Dodge's 7th 2023 'Last Call' Model is a 1,025 Horsepower Challenger Demon 170

After a month of teases we can now confirm that the 7th and final "Last Call" Dodge model is a monster designed to surpass the 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon in every way. The vehicle was delayed because the engineers kept blowing up engines.

Dodge has unveiled its seventh and final “Last Call” vehicle and it instantly becomes the most powerful muscle car in the world. The 1,025-horsepower 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 reaches 60 mph in just 1.66 seconds and will run the quarter-mile in 8.91 seconds. During a video conference leading up to the launch, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told reporters “This is the new pinnacle of factory crazy.”

“To celebrate the end of the HEMI muscle-car era, we pulled off all the governors to reach a new level, a new benchmark of ‘factory-crazy’ production car performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “In 2015, Dodge shocked the world with the 707-horsepower Hellcat. Then, in 2018, we did it with the 840-horsepower Demon, and now we are doing it again with the 1,025-horsepower Demon 170, the world’s first sustainable-energy, eight-second, factory-production, street-legal muscle car.”
