The Dodge Demon is no longer in production and for the new model year, Dodge has the more civilized Challenger SRT Super Stock, which takes the Nitto drag radials and the Demon widebody kit. Whichever Challenger – or Dodge in general – you are looking for, if you live in Europe, it’s essentially a forbidden fruit. Unless you are willing to pay more than three times the price of the muscle car sticker.
For example, there is a Dodge Demon currently on sale in Norway. This is the 2018 model year and comes from the dealer with a five-year warranty. The price is 2,740,000 Danish kroner, or approximately $ 287,757 at current exchange rates. As a reminder, when the Demon was still on the assembly lines, he had a price of $ 84,995.
Here’s the very reasonable question – why is this car so expensive in Norway when you can basically buy two demons for the same price in the United States. The answer is simple: the country’s tax system, which includes at least seven components – value added tax, weight tax, electricity tax, CO2 tax, NOx tax, license plates and disposal tax.
The biggest of these components is the CO2-based tax – obviously, the higher the CO2 emissions, the higher the tax. And in the case of the Demon with its 6.2-liter V8, you can only imagine how huge this burden is in Norway. Add the power-based tax to that and you end up paying almost $ 300,000 for a car that cost $ 85,000 in new condition.
The car itself would be in perfect condition with only 3,000 miles on the odometer. This is number 914 out of 3,314 products and it will certainly be an impressive sight over the country’s Norway. If only there was someone willing to pay.
