Final Dodge Challenger Demon And Viper Sold For A Combined $1 Million


And that's a wrap.

Someone has just paid $1 million for a combined 1,485 hp, according to Dodge's official Twitter account. Not a bad price tag considering what it is they just bought: the final production 2017 Dodge Viper and 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The gavel slammed down with that final amount this past Saturday at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction in Connecticut. As we previously reported, all proceeds from this specific double-car auction will benefit the United Way charity.

And yes, the cars were sold together as a package; there was no option to bid on them separately. The final Viper pictured here was actually built last August only days before the Detroit-based Conner Avenue Assembly Plant that built all Vipers permanently shut its doors.

There was a recent rumor claiming Dodge intends to re-launch the Viper, perhaps as soon as the Detroit Auto Show this coming January, but we seriously doubt that. As for the final Demon, it only rolled off Ontario’s Brampton Assembly Plant production line late last month. Originally painted black, the Demon received several post-production details, such as hand-painted exclusive Viper Red exterior paint, 18-inch Demon drag radials, and final VIN instrument badging. We don’t know just yet who exactly placed the winning bid, but you can watch the auction itself in the video above, though it isn’t of the best quality. Fortunately, it’s loud and clear when that $1 million bid was placed.
