Hundreds of attendees at the annual Barrett-Jackson auction in Connecticut gathered to see and take photos of the last Dodge Viper and last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon before they were auctioned off to benefit the United Way.
The bidding was spirited, befitting the combined 1,485 horsepower of the cars on the stage. When the hammer dropped to end the “The Ultimate Last Chance” auction, the top bidder became the new owner of the Dodge Viper and Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, and the United Way was the winner, receiving 100 percent of $1 million hammer price for both of these iconic muscle cars.
“We know the power of the Dodge Viper and Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to put a smile on people’s faces; we’re smiling today because we know the power of this donation to the United Way,” Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge SRT, Chrysler and Fiat–FCA North America, said. “These particular vehicles mark the end of their eras as the last vehicles of their kind to be built; it’s rare to have just one such vehicle cross the auction block, much less a pair at the same time.”
“The Ultimate Last Chance” lot included several pieces of memorabilia, such as authentication kits for each vehicle containing custom build sheets, authenticity letters, certification cards, iPads with videos and photos, and other custom branded items.
