Auction proceeds will go to benefit the Opportunity Village organization, which also operates in of Las Vegas, helping people with intellectual disabilities.
“The 2015 Challenger Hellcat is already guaranteed to be one of the hottest cars that will roll through the Barrett-Jackson auction lanes in decades to come,” said SRT and Dodge brand president and CEO Tim Kuniskis. “The VIN 0001 being auctioned this year is the ultimate one-of-one collectible 2015 Dodge Challenger, as Dodge is ensuring there will never be another one like it.”
Among the one-off memorabilia included with the VIN0001 is a special HEMI painted presentation box, an electronic vehicle build book and video documentary, still photos, and a Challenger SRT Hellcat Laguna Leather embossed iPad sleeve, a signed Hellcat lithograph, and a “birth certificate” for the VIN0001 car.
