If you’re a Mopar fan, the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Northeast auction will have the ultimate lot containing two pieces of Dodge history!
Dodge’s Ultimate Last Chance is a one-of-a-kind auction lot being offered through Barrett-Jackson Northeast in June. It is literally the last chance to own brand-new, never-registered examples of the Viper and Challenger SRT Demon.
The last Viper (VIN ending in 731948) rolled off Chrysler’s Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, which is now the Conner Center Museum, in 2017. True to the original 1992 Viper, this 2017 Dodge Viper wears the iconic Viper Red paint job, and it had optional carbon fiber exterior accents and black Alcantara leather seats inside. To set this special car apart, it was also fitted with a VIN badge on the instrument panel and an authentication kit to prove its status as the final Viper.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon was the ultimate expression for Dodge’s performance and racing heritage, and it was designed as a one-model-year car with production limited to 3,300 (3,000 to be sold in the U.S. and 300 in Canada). This Challenger is also painted in Viper Red with a black interior mixing cloth and Alcantara leather. It has the rear seat delete option and comes with a custom Demon car cover and the Demon Crate. It, too, has a VIN badge on the instrument panel and the Demon authentication package with build sheets and Certicard.
Dodge says that this Viper was never meant to be in private hands and was originally destined to join the Dodge Heritage Collection ? which, ironically, is now housed in the Viper’s former assembly plant ? while the final SRT Demon “took a lot of work” to obtain.
Both cars will cross the block during Barrett-Jackson Northeast in Uncasville, CT, which runs from June 20-23. This chance to own the final examples of the 645-horsepower Viper and 840-horsepower Challenger SRT Demon will be a high-priced lot, and all of the proceeds will go to United Way! The first 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat (VIN 001) alone raised $1.65 million for charity, and was sold to Rick Hendrick.
