Last Dodge Viper and Demon to be joint-auctioned for charity
With a combined power output of over 1400bhp, final-ever examples of record-setting muscle cars will go under hammer as a pair for charity
Barrett-Jackson is to auction the final-ever examples of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 2017 Viper as a pair, to raise money for charity.
One hundred percent of the ‘The Ultimate Last Chance’ sale price will go to the United Way charity, which aims to secure a quality of health, education and financial stability across 45 countries.

The Demon is the last of the 3300-strong production run that was limited to the 2018 model year only. Boasting 830bhp, it is labelled as the ‘first and only purpose-built, street-legal production drag car’. It can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 2.3 seconds, and its 9.65-second quarter-mile time is a record for a production car.
With its 8.4-litre V10, the Viper produces 640bhp, and the sale of the final example comes after Dodge ended the model’s production last year. This model is styled in homage to the first-generation Viper RT/10, with its Viper Red exterior and black interior.
Steve Beahm, head of passenger car brands, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA North America, said: ‘An avid collector could search a lifetime to try to put two vehicles of this pedigree together, and never find it, it’s that elusive.’
He continued: ‘Pairing the last Challenger SRT Demon and Viper production cars – two of America’s most sought-after vehicles – under the roof of Barrett-Jackson gives someone the ‘last’ chance to own this unique piece of automotive history, and Dodge//SRT the opportunity to raise money for a cause close to our hearts.’
In 2014, Barrett-Jackson and Dodge teamed up to auction a unique Challenger SRT Hellcat. VIN0001 raised $1.65 million for charity – a then-record for the auction house.
