Dealerships Auctioning-Off the Right to Buy a Demon

Dodge Demon Sales Getting Even Weirder

To us simpletons, this may seem like something out of a lame crime show, but unfortunately, this is the world we live in. By using a third-party intermediary, some dealerships have allegedly been using eBay to auction off the distribution rights to their new Dodge Demons.

The allocation right bids are starting at tens of thousands of dollars, and it all comes from Dodge wanting to regulate the pricing of the Demon to make sure dealerships don’t try to take advantage of customers…which is exactly what is happening regardless of Dodge’s intervention.

The world is never shocked when people do things to get more money, but a nice turn comes from some dealerships using the sale as a charity event instead of solely as a profiteering scheme. The Dodge dealership out of Traverse City, Michigan, is one example, in case you feel like being part of something a little different.

With these developments, we can probably expect to see even more fishy business surfacing around Dodge Demon sales as the release date marches ever closer. Dodge is very aware of what is going on, but there is little to nothing they can do about it. They are paying close attention to the situation, though, and if anything develops, Dodge will surely be the first to know.

Do you think dealerships have a right to mark up their rare Demon inventory or is this just a gross display of greed and manipulation? Let us know in the comments below!

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
