the proceeds from the Team Hellcat Demon press kit raffle go entirely to the Epilepsy Foundation.
