The winner takes home a combined 1,485 hp.
We knew this day was coming, the time when we have to say goodbye to two icons, the Dodge Viper and Challenger SRT Demon. As we long knew, the Viper has already ceased production and the Demon's run is also nearly complete. They were brilliant while they lasted. And because this is the end of two eras, the final cars to roll off the production line have special value, especially for collectors. And yes, they'll have to pay handsomely.
Fortunately, Dodge has just announced that the "Ultimate Last Chance" auction is about take place as Barrett-Jackson will auction, for charity, the last 2018 Challenger SRT Demon and 2017 Dodge Viper. That's a combined output of 1,485 hp. All of the proceeds will be donated to the United Way. This is not an a la carte type of thing, but rather a combined package as the winning bid will take home both cars. "An avid collector could search a lifetime to try to put two vehicles of this pedigree together and never find it, it's that elusive," said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands, FCA North America.
"Pairing the last Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the Dodge Viper production cars - two of America's most sought-after vehicles - under the roof of Barrett-Jackson gives someone the 'last' chance to own this unique piece of automotive history, and Dodge//SRT the opportunity to raise money for a cause close to our hearts." Remember, the Demon was limited to just one model year (2018) with a production cap of 3,300 units, and the Viper, well, its legacy speaks for itself. The auction will take place on June 20-23 at the Mohegan Sun Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut.
