Someone Just Tried to Sell 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon on eBay for $250,000
Quarter mil for a quarter mile beast
Updated June 9, 2017
2018 Dodge Challenger Demon is not due in at least few more months, but the hype surrounding the future drag king is turning into real struggle. Such a struggle indeed, that some people are already trying to exploit that. For I don’t know what other term to use in order to describe this guy’s attempt at selling his, still not ordered Demon, for no less than $250,000.
eBay listing in question has recently ended. Without success, as you might imagine. But despite that, sheer emergence of such preposterous offer makes us wonder. Is there a high enough amount of money for a muscle car that we should consider crazy? Then, if there is one, how does quarter million dollars fit that script?
But before we all start blasting this unscrupulous peddler of our favorite goods, let’s hear his side of the story. Taken straight from the listing is his point of view (as was written):
“I have secured and locked in a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Before anyone jumps down my throat saying “Your crazy for the price your asking” just hear me out with the facts. They just released the MSRP and fully loaded it is just under $100,000. Now with that being said, that is the price before tax and before the inevitable huge dealer markup IF you can even get one at all!”
Be that as it may, I still find $250,000 sticker a bit too steep. I highly doubt taxes and dealer markup will amount to additional 150% atop the fully stocked car’s price. What he’s charging for here, is practically the luxury of being able to actually order one. They will be limited to 3,300 units total, 3,000 of which are US models. But that’s still not that rare to warrant such an exorbitant price tag.
Moreover, seller states that potential buyer will be able to choose all options if he/she completes the purchase before the seller orders the car. Otherwise, it’s the seller who’ll decide what equipment this Dodge Challenger Demon will end up with. From this, we can clearly see the seller isn’t interested in keeping the car even if no one ends up buying it off his hands. In other words, he’ll likely be forced to lower the price with every passing day. That’s the risk of selling something you don’t already possess. Anyway, we weren’t the only ones to see through his bluff. He tried, he failed. Expect him to lower the price in the coming months. The ad is worth keeping an eye on if you’re genuinely interested in Dodge Challenger Demon, and end up failing to make the list.
