Purple Dodge Demon Convertible Is The Real Deal

For Sale / Comments

There are only 3,300 examples of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in the world, and Dodge has no intention of building any more. This particular one, however, stands out more than the rest. No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. This isn't an artist render: it's a real Dodge Demon convertible. While Ford sells a convertible version of the Mustang, Dodge has never produced an open-top version of the Challenger, but now that fantasy has become a reality. That's right, someone was actually crazy enough to build a convertible Dodge Demon.

Listed for sale by the Cape Coral Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealership in Florida, the custom Dodge Demon was built by Droptop Customs, which was established in 1976 and famously built a pair of Challenger convertibles commissioned by Shaquille O'Neal.

It's finished in purple and is the 2,762nd Dodge Demon that rolled off the production line out of the 3,300 that were built. According to MotorAuthority, the car is currently on consignment and has had two owners. the first was a Michigan dealership, while the second registered the car in Indiana with just 14 miles on the clock.

To improve the car's structural integrity after removing the roof, Droptop Customs reinforced the frame rails inboard of the rockers with 1x2-inch pieces of metal. Structural supports were also added to the front edge of the trunk, both the front and rear shock towers were reinforced, and gussets were added to the bottom rear corner of each door to prevent them from moving.

Replacing the fixed roof is a three-layer soft-top with a heated glass rear window, which is controlled with manual latches on both sides of the windshield and is power operated by a hydraulic motor. The top can be raised or lowered in around 20 seconds at low speeds, but Droptop Customers recommends doing this when the car is stationay. That's probably wise considering the Dodge Demon will sprint from 0-62 mph in 2.3-seconds thanks to a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 generating up to 840 hp with the right kind of fuel.

It isn't known the conversion cost, but the dealer is selling this one-of-a-kind Dodge Demon convertible for $145,995. That's nearly twice as much as the Dodge Demon's original price, which started at $84,995. Whoever ponies up the cash for this purple pony car can commute to the drag strip with the wind in their hair, and then lay sub-10-second times when they arrive.
