The Dodge Demon 170 takes 1.66 seconds to get from 0 to 60 mph, making it is the second-fastest car in the world after the electric McMurtry.
More to the point, with an MSRP of $97,000, the Demon 170 is uncharacteristically expensive for a muscle car.
And unfortunately dealers and private sellers alike are doing ‘their thang’ and making it unattainable.

With its 1,025-horsepower engine, the Dodge Challenger Demon 170 is all about performance.
There aren’t any ghastly decals, giant wings or seats upholstered in crazy materials.
This is just fast car, and it’s a rare one at that, because production is limited to 3,330 units.
And it’s expensive, too, with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $96,666.
The key word here is ‘suggested’.
We had a look online and it turns out it’s impossible to find one at MSRP.
A dealer in the Mid-West is asking $250,000 for it.
There’s also a Facebook Marketplace ad by a seller in Spring Hill, Tennessee who’s trying to fetch $250,000 or more for two Demon 170 models he still has.
In the ad, the seller notes that there are “two allocations left” and another Demon 170 they had “sold for over $200,000”.
These prices make no sense, but we do understand the hype.
Thing is, this may very well be the last gas-powered muscle car because Dodge is already working on battery-powered ones.
Last year, they unveiled the new Daytona SRT (below), the world’s first electric muscle car.
Muscle cars are all about performance and sound.
The first part is not an issue, because extracting horsepower out of an EV is quite easy.
The second part is a bit tricky, but Dodge decided to address this by creating a state-of-the-art sound for the electric muscle car, too.
They call it ‘Dark Matter’.
This is just a prototype, but a production version for the electric charger is expected by 2025.
