AUCTION: With the introduction of the new Hellcat Redeye, Dodge is offering a Challenger that’s (arguably) 99% as demonic as the Demon, but for fifteen grand less – and without the production cap.
That’s bound to make many muscle fans very happy indeed. But strictly speaking, the Demon is still the most powerful version ever offered. Unfortunately, with all 3,300 examples now completed, it’s off the market. So if you’re hell-bent on still getting one, you’ll need to turn to the second-hand market.
Fortunately there’s not one, but two examples of the Demon coming up for auction. They’re still practically factory-fresh, and they’re being sold as a pair at Mecum Auctions‘ upcoming sale in Monterey.
Build numbers 1,142 and 1,045 are both done up in red with black interiors, the only major difference between them being the blacked-out hood, roof, and decklid on the latter. They both still have the dealer plastic in place, and are only showing 77 and 43 miles on their respective odometers.
Of course, like any other Demons, they both pack Mopar’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, kicking out 808 horsepower on ordinary pump fuel or as much as 840 horsepower (on 100-octane racing fuel). Even weighing over 4,000 pounds, they’ll run to 60 in 2.3 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 9.65 – even quicker than the 797-hp Redeye that’ll do the same in 3.4 and 10.8.
The Demon, in short, is still king of the proverbial hill when it comes to muscle cars and straight-line acceleration. And this may be your best chance at buying one, let alone two: one to keep and one to drive. Or one for you and one for the missus. Either way, the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa will be the place to be on August 23-25.
MOTORSPORT: How do you get to the Indianapolis 500? Practice, practice, practice. Or you could just buy this car right here.
It’s a 2012 Dallara-Honda DW12, and just so happens to be the very one in which Alexander Rossi won the 100th Indianapolis 500. And it’s coming up for auction.
The backbone of IndyCar racing for over six years now, the DW12 was introduced in 2012 as the replacement for the long-running IR-05 that was also built by Italian constructor Dallara (operating out of its US base in Indianapolis). Named after its late test driver Dan Wheldon, it’s undergone a series of transformations over the years since, but it’s remained essentially the same platform underneath.
On May 26, 2016, Rossi drove this example – chassis number 037 – across the brick-strip finish line to win the 100th running of “the Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” sealing his place in the record books. It was his first time competing in the Indy 500, far exceeding the rookie-of-the-year award he was expected to get (and ultimately did) – and outstripped his earlier experience in European single-seaters that took him all the way up to Formula One.
Running under Honda power, the car features the Japanese manufacturer’s own aero kit. And though these powertrains are typically kept under lock and key by their suppliers, the car still retains its original 2.2-liter twin-turbo V6 engine – licensed by Honda under a hundred-year lease. That in and of itself makes this a rather rare opportunity for a collector in the market for a modern Indy racer, capable of hitting speeds in excess of 230 miles per hour. And its most notable success makes it all the more compelling.
If that strikes you as just your ticket, the Hyatt Regency in Monterey will be the place to be on August 25, when Mecum Auctions will sell it off to the highest bidder.
