    Challenger SRT Demon To Come With Acknowledgement Agreement


    • If you're ordering a Demon, you'll be signing one of these

    The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is one of the wildest vehicles ever to go on sale. Because of this, Dodge is having all of the buyers sign an acknowledgment form to know what they are getting themselves into. 

    Allpar obtained a copy of the form which requires a buyer to initial 15 lines and provide a signature. A dealership employee must witness the signing and provide their own signature. The form then has to be notarized before being sent off to FCA.

    The document has some items that are straightforward such as the buyer assuming all risks in driving a drag vehicle, not letting passengers ride in the vehicle without having the seats installed, and reading the owners manual. There are some other parts of the document that gives some idea of the restrictions being put on by Dodge.

    • Lines 6 through 8 deal with the Demon's tires - a set of Nitto NT05R drag radials. You are asked to avoid driving on the highway as the tires will wear quickly. You are also asked to not drive it in the rain due to hydroplaning. Line 8 is the most explicit, saying you should not move the Demon in temperatures below 15 degrees Fahrenheit, as the tires may crack from lack of flexibility.
    • Line 5 asks the customer to promise not to use any track-specific features, like launch control, on public roads.
    • Line 15 has the customer acknowledge that they either paid MSRP or higher. As we reported this week, dealers that price the Demon above MSRP will see their orders pushed to the back.

    You can out the full document on Allpar.

    Interesting Reading, so to pick up your demon, they will have to schedule to have a notary on site. Pretty much what I would expect for this type of auto with all the restrictions. I am surprised they do not state what type of street tires must be used.

    Overall very COOL! :metal: 

    Love that nothing says you cannot drag race the auto.

    Cool...but honestly I have more respect for people like Subaru who build mass market performance cars aimed at something other than drag racing.

    If you want to go drag racing, eighty five grand will buy you something faster than the Demon, a tow vehicle, an enclosed trailer, extra parts, and a year of fuel and entry fees.

    Lawyer mandated - absolutely.

    This is also general fare for risk and reputational management these days.

    Let's face it.  This car is NOT a daily driver at all.  It is a toy.

    The form is what the adults must sign to show that they will still be adults with their expensive toy.

    More troublesome is FCA mentally reverting to 1970 when it is 2017

    It is almost like watching a dying man have one last good Memory before he passes.

    FWIW back in the sixties people signed waiver also for car like this.
