You'll Have to Sign a Deal With the Devil to Own a Dodge Demon

A copy of the Dodge Demon Customer Acknowledgement agreement has surfaced on the Internet.

Considering the Dodge Demon is one of the wildest automotive creations to ever hit the market, it’s little surprise the Fiat Chrysler is requiring interested parties to agree to several terms before they can purchase one. The automaker says the Demon “is the automotive industry’s first and only purpose-built, street-legal production drag car,” and as such, it’s likely anticipating some owners will get behind the wheel and act a bit reckless.

The contract starts off pretty standard, with the first point having the customer acknowledge they will have full responsibility and will assume all risks related to the use of the car. There’s also warnings about the removal of factory seats, and if the buyer opts not to have a passenger seat, they agree to never attempt to install one since the passenger will not be properly protected.

Dodge goes on to reinforce the idea that the car’s track-only features should, well, only be used on the track, and the Nitto NT05R drag radial tires are not recommended for highway use or wet weather conditions. The tires also can’t be used in temperatures lower than 15 degrees F (-9 degrees C) as they become too stiff and crack.

At the end of the contract is Dodge’s attempt at preventing dealerships from price gouging, asking the customer if the vehicle was purchased at or below MSRP, or if it is not at or below MSRP.

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is the most powerful muscle car ever created, powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 engine with 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. Something tells us that even with this contract, we’re going to see some very eventful videos surfacing on YouTube once deliveries begin.
