First new SRT Viper going to auction for charity image

The first 2013 SRT Viper, which was on display during the 2012 New York Auto Show, will head for auction and the funds raised will be donated for charity.

According to the car manufacturer, the first SRT Viper from the new generation, which was officially presented to the public at this year’s New York Auto Show, will be auction and the funds raised from this sale will be donated to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.

“We are thrilled that SRT has chosen us to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity. We are tremendously excited to see the 2013 SRT Viper. It is an amazing vehicle. We are also very excited that the first production Viper will be auctioned at Barett-Jackson Orange County to benefit the many families faced with pediatric cancer. We just can’t thank Mr. Gilles and his team enough”, said the co-founder of the Austin Hatcher Foundation, Jim Osborn.

As a small reminder, the new generation of the Viper has just lost the Dodge brand for the company’s performance brand, the SRT or Street and Racing Technology, and the supercar is powered by an 8.4 liter V10 engine, which is developing a total output of 640 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 814 Nm (600 lb-ft), mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
