One Demon of a Challenger

The fully customized Red Demon Challenger — a collaboration between master builder Steve Sanderson and legendary designer George “King of Kustoms” Barris, the man behind iconic cars such as the Batmobile, General Lee, Munster Koach, and Beverly Hillbillies truck — is certainly one hellish ride. It packs a truly demonic 6.1 HEMI V8 supercharged to 625 horsepower under the hood, with an outer shell of sculpted Barris bodywork, 3D Carbon Fiber rally stripes, vertical doors, two-tone paint and custom wheels. After officially debuting at last year’s SEMA auto show, the car has finally found its way from production to select showroom floors. Got a spare $150, 000 and too impatient to wait for it to find its way to a floor near you? You can order directly from Sanderson’s Pilot Point Texas Shop.

    I think an airgrabber hood would look better. I’m not diggin the red window tint. It reminds me of the color tinted sun glasses of the 80’s. Lets put on a red polyester suit with 6″ heel platform shoes. You can purchase remakes of the batmobile for $100,000 and I think that would be a better investment. This looks like a Challenger out of Deathrace 2000 with David Carradine.

    YeeeCH!!!!! What a waste of money. Go to Mr.Norms and get the car of your dreams for probably less than what it took to euthanize a good car. Better yet, if you got money to waste,
    waste it my way and give me the stock challenger. I’d love it to death. Looks like that car was made for David Hasselhoff, in his new hit movie, “Knight Back To The Future Rider”.

    I have to agree with most posters here on this one. They took a great-looking car, the Dodge Challenger, and managed to find a way to make it ugly!

    Plain nasty! And I mean that in a bad way. Looks cheap and gaudy. Barris designs are simply outdated, and his look has ruined what was a beautiful car. Previous post got it right, the Mr. Norms versions are tops, and totally outclass this thrown-together mess.

    I guess I will be the odd one out. I love the Challenger in its original state but understanding the history of George Barris I think the car looks pretty good for what it is intended to be…

    That is exactly what it looks like. You hit the nail on the head. Yellow and red look cheap or silly together (like a clown) and this McChallenger is pretty ugly.
