Hot Wheels Dodge Challenger – The 2018 Dodge SRT Demon

Hot Wheels Dodge Challenger is one collectible not to be missed. Even not to be missed is the 2018 Dodge SRT Demon released by Hot Wheels last year. The miniature version of this mighty super power muscle car was released in 2018 after the real car was released in 2017 at a New York International Auto Show press preview.

There were two colors released for this Hot Wheels ’18 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon which were Yellow and Zamac. We will share the Yellow color version here.

Hot Wheels released this 2018 Dodge SRT Demon under the Factory Fresh 8/10 series.

 

The back of the carded pack is simple. It does not have a short description of the car like some other packs do.

Now, we will have a look at Hot Wheels 1:64 scale of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

There are no detailed headlights. The paint finish is not smooth for this particular diecast but it creates the effect of dirt smudge on the front especially at the radiator grille area. The front scoop looks cool.

 

Some imperfections can be seen on the roof as well. It looked like there was a cut there. The windows are heavily tinted that it is very difficult to see the black interior from here. The black dashboard can be seen slightly.

 

From the side views, black demon logos can be seen between the front fenders and the doors. It is marvelous to see that Hot Wheels put in the red detailed marker lights like the real car. Plus the detailed fuel lid as well! Wheels are black B5SP. Notice another imperfection line on the left door!

It is awesome to see that Hot Wheels did a pretty cool job here with the detailed taillights.

This is the closest we can get to show the interior of the car with the steering wheels, gearshift and dash board. For you to get even closer, you may need to get one to see it to believe it ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

The base is made of plastic in black color. It is โ€œMade in Malaysiaโ€.

 

We hope you have some great fun with this Hot Wheels ’18 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Although this collectible muscle car has a few imperfections, it is rare to find one like this that we love it to the max ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have any collection that has imperfections too but they are such a beauty? We would love to hear from you!

  1. Wow wow, OMG! my son would be thrilled to add this to his collections. He is a toy car addict and he loves to play racing video games a lot. He won a local competition here in Asphalt 8 challenge. Yes, the hot wheel dodge challenger seems very cool because of its attention to details. I like the imperfections associated with its design which makes it more cool and beautiful. I just have to get this for my kid. What price range could it be?

  2. My son loves Top Gear and he loves seeing the miniature cars in the shop. He tells me all about them but it really goes over my head most of the time. My husband is also a car fanatic so the two of them watch Top Gear and other car programs together. My boy will love this Dodge Challenger. Hot Wheels are the only cars that I buy him since he can be very rough with his toys and Hot Wheels are very sturdy. I’m just wondering about the imperfections though. Is that normal? I’ve never taken a close enough look at my son’s Hot Wheels cars before and if I can’t check now since he has had all of his for a while now so I won’t know what was there when we purchased and what was done by my son. 

    • Hi, Lynne. My husband gets Top Gear magazines too. Imperfections are rare. You can always compare your son’s Hot Wheels with the original version.

      Cheers, Rac

  3. I use to have a couple of hundred Hot Wheels cars and over the years they were given to local kids, lost, and a bunch of them stolen in California. I love the detail on their older cars, the new ones are more apt to have blemishes like you not in this review and details left undetailed. That front end to me looks very little like the real thing where they paid big attention to the rear of the car. In all, I think more diligence could have made a better value for a collector.

  4. Well I have an almost 6 year old son who loves Hot Wheels, and you have taught me something new!  I am almost embarrassed to say that I did not know they had collectible cars. 
    This Dodge Challenger is pretty awesome.  I am still not sure why it is a collector car over the other cars?  Sorry, I am not too bright on collecting toys.  Does the imperfections make it a collectors item, or is it that it is a Dodge Challenger?
    If I bought one of these, do we leave it untouched in the box to make sure it holds it’s value? 
    Sorry too many questions, should I be going through his other hot wheels cars to see if we may have any other collectibles?  Thank you for an interesting article and I loved the photos, I had to stop my son from taking over the screen while I was trying to have a read.  I will be back to look at some more of your posts.  Thanks Denise.

    • Hi, Denise. I would say we all have different ideas of collectibles as we all collect different things. Things that makes us happy or crazy over it ๐Ÿ™‚ For diecasts like Hot Wheels, most collectors collect road going cars, famous character cars or error cars. You may identify these aspects for your son’s collectibles. Those untouched in the box will definitely hold its value. 

      Cheers, Rac
