Last week, we reported that the first SRT Viper would be auctioned during this past weekend’s Barrett-Jackson auction in Orange Country with all the proceeds going to the Austin Hatcher Foundation. Apparently, the pleasure of driving the first model cost more than many of us anticipated; the new generation Viper sold for $300,000.
Despite this amazing sale, the SRT Viper wasn’t the most successful car at the event: the first 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible was sold for $600,000 at the auction, while a custom 2012 Mustang GT Blue Angels was sold for $400,000 last year.
As a reminder, the SRT Viper is powered by a 8.4-liter V10 engine that delivers an impressive 600 HP at 6,100 rpm and 560 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 rpm. The model will be offered in standard and GTS versions, while a GTS-R version will be offered for those who will want to enter the car in the racing competitions.
