Original: A baby blue Dodge Challenger SRT8 is set to be auctioned off on eBay next month as part of a cross promotional charity event being run by Chrysler and the Victory Junction Gang Camp charity organization. This is car number 43 to come off the production line, the odd number representing the old racing number of Mopar legend Richard Petty and leaving a connection between the car and Kyle Petty’s Victory Junction Gang charity.
This will be the only Challenger SRT8 to be painted in the B5 Blue color scheme so there should be some interesting bids. You may recall that Challenger number one went under the hammer at the Barret-Jackson auctions last weekend for an amazing $400,000.
The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 features the familiar 6.1L HEMI V8 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, a race-inspired interior and an exterior design that picks up many retro cues from the original muscle cars of yesteryear. The final production models, both the standard version and the performance SRT8 car, will be making their worldwide debut on the 6th of next month. In the meantime, you can head over to eBay and check out the auction page.
