One of our photographers caught this Dodge Challenger out testing without any camouflage. At first glance it looks like an SRT Demon, since it has the same widebody flares and front spoiler of the hellacious Challenger. However, the hood is from a garden-variety Hellcat (as if such a thing existed...), the rear spoiler has an SRT Hellcat badge, and the wheels don't come from the kitty or the Hellspawn.

  Some Dodge dealers taking Demon deposits, even though they shouldn't be Fortunately, showrooms seem to have learned from early Hellcat supply-and-demand problems.Last Friday, I spoke with Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car brands at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and according to the executive, "Technically, no one should be taking any deposits. They can't physically take an order, and they shouldn't be taking any deposits." That's because, as Kuniskis notes, "we haven't given the dealers the allocation methodology, the allocation numbers or opened up the order banks yet.

And when we say "used," we mean it. The Challenger's body sports all manner of dings, dents, and scratches from being featured in the chase scenes, as well as several film-friendly modifications like chopped front seats, chassis-mounted camera brackets, and some extra "painted-on" cosmetic damage. Additionally, window frames were added to the tops of the doors to help real-life stuntwoman Zoe Bell strap in for the famous "Ship's Mast" hood-riding scene.

Of course, Grindhouse aficionados will point out that the car featured in the film was purportedly a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Magnum (like the one in Vanishing Point), but some movie magic by Tarantino's production crew made this 1971 stand-in look like the real deal.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Police Concept Is a Cop's Dream Car

  Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Police Concept Is a Cop's Dream Car <p>Catching up to speeders would never be an issue..but the fleet's tire supply would be.</p>Equipped with all the normal patrol car gear like lights, a push bar, steel wheels, decaling, etc, this Dodge Challenger is ready to hit the mean streets of your imagination. Creator Aksyonov Nikita did a great job of making the Challenger look like a real patrol car. Unfortunately, 840 horsepower (or even the 707 horsepower of a Hellcat) may not be the best for daily patrol or the silent approach...but it is always fun to dream a little.

Many get lost to history, but the few survivors can end up being worth a king’ s ransom. This Dodge Challenger , which came from the Quentin Tarantino Death Proof movie is currently at a reasonable price, but that probably won’t stay the same for very long.

Under the hood, the car's original 6.3-liter, 383 Magnum V-8 engine still pulls strong and has benefited from a host of new and refreshed parts, and the eBay listing says the transmission shifts smoothly. The electrical system has been completely worked over, and a new fuel tank and exhaust system should keep you from smelling too much like gasoline.

And befitting of a Hollywood car, its recent reemergence comes with a hell of a story. The Challenger is being sold by Movie Cars Central, a European-based private collection of famous film vehicles whose team discovered the car sitting in a garage in Australia when they traveled Down Under to work on a totally-unrelated Mad Max Interceptor restoration.

In a YouTube video accompanying the ad, the previous owner describes the series of events that led to him accidentally buying a piece of movie history. Back in early 2007, after filming for Death Proof was completed but before the movie's release, a friend imported the Dodge Challenger in question sight unseen and was disappointed in its battered condition when the car arrived in Australia. The previous owner then bought it off his friend, thinking it would make an excellent restoration project.

It wasn't until another friend saw the car in a trailer for the movie a few months later that the man realized what he had. At that point, he decided to leave the car as-is and wait for someone to buy it who would appreciate its cinematic heritage and not make the same mistake he almost did. Movie Cars Central quickly snatched up the Challenger, and now's your chance to do the same. But act quickly—bidding is currently north of $13,000 with five days still to go.

No One At Dodge Knew About Demon's Development Because Of This .
Оnly a few dozen people within the company were aware of the project.We’ve stumbled upon a quite interesting information from Autoline Network, regarding the internal codenaming of the Demon project. Trying to keep the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine of the car in secret within the company, Dodge decided to give it the generic code name Benny. Company officials have told the online channel that “it would have been logical to give the Demon engine an old war plane name, like Hellcat, but that would have raised red flags.” A simple yet brilliant solution.
