2018 Challenger SRT Demon - $198k

9 miles. No. 2,746 of 3,300 produced. 1 of 264 produced with Plum Crazy Pearl paint. Supercharged 6.2L/808 HP Hemi V-8 engine with 717 lbs/ft of torque. TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. Power sunroof. Black satin Air Grabber hood. 18x11-inch aluminum wheels. Demon branded P315 Nitto drag radial tires. Widebody fender flares. Brembo 4-piston lightweight brakes.
Dodge unveiled what it claimed was its fastest muscle car ever: the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon with 808 horsepower and 717 lb-ft of twist. Add 100+ octane gas and that is 840 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque. Quarter mile comes in 9.65 seconds and 140 mph, which means it is legally banned from racing on a track without a rollcage. It leaves the start line accelerating at 1.8 g, hitting 30 mph in 1.0 second. There is enough juice to pull a wheelie, 2.92 feet to be exact. Base MSRP for all that go power was a highly reasonable $83,295.
This as new example appeared at Mecum.

Orange Mk IV Supra of Paul Walker - $550k

In 2015 the 1993 Toyota Supra stunt car used during filming for the original Fast and the Furious, driven by the late Paul Walker, sold at auction for $185k. It was one of several MkIV Supras built for the movie and was featured in several key scenes. It’s unlikely to be winning any races as the car is basically stock and it’s a non-turbo model, meaning its 3.0 liter straight-six engine only musters around 230 hp. It wears a Bomex body kit, APR wing, and the now famous graphics.
On offer with No Reserve as Lot #744 at the 2021 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction, the car made $550k.

Abandoned supercars of Dubai


More than 3,000 cars were abandoned last year — to be sold off by Dubai police or scrapped.
Dozens of Jaguars, BMWs and Mercedes have been left with the keys in the ignitions by former owners who decided to cut their losses and run away rather than face potential jail sentences under Dubai’s strict debt laws.
High end sports cars gather dust at Dubai and Abu Dhabi airports after panicked expats flee the country to avoid prison. Under Sharia law which is observed across the Middle East, non-payment of debt is a criminal offence. As the UAE has no bankruptcy laws, there is no protection for those slipping into debt, even accidentally. There have been cases of foreigners being prevented from leaving the Emirates after being blacklisted for missing a credit card payment or bouncing a cheque.
