The Very Last SRT Demon Has Rolled Off The Assembly Line

Well, we all knew this day would come. On May 30th, 2018, the last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon rolled off the line. At the Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada, it marked the end of the 3,300 production run of the 840 hp street legal racer. There hasn’t been any chatter about a 2019 model, so we’re not getting our hopes up. The 3,000 examples that were sold in the US will have to do for now. The remainig 300 were just for Canada. Since this marks a historic day in the life of the Demon, Dodge wanted to capture every minute of this day, and rightfully so.

The Demon you see here is heading to auction alongside the last 2017 Dodge Viper. The two will be sold together for a total of 1,485 hp. The pair is expected to sell for quite a bit of money (we’re thinking somewhere in the seven-figure range). But only time will tell. Check it out, right here.

Most Beautiful Muscle: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A

The 1970 Dodge Challenger you see above belongs to John Incardone. He made the purchase when he was just a teenager back in 1976 and it’s only belonged to him ever since. Just 2,400 of these cars were ever made and post-restoration, this might be one of the most beautiful. Check out Incardone’s most prized possession below:

Jay Leno Hops In The DeLorean DMC12

Nothing like taking one of the most iconic movie cars of all time for a spin. Bob Gale, the Back to the Future co-creator, brought the DeLorean DMC12 to Jay Leno’s Garage and suddenly we feel like time-traveling. Bob brought some awesome fun facts from when the movie was in development. For example, the script was rejected over 40 times, the time machine was originally a refrigerator, and Marty McFly was played by Eric Stoltz for the first month or so.

The car that’s featured in the episode isn’t the actual car from the movie, that one is at the Peterson Museum. But the one you see here has many original parts and looks almost perfect. Check out the episode and find out why the car had to reach 88 mph to travel through time, and the thought process behind the modifications that make this time machine look like the real deal. Enjoy.

Introducing The 2019 Shelby GT350

First things first, we want to warn you that that the 2019 GT350 looks very similar to the 2018 version it is replacing. But don’t worry, there are some serious changes under the hood that we know you’re going to like. Ford told Motor1 that customers are fans of the GT350 look, so they decided to focus more on chassis changes instead of cosmetic adjustments.

Noteworthy upgrades include:

  • An upgraded suspension with new springs and revised dampers
  • Three-mode electronic stability control
  • New Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires with 19-inch aluminum wheels
  • Six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo brakes
  • A revised spoiler
  • A 5.2-liter Voodoo V8 engine

The 2019 GT350 will have 2 new color options: Velocity Blue and Ford Performance Blue. Customers can also opt for factory-painted racing stripes in 3 colors: Shadow Black, Oxford white, and Kona Blue. We didn’t expect Ford to make any extreme changes with the 2019 model, but they’ve done just enough to keep us interested. See for yourself, right here.
