When did they stop? Why?FitSoldier said:They don't make the monstrous 840 horsepower Demon anymore. You'll have to do some digging to find one second hand or a new one. The equivalent now is the 797 horsepower Hellcat Redeye. Not as expensive as the demon, but still up there.
These cars only come in automatic though.
Mainly it was a marketing ploy, and bragging rights of the most powerful American car on the market. It was fast and needed to be modified with some additional safety equipment to make it legal to run on drag strips. The Demon was really only designed to go 1/4 mile at a time, hence to use of an auto transmission.nikm128 said:When did they stop? Why?
I thought it had been discontinued. Yeah then your gonna be looking at price tags of 120k or more.max h said:Mainly it was a marketing ploy, and bragging rights of the most powerful American car on the market.

You'll give the Hamster a heart attacknikm128 said:Lol, I'm gonna go put some 93 in the prius and see how it feels about that.
Oh, and speaking of that car, I though you might all find it funny that my dad replaced the stock (rims that were on the care when we bought it) chrome rims with some some Vision wheels. Surprisingly it doesn't look that bad though.
I use to know some good looking soccer moms that drove minivans. They do have a purpose, just not in my house. The closest I could get was a Ford AWD Edge for the wife.nikm128 said:Hmmmm, perhaps the minivan then? It totally deserves a "treat" after sitting for like 9 months with a full tank right?
That's true about fuel economy, the Hellcats do like to go fast and are thirsty while they do that. So you're 91 octane fuel costs about $3.73USD a gallon with converting from liters and Canadian Dollars.FitSoldier said:Gas. Is. Expensive. In. Canada.
When relatives visit from the States, they always make remarks about the extortion prices we pay here versus in the USA. We go by cents/Liter. For 91 Premium (which is what I feed my Stang), it's about 130 cents per liter. We do the math to convert that to gallons, and it's around $5.00 per gallon give or take. That's just the 91 Premium. 94 Octane is what the Hellcat likes. That costs more.
But then again, we don't purchase these vehicles to save gas.
Haha, you'd be surprised at the cars I've played with a little bit. The funniest one I think would be a riced out (I think) '98 Subaru Outback. They were revving the snot out of their fart can at a red light and my mom joking told me to race them. Of course I pretended she was serious and I floored it and just listened to their million decibel exhaust get further and further behind me. And yes they were actually going for it too lol.86 ssinit said:Nikm is passing them too!! And in his mini van .
I wanted to stop but didn't wanna be that weirdo walking around someone's nice car at dark... even though I dress professionally and have a nice vehicle myself, still feel awkward doing that. If the owner would have been standing by it then I would have stopped to chat though for sure! Hope I see it again.Canaculus said:...that's a very rare car...
If it had been me I would have taken literally 200+ pictures .
Maybe you could even get the new electric one .Magicpenny75 said:You want some fun? This is what makes for fun on the road... I'll take it without the Nurburgring paint job, but yeah.... I'd have traded my Mustang back for my '06 R53 Supercharged Mini Cooper S any day of the week... I literally have dreams about that car.
2020 Mini John Cooper Works GP Pocket Rocket Costs $44,900
One day...after the girl has her college degree under her belt and my 401k isn't so dismal...one day I will buy another MINI.
It's still a BMW. THe JCW GP Costs about what an M3 does, so I can't say for certain I'd choose that, except having owned a MINI before I know how fun it is, I just might.Canaculus said:Maybe you could even get the new electric one .
Edit: that MINI looks fantastic. I hope it drives as good as it looks.
Is BMW still making them? Or are they their own company?
