Anybody that has set his or her sights set on the very first production model of the 2013 SRT Viper will have to pay a whole lot more for the opportunity of owning it.

SRT has announced that the Viper model that was on display at the 2012 New York Auto Show will be auctioned off with the proceeds from the sale going to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. The car will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event in Orange County so if you’re interested in making bids on it, be sure to be in attendance and have your checkbook in hand.

According to Jim Osborn, co-founder of the Austin Hatcher Foundation, the first production SRT Viper is not only an absolutely gorgeous car, but the proceeds will go to the many families faced with pediatric cancer. "We are thrilled that SRT has chosen us to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity," he said. "We are tremendously excited to see the 2013 SRT Viper. It is an amazing vehicle. We just can’t thank Mr. Gilles and his team enough."

Just in case you’ve forgotten, the new SRT Viper is powered by a new 8.4-liter all-aluminum, V-10 overhead-valve engine that delivers a total of 640 HP and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated engine in the world. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

I seriously don’t believe that Dodge had still kept the first production.

It’s only pricey because of its sentimental value anyway.

It surely has that value wherein it’s most treasured just because it’s the first production.

The one who’d win this would be lucky since this is the first Dodge Viper ever.

I have so much love for Dodge right now as they’ve done this. I hope the charity case got a lot of bids in total!

Why must it be the first production? I guess Dodge has performed a lot of enhancement on it to be able to sell well for its cause.

What has happened to this auction? I don’t think that it got sold lower than its suggested retail price.

Many will actually join that auction not only because of the Dogde Viper, but because of its charity purpose. And the person who will win such a car is truly fortunate.

Can you imagine the Dodge Viper’s first production? From the front to its back, and from one side to another, it looks truculent. Probably, because it has a fantastic engine.

This is very generous of Dodge. Anyway, I wonder whether the bidding will surpass its original price.

Another example on why I support Dodge so much. Aside from producing great innovations, they have such wide hearts too.

Austin Hatcher Foundation is very blessed to have been chosen by Dodge. They should expect a lot of possible consumers since it is apparent that this super car is truly efficient.
