2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat #0001 Sells For $825,000

2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Barrett Jackson (640x427) Dodge auctioned off the first production Hellcat Challenger at the recent Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction. When the gavel pounded, Rick Hendrick was the winning bidder shelling out $825,000 for the 707 horsepower screamer. 100 percent of the proceeds of this auction benefitted the Las Vegas charity Opportunity Village. The Engelstad Foundation of Las Vegas also matched the winning bid with their donation of $825,000 bringing the grand total raised to 1.65 million dollars. This auction raised more money than any other charity auctioned car in Barrett-Jackson history. Even more good news was that Barrett-Jackson waved their usual fees so all of the proceeds went to Opportunity Village.
