The Dodge Challenger Super Stock is also known as the “Demon lite” as it shares many components from the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon without race-focused upgrades. But despite the differences, it’s still a fast car, though not necessarily built for racing down the quarter-mile. That said, many fans might not know about the Challenger Super Stock, so here’s a trivia for the rare trim.
Dodge Challenger Super Stock: Did You Know?
According to Motortrend, the Dodge Challenger Super Stock is intended to be the master and commander of the open road and not a drag-specific muscle car. It does this by having an excellent price/performance ratio without paying extra attention to itself, though the widebody turns some heads. One thing that contributes to the Super Stock not drawing too much attention to itself is that it doesn’t have any unique badging. Instead, the only way to identify the car’s trim is by looking at the window sticker, the only place where the words “Super Stock” can be found on the car; once removed, nobody is the wiser.
In 2018 Dodge built 3,300 Demons, but interestingly, the Super Stock Challenger is even rarer than that, with just 190 units built in 2020, 559 in 2021, 571 in 2022, and around 207 in 2023, all of which are sold orders. That’s a total of just 1,527 cars over its four-year production run. The only Dodge Challenger rarer than that is the narrow-body Jailbreak Redeye, where just 29 have been built for 2023. So naturally, with the car’s rarity, you won’t be able to find one for the sticker price. If you have one, do your best to keep it secure.
Another interesting thing about the Challenger Super Stock is that its Nitto Tires have already been discontinued. The company has only made enough to equip the cars leaving the factory, so customers must opt for something different when it comes time to replace them. Additionally, the Super Stock’s wheels aren’t the same as the 2018 Demon’s, as they are finished in matte granite rather than a matte black like on the Demon. Another fun fact about the Super Stock Wheels is that they can be found on the 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee Last Call trim.
At the moment, there aren’t any Dodge Direct Connection Stage Kits available specifically for the 2018 Demon. However, it’s a different story for the Super Stock, which can get a power boost to 885 horsepower through Dodge Direct Connection. Though it’s nearly impossible to identify a Super Stock, we did mention the wheels, which would require a good eye to catch. Still, in addition to that, only a Super Stock would have the wheels and the dual-scoop hood from a Redeye, while the Demon features a wide, single-slot opening.
