First 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat set for auction
The first 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to roll off of the production line will be headed directly to the red carpet at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction next month. All proceeds will go to support the not-for-profit Opportunity Village, an organization serving people with significant intellectual disabilities in the Las Vegas area. To maximize that contribution, Barrett-Jackson has agreed to waive all bidding and consignment fees on this historic Hellcat which will carry VIN 0001.
"The VIN 0001 being auctioned this year is the ultimate one-of-one collectible 2015 Dodge Challenger, as Dodge is ensuring there will never be another one like it," said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands, Chrysler Group LLC.
Beyond its 707-horsepower supercharged Hemi V8, the engine, this historic Challenger SRT Hellcat will feature a unique hand-painted Stryker Red exterior- a color that is otherwise exclusive to the Dodge SRT Viper and bespoke Hellcat badging set off with Black Laguna leather cabin appointments. Other distinctive touches include a Hemi painted presentation box with a VIN 0001 electronic vehicle-build book and video documentary, custom still photos and running vehicle footage, an authentic Challenger SRT Hellcat embossed Laguna Leather iPad sleeve, a signed SRT Hellcat lithograph and a bespoke "birth certificate" for Challenger SRT Hellcat VIN 0001.
Arriving in dealers later this year, the Challenger STR Hellcat is the most powerful series-build muscle car ever created. Although pricing for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will start at $60,990, expect this one-of-a-kind first-issue version to command well into six figures when the hammer comes down.
