Bidding Farewell: Challenger SRT Demon Donates $700K

Donated Proceeds to Great Cause

An opportunity to get your hands on the much-wanted Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 earned $700,000 for charity in the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas bidding last weekend. Initially sold for $400,000, the victor of this competition generously donated the car back to be auctioned again without delay.

The second round of offers brought in another $300,000, aggregating to a full amount of $700,000 to be given to Kristi House, a Floridian non-profit that provides expertise in healing for kids after trauma, amongst various activities.

Nicole Kidman, the Oscar-winning actress, tried to stir up some thrill by putting herself on auction. The ‘Days of Thunder’ starlet graciously allocated some coveted VIP passes to her hubby Keith Urban’s shows – in case having Dodge’s strongest motor vehicle didn’t suffice.

The successful bidder will acquire an extraordinary motor vehicle. The Challenger SRT Demon 170 represents the last model of the venerable performance car and the epitome of a V8-powered Dodge. Subsequently, the upcoming updates on the Charger and Challenger must resign themselves to forfeiting the widely beloved V8 format.

Filled with E85 ethanol, the awe-inspiring Demon 170 boasts a remarkable 1,025 horsepower and a titanic 945 lb-ft of torque, powering it to scorching fast speeds. Reaching 0-60 mph in just 1.66 seconds, this beastly machine surpasses even the most modern electric supercars.

Apart from that, the fortunate purchaser will have a variety of Dodge’s extensive array of colours to choose from or – even better – could ask for a exclusive painting job not provided to any other customers. This would essentially turn it into something that is one-of-a-kind, further increasing its worth as a collector’s item.

In the event that a fortunate victor already harbors a 2018 Demon in their carport, Dodge will joyfully match the VIN of the Challenger Demon 170 provided the distinguishing proof is as yet accessible. We imagine that the proprietor will be able to select everything they desired out of the many available alternatives.

For those looking to splurge, Dodge offers a $5,995 Premium Pack. It includes an 18-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, helpful driver-assisting features, and both heated and ventilated seats with sumptuous Laguna leather covers. Alternatively, if you would like to add a sunroof to your purchase, Dodge will begrudgingly accommodate – but at the considerable cost of $9,995. The company purposely makes it expensive in order to deter customers from choosing such a weighty indulgence.

We are overjoyed that generous bids were made for the Demon 170, continuing a remarkable tradition. In May, the debut Corvette E-Ray was sold for an astonishing $1.1 million. Similarly, last year someone donated a half million dollars to a philanthropic cause in exchange for an opulent Cadillac Escalade-V.
