When the Dodge Demon arrived with 808 horsepower and the ability to pull wheelies from the factory, we collectively asked ourselves what was coming next from Dodge. It didn’t take the automaker long to roll out yet another 800+ horsepower muscle car, by way of the Challenger SRT Super Stock. While Dodge doesn’t like people comparing the two drag-racing muscle cars with one another, they’ve given us yet another reason to do so. According to a new report from MotorTrend, the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is even more rare than the Demon.
In order to help preserve the legendary status of the Demon, FCA limited its production run to just 3,300 units. The Super Stock, which is based on the Redeye model, was never intended to have a limited production figure. Dodge has said that they will build as many of these 807 horsepower cars as people are willing to buy. This is why the company will prevent Super Stock owners from buying and fitting Demon parts however, as they want to keep the Demon unique. That said, a spokesperson told MotorTrend that the company will only build around 200 examples of the SRT Super Stock for the 2020 model year.
Now, it is important to note that this isn’t the result of a change of heart within FCA. Once production of the 2021 model year starts, Dodge will crank out as many of these drag racing machines as they can. The company simply wanted to get a smaller batch of cars done this year after the coronavirus pandemic pushed back production across the industry. However, we are certain that this isn’t going to stop owners from feeling as if they have a future collectible.
If you planned on getting a 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock this year, you might struggle to secure a build slot. That said, you also won’t have to wait too long before they become a staple at your local dealership. You won’t get to apply for the Dodge Power Dollars discount however, which is a shame in itself.
