How much would you pay for 707 horsepower? Dodge thinks you should shell out around 60 grand—the base price for its new 700-horse Challenger SRT Hellcat.

What about the very first 707-horse SRT Hellcat with VIN #0001? Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports, paid $825,000 for the first Hellcat at a recent auction in Las Vegas. That’s nearly 14 times the sticker price!

But there’s a catch.

All the money paid for the Stryker Red Challenger will go to Opportunity Vehicle—a charity that aids the intellectually handicapped in the Las Vegas area. You can read more about the auction, the charity, and the car at the SRT blog.
