BJ has always been the place to unload a Demon. Doesn't really seem like they sell elsewhere at least not for 140k.
If you are selling you only need to do it once, right? So ppl saying this isn't "real" makes no sense. The seller sold it for 145K. VERY real to him, lol. Bottom line, if and when you want to sell your Demon, Barrett is the place (maybe high end Mecum too).

Hey didn't you sell yours there? I see on your sig it says you have a Demon. Did you buy another one? If not what's your FCA ride these days?

Yes, sold my Demon at the BJ auction last January before all this Covid crud hit. Only vehicles that are under the FCA banner are a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and a Cherokee Trailhawk. Performance wise I currently have a new GT 500 sitting in the garage which I ended up with after a multilevel trade deal with a local dealer. The GT will be sold...or traded if the right deal comes along.
Not sure if I will get another Demon or just call it good after the GT finds another home... Strange deal, guys are paying 10k ADM on these things but I have little interest at MSRP plus a few bucks TTL. But one way or the other the GT will most likely be down the road sooner than later. Nice car, just not a Mustang guy.

I know you mentioned that you never drove your Demon (and not sure if you have driven your GT) but are you still able to compare/contrast the two cars? The GT originally had a lot of hype. Almost as much as the Demon did!

Also you don't sound very impressed with the GT. Can you dive in a little deeper why? Just curious...

I only drove the GT home from the dealer. It is a well executed car. It seems to be more taunt if you will and handles better than the Demon or Redeye from my short 7 mile drive. Exhaust sound is awesome, No supercharger whine, but then I really didn't get on it. Fit and finish is excellent. Interior is well done. Backseat is tight. Huge by large brake rotors that stop you right now! Ford gives owners all sorts of memorabilia stuff with the car, which is cool. In all the GT is a decent car, and most anyone else would love to have it in the stable but guess I am just not a Mustang guy.

Oh NO! Not that guy!

Fronts are 425mm dia if I'm not mistaken.

(Hellcats are 390mm by comparison)

Its interesting your info sharing since I own one and belong to the other club LOL. And damn have you visited the other club LOL since there are few pissed off owners and a lot of crappy postings on the fit and finish sucks on many LOL. And not trolling but yeah mine is put together for the most part well but there are issues. And like any brand all have issues but have you looked at your Supercharger to see if the coolant line was installed properly? And I assume you know you cant drive her right now as well. I love mine and have 2500 miles on her and she is a race car IMO. And drives like a race car which has its ups and downs IMO. I was able to fix the coolant line on my own and was not an easy task. You technically have to take her to the dealer and have them remove the strut tower which is a major project.

Sounds like you liked the GT a lot more than the Demon. Thanks for your thoughts!

I guess I wouldn't go that far. They are different focus cars. Demon suspension, brakes, and tune are for going very fast in a straight line from a standing start. The GT, at least in my mind, is a more generalized car attempting to do everything well, but not exceptionally in one area..such as drag racing from a dig. In fact, I pondered offering the GT as partial trade to have a Demon back in my garage.
