Auctioning the first Hellcat

by David Zatz on

Dodge will auction the very first production 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the most powerful and fastest muscle car ever built, during the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas 2014 auction on September 27 in Las Vegas. Proceeds will benefit the not-for-profit Opportunity Village

The special-edition 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, with a 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI® V-8 engine and 0001 vehicle identification number (VIN), has an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds at 126 mph. The donated muscle car will be the only Dodge Challenger to have a (Viper) Stryker Red exterior, hand-painted at the Dodge Viper paint facility, along with special badging, VIN documentation, and one-of-a-kind memorabilia.

The car has a TorqueFlite 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission with RPM matching downshifts, the largest brakes ever offered by Chrysler Group, and 20-by-9.5-inch wheels of lightweight matte black forged aluminum. 
The auction package includes a presentation box with a electronic vehicle build book and video documentary, still shots, vehicle footage, a Challenger SRT Hellcat embossed Laguna Leather iPad sleeve, a signed SRT Hellcat lithograph, and a “birth certificate” for VIN0001. 
Barrett-Jackson is waiving all bidding and consignment fees. A prototype 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat will be on display at the Dodge booth in Hall 3 from July 31 to Aug. 2 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
