Here’s something you don’t see everyday: there is currently a Dodge Challenger Demon for sale in Norway. The muscle car is listed for sale with Norwegian Machinery, and the listing was first found by Motor1. While any Demon for sale is notable, the price and location of this one makes it very unique.
Let’s start with that price. It’s currently for sale at 2,690,000 Norwegian Krones (NOK), which converts to about $286,000. Dodge Challenger Demons have been known to command premiums over their $84,995 base price when new, most on the used market fall between $130,000-$150,000. That’s over a $100,000 increase over any Dodge Demon with similar mileage here in the ‘States It’s even more crazy when you consider the new Dodge Challenger Super Stock is coming at an even lower price with close to Demon performance.
This is mainly because of Norway’s heavy taxing on new cars. There are multiple tiers car buyers must factor in when purchasing a new vehicle. Unsurprisingly, the Demon doesn’t fare well in the horsepower, CO2 emissions, and NOx emission-based taxes. Considering all of this, we’re surprised the Demon is even legal in a place that’s so oppressive to those looking to own anything with more than four cylinders.
And even at this price, the Dodge Challenger Demon has got to be a pretty desirable vehicle in not only Norway, but the whole of Europe. Dodge never sold the drag-special Challenger in Europe, so someone must have found a way to import this model from the U.S. Whoever buys it will have one of the rarest cars on the continent.
This particular Dodge Challenger Demon has just over 3,000 miles on the odometer, and looks to be in practically brand new condition with the front splitter guard still attached. The white muscle car is also offered with a five year warranty. That’s a little strange considering Dodge doesn’t have a European dealer network, but the future owner will surely appreciate it. We also hope the seller has the 18 inch black wheels with drag radials. It’s not that the aftermarket gold wheels look bad, they’re just not very “Demon” spec.
