Former IndyCar Champion Michael Andretti Is Selling His Barely Driven Dodge Demon

Auction / 4 Comments

With only 13 delivery miles on the odometer, this Demon is practically fresh out of the factory.

If you want to buy a brand-new Dodge Demon, we're afraid you're out of luck because the 840-hp muscle car is no longer in production. However, you can still find some used examples that are still practically fresh out of the factory.

This example you're looking at is not only virtually brand new but also has a celebrity on the previous owner's list. The 47th car out of the initial 50 built for VIPs and company executives, this Demon was built for former F1 driver and IndyCar champion Michael Andretti, the son of the legendary Mario Andretti.

The retired race car driver had his Demon finished in bright yellow with a contrasting black hood, roof, wheels, and interior.

Racing fans will know Michael Andretti as one of the most successful drivers in American open-wheel car racing, having won the 1991 CART PPG Indy Car World Series and secured 42 race victories in his racing career spanning nearly two decades. He's since retired from racing but now runs the successful Andretti Autosport team that competes in the IndyCar Series, Indy Lights, the FIA Formula E Championship.

Given his commitments, Andretti doesn't appear to have a lot of time to enjoy his Dodge Demon. Tragically, it's barely been driven at all as it only has 13 delivery miles on the clock. Let's hope the next owner gives it the attention it deserves because the Demon was built to dominate the drag strip.

Mecum Auctions will be selling Andretti's Dodge Demon at an auction in Dallas next month. No estimate has been given for the selling price, but there's also no reserve. When it was still in production, a brand-new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will have set you back $84,995, but we suspect this example will sell for a lot more given its rarity and celebrity connection.
