Noted for insuring classic cars and enthusiast automobiles, Hagerty will now offer its services to owners of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The company will provide specific protection to the 3,000 U.S. and 300 Canadian clients who buy the 840-hp muscle vehicle.
“We are living in the golden age of automotive performance, and the Demon is the newest example that speaks straight to the hearts of enthusiasts,” stated McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “The insurance coverage market contributed to ending the first fantastic muscle vehicle era, and we’re here to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself.” Hagerty is the official insurance provider of the Demon, Dodge states.
Devils covered by Hagerty will take advantage of the Guaranteed Value policy, which will be useful for owners who total their Demon. The vehicle’s worth is set at the time the policy is released, getting rid of the need to work out on the car’s worth in such a scenario.
The Demon shows up in car dealerships this fall with a starting cost of $86,090. Under the hood is a 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine creating 840 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque. Dodge states it can hit 60 mph in a simple 2.3 seconds. Sadly, as long as you keep the standard drag radial tires, Dodge encourages you not to move the vehicle in temperature levels under 15 degrees Fahrenheit or drive it on the highway.
For those thinking to take a drag car on the streets, Hagerty has made a dedicated Demon insurance hotline at -LRB-844-RRB- 840-8733.
