Combined horsepower is 1,485.
If you've missed out on owning a Dodge Viper or Challenger Demon, you’ll have a chance to own two exceptional examples this June – if your pocketbook is deep enough. Later this year at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Uncasville, Connecticut, Dodge will auction the final two models of each. However, if you wanted just one not the other, you’re out of luck. Dodge will sell the two as a pair. That’s 1,485-combined horsepower for your garage. Dodge is calling the auction “The Ultimate Last Chance.” Last chance to remortgage the house, maybe.
"An avid collector could search a lifetime to try to put two vehicles of this pedigree together and never find it, it's that elusive," said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge/SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat – FCA North America. "Pairing the last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the Dodge Viper production cars – two of America's most sought-after vehicles – under the roof of Barrett-Jackson gives someone the 'last' chance to own this unique piece of automotive history, and Dodge//SRT the opportunity to raise money for a cause close to our hearts."
The final 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood that produces 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. The Demon, the last of the 3,300 Dodge will ever build, wears the Viper Red exterior color. Along with the massive amount of horsepower, the final Demon comes with the front passenger seat, trunk carpet kit, custom Demon car cover, build sheet, and Demon Crate, which is full of additional parts such as the front-runner drag wheels, replacements powertrain control module, and Demon-branded track tools.
Sending the final 2017 Dodge Viper to auction for charity is probably the noblest way to say goodbye to the legendary supercar after 25 years. The Viper has a 645-hp, 8.4-liter V10 under its long hood, sending power to the massive, 14-inch wide rear tires. The iconic side-exit exhaust and carbon-fiber body are just a few of the unique touches. Other goodies include exterior carbon-fiber accents, black Alcantara leather seats, and exclusive authentication kit. The Viper, too, wears Viper Red exterior paint.
How much will someone spend for the pair? Well, considering the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat VIN0001 raised $1.65 million for charity in 2014, expect this pair to go for a healthy seven figures. The auction takes place June 20-23.

“An avid collector could search a lifetime to try to put two vehicles of this pedigree together and never find it, it’s that elusive,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America. “Pairing the last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the Dodge Viper production cars – two of America’s most sought-after vehicles – under the roof of Barrett-Jackson gives someone the ‘last’ chance to own this unique piece of automotive history, and Dodge//SRT the opportunity to raise money for a cause close to our hearts.”
Plans to auction the end-of-era Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and Dodge Viper vehicles – “The Ultimate Last Chance” – were announced today during the Barrett-Jackson West Palm Beach auction in Florida.
“We couldn’t be more excited to team up with Dodge for another significant sale,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Over the years, Barrett-Jackson has reached incredible milestones with Dodge, including the sale of a 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (VIN 001) that raised $1.65 million at our 2014 Las Vegas Auction to benefit Opportunity Village Foundation. The sale of 'The Ultimate Last Chance' is a car collector’s dream and we are honored to partner with Dodge and support their philanthropic goals.”
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon rattled the windows with a debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, grabbing attention with its 840-hp rating, street-legal drag radial tires and record-setting performance, first front-wheel lift in a production car, certified by Guinness World Records and world’s fastest quarter-mile production car (9.65 seconds ET/140 mph), certified by the National Hot Rod Association.
Production of the Challenger SRT Demon is limited to one model year and a total of 3,300 units (3,000 U.S./300 Canada).
In addition to the Viper Red exterior color, the last production 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon includes:
- Black interior with cloth/Alcantara leather seats
- Front passenger seat
- Rear seat delete
- Trunk carpet kit
- Custom Demon car cover
- VIN instrument panel badge
- Demon Authentication package (build sheets and Certicard)
- Demon Crate, which includes narrow front-runner drag wheels, performance powertrain control module with high-octane engine calibration, replacement switch module with high-octane button and a set of Demon-branded track tools
The vehicles cross the block during the Barrett-Jackson Northeast auction (June 20-23) at the Mohegan Sun Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut. One hundred percent of proceeds from the sale go to the United Way.
“By giving both dollars and time, our employees provide a lot of ‘muscle’ to support United Way,” said Brian Harlow, Head of Manufacturing and United Way Chair for FCA US LLC. “To really kick this year’s United Way campaign into high gear, we are excited to offer up even more might with 'The Ultimate Last Chance' auction. Offering the last two of these iconic vehicles in a one-of-a-kind auction package will not only fulfill any car collector’s dreams, but also provide much needed support for those less fortunate.”
Production of American hand-built V-10-powered Dodge Viper concluded at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit in fall 2017. The last production 2017 Dodge Viper is styled in homage to the first-generation Dodge Viper RT/10 with its Viper Red exterior and black interior. The car (VIN ending in 731948) includes exterior carbon fiber accents, black Alcantara leather seats and an exclusive VIN instrument panel badge and authentication kit.
Dodge//SRT and Barrett-Jackson have collaborated before, with charity as the winner. A one-of-a-kind 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, VIN0001, raised $1.65 million for charity in 2014 — at the time more than any other car in Barrett-Jackson history.
