Ralph Gilles: FCA Design boss, track rat and automotive muscle car celebrity is making space in his garage for a “devilish project” that he plans on getting soon. However, he’s selling off a devilish muscle car that he already owns in order to do so. What we mean to say is that Gilles is putting up his highly collectable Dodge Demon for sale, and it’s currently listed on Michigan’s Platinum Motorcars website for $139,995, which is about $10,000 to $15,000 more than what’s normally seen at auctions.
It’s not just that this Dodge Demon is owned by modern Mopar royalty, but also that it was the fourth one ever produced with a VIN. The Gilles Dodge Demon is colored Octane Red Pearlcoat, and seems to be loaded with many options, such as the reinstallation of the passenger seats, which only cost a dollar to do. Also on the inside are red seat belts, the full HD radio, dual zone climate control, and other basic comforts.
The Ralph Gilles-owned Dodge Demon has just 1,200 miles on the odometer since he took delivery two years ago. since then, per the listing. Ironically, despite being a regular at the race track with his Dodge Viper ACR, he never took this cranked out Challenger to the drag strip.
The Dodge Demon was originally priced at $86,090 and was limited to just 3,000 units in the United States and a further 300 in Canada. It stands as the most capable factory car in the quarter mile, as well as the most powerful muscle car ever to be offered from an automaker. Making it more special is its highly limited production run, because according to the words of Dodge marketing boss Tim Kuniskis, “it’s not coming back.”
As of now, only Ralph Gilles knows what’s in store for his car collection next. And if it’s going to be good enough to replace a Demon, chances are it’s going to get a lot of attention when that delivery happens.
