The Dodge Last Call Festival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was epic, with hundreds of Mopar Muscle enthusiasts attending to witness drag races, experience thrill rides, compete in racing simulators, check out unique displays, and even witness an impromptu air show coutesy of Nellis Air Force Base just next door. The finale, of course, was the debut of the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, which arrived via Kama K-MAX helicopter.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 Reveal
Luckily, if you couldn’t attend the reveal of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, it was streamed onto the Dodge YouTube channel, and the stream recording was saved, enabling you or anyone else to watch or rewatch the epic event whenever they happen to have the time. The reveal starts with some interviews regarding the assortment of special edition Last Call models available for customers to purchase and even has an appearance of, unsurprisingly, Jay Leno, who takes some time to talk about his collection of Dodge muscle cars and his love for the brand.
After the assortment of interviews, the unveiling finally begins at the 24-minute mark of the stream recording. We’ll refrain from saying too much here so you can watch it for yourselves, but words don’t do this car enough justice. Seeing and hearing will spark the love for the final send-off to the legendary Hemi V8-powered muscle cars on the market.
Why is the Dodge Last Call Challenger SRT Demon 170 so amazing? With a full tank of E85 fuel, the Demon 170 cranks out an incredible 1,025 horsepower and 945 lb-ft of torque to the ground from the factory. That’s more than twice the output of the new Ford Mustang Dark Horse. The legendary muscle car also shares some DNA with the epic Hellephant crate engine, specifically the 3.0L supercharger, which gives the vehicle a 40 percent increase in boost pressure, taking the Demon 170 to 21.3 psi compared to 15.3 psi for the Challenger Hellcat Redeye Widebody. What’s more? If you want over 1,000 ponies in a car, you’ll pay well over $100,000; meanwhile, the Challenger Demon 170 has an MSRP of $96,666 (excluding destination and fees).
