The last Demon has been built

by Patrick Rall on

FCA announced today that the final 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been built at the company’s plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Dodge announced last year that the Demon would be built for just one model year and for 2018, only 3,300 units would be built – with 3,000 for the US and 300 for Canada. Due to a fire during transportation and some quality control measures, sources that prefer to remain unnamed have told us that there were more than 3,300 made, with as many as 15 “extra” cars being built, but in the end, only 3,300 will be issued to buyers in the US and Canada and the last of those cars rolled off of the Brampton Assembly line earlier today.

The details on the final 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon are short, but we know that it is a black car with black interior and no sunroof. More importantly, we know that this car will be part of the unique charity auction during which the final Dodge Viper and the final Dodge Demon will be sold to the highest bidder via the “Ultimate Last Chance” program. These two unique high performance Mopar machines will be auctioned off on the weekend of June 20th with the proceeds (which are sure to reach well into the millions) going to the United Way.

While the last 2018 Dodge Demon built might have rolled off of the assembly line in black, it will be custom painted the same deep, metallic red that adorns the final Viper when it reaches the upfitting center. All of the Demons are shipped to the upfitter for things like the 18-inch wheels and drag radial tires, the stickers and the badges, but unlike the other cars that “only” get the hood, roof and trunk lid painted satin black (if those options have been chosen), the final Demon will be fully hand-painted in Viper Red – arguably making it the most unique of the 840-horsepower muscle cars.

We don’t know which serial number the final Demon has been assigned, but we believe that #0001 was taken, so we expect this final car to be wearing number 0666, 0840, 0965 or, of course, 3300. We do know that this car will receive “one of a kind instrument badging”, so it will be interesting to see which number Dodge saved for the final unit.

Again, this final Demon will be sold to the highest bidder at the June 20-23 Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction. The first Hellcat raised $1.65 million for charity, so with the final Demon being bundled with the final Viper, this package is likely to set all sorts of charity auto auction records.
