You probably don’t need a parts car for your three-year-old Dodge Challenger Hellcat yet. But if, for some reason, you do (insert FCA quality joke), there’s a completely destroyed 2015 model available for sale right now on copart. And the pictures will make you cry.
I think the fundamental, pureéd gruel-like blandness of the Dodge Diplomat is probably best summed up in how this promo movie describes it’s size: “between a compact and an intermediate!” Somehow, Dodge’s engineers have managed to invent a size of car more boring than “mid-sized.” Kudos, gentlemen.

There’s a difference between needing transportation to function in daily life and wanting a dream car. When it comes to the latter, whether a $6,500 Craigslist deal or an $85,000 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, here’s a tip you don’t need to pay any crowdfunded cash for: people don’t want to help you buy it.

To get that extra 133 horsepower over a basic, boring, DONE! Dodge Hellcat, you’re going to have to shell out nearly $20,000 more. Dodge announced pricing for its newest, shiniest hyper-muscle-car today, and you’ll pay at least $84,995 for a base model Demon. That’s nearly as much as the last Dodge Viper.

Let’s say you show up to a track for some fun times in your hot hatchback. And then, just hypothetically, a friend randomly shows up there with his new toy: a 2017 Dodge Charger Hellcat. He tosses you the keys and says “have fun, buddy.” But there’s a catch—it’s pretty wet out there.
Last weekend, I took a trip to the Pontiac Silverdome, the abandoned Michigan stadium parking lot housing thousands of cheating Volkswagen diesels. As I filmed the sea of disgraced automobiles, a Dodge Challenger decided to rip some smoky burnouts.
If you can find a better car than the Dodge Daytona, buy it!
Have you heard about this new car, this 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon? It has over 9,000 horsepower and everyone who drives it dies immediately, except for Richard Rawlings. That’s quite a machine!

No, seriously, check out all this stuff.
By now, you’ve heard of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. It has 840 horsepower. It has a 2.7-liter supercharger. It can come with only one seat. And it is, for all intents and purposes, a drag strip slayer. Here’s how it does it.
Dodge seems determined to make the SRT Demon a car that’s a bunch of balls-out firsts and mosts and biggests and fastests. Dodge just released a press release that goes over all these superlatives, and also drops a pretty big bomb: it’s been banned by the NHRA.
