First SRT Viper To Be Auctioned For Charity

SRT Viper GTS1 at First SRT Viper To Be Auctioned For Charity

SRT and Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will auction off the first 2013 SRT Viper, the one on display at the New York Auto Show, at Barrett -Jackson Orange County auction to benefit the foundation’s programs. The Austin Hatcher Foundation is the American Le Mans Series official charity, where the new Viper will be racing with its GTS-R version.

So the mighty Viper might look all angry and spiteful and dangerous, but it has a soft and kind soul that wants to help children. That is lovely. That also makes the first Viper quite a special car. So if you’re bidding, bid high. Your money will be put into good use.

We are thrilled that SRT has chosen us to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity,” said Dr. Jim Osborn Co-founder of the Austin Hatcher Foundation. “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 be auctioned at Barrett- Jackson Orange County to benefit the many families faced with pediatric cancer. We just can’t thank Mr. Gilles and his team enough.”

The new SRT Viper comes not only with an all-new design, which in places harkens back to the old Vipers, it also features new technologies such as traction control and an infotainment system. It’s easier to live with and easier to enjoy, but still pretty damn challenging thanks to a massive 8.4 liter V10 engine that churns out 640-hp.
