2018 Dodge Demons are readily available for purchase

by Patrick Rall on

When the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon went on sale back in 2017, it didn’t take long for all 3,300 units slated for consumer purchase to be ordered. Most were ordered by actual customers and some were ordered by dealerships or representatives of the dealership, but for the most part, it was not easy to find an available allocation during the ordering process. It was even harder to find one without a huge dealership markup, so many people who wanted to buy a 2018 Demon were unable to do so.

Some of those units ordered by dealerships or representatives went into dealer stock with huge markups and early on, the few Demons available for sale still carried huge prices. However, over the course of the past year, more and more 2018 Demons have come up for sale in the used market. Some are being sold on auction sites, some have been sold at collector’s auctions and others have been sold through social media, but with so many listed for sale, prices have slowly crept down.

As prices have dropped, those folks who bought a Demon with the plan of flipping it for a quick buck have hurried to get the car listed for sale while they are still demanding a premium price over MSRP. That has led to more new or nearly-new Demons on the market, which has led to a continued downward spiral of selling prices. Mind you, many of the 2018 Demons being sold are still bringing a price well above MSRP, with many cars selling the range of $125,000 after having an MSRP in the range of $85,000. In other words, the 2018 Demon is still selling for well over MSRP, but with a little searching, you can find one for closer to $100,000 from a private seller.

In fact, if you are ready to buy now, there is a chance that you could score a used Demon for under $100,000. Ron Silva is one of the best-known owners in the Demon community and since getting his car, Silva has been one of the most active racers of the monster muscle car. Silva has run a best time of 9.55 at 143.2 miles per hour with only a few basic changes, all of which are listed in his eBay posting (click here for a closer look on Silva’s car).

 

If you are looking for a Demon with a few less miles and a few less track passes, the owner of Demon #1331 is also selling his Mopar muscle car. Listed on Facebook for just $100,000, this car comes with extra wheels and tires, along with a few key upgrades, such as a Per4Mance Development differential brace and paint protection (click here for a look at Nelson’s car).

Or perhaps you want a 2018 Demon with some serious historical provenance and you are willing to pay a little more. If that is the case, you can buy 201 Demon VIN #0043, which was built specifically for Richard Petty. It comes with Petty’s autograph in a few places on the car, as well as pictures of the NASCAR legend taking delivery of the car (click here for a look at Petty’s car).

These are just a few of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demons currently available for sale. There are more than a dozen more on eBay and they occasionally pop up on Bring-A-Trailer. Right now, one is available on BAT but in the past year, several others have sold with prices ranging from $97,000 to $114,000.

While buying a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon right now will still require you to pay more than MSRP, careful shopping could get you into one for right around $100,000, if not in the high $90,000 range.
