The first production 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat sold for $825,000 during the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas 2014 auction Saturday.
“The VIN0001 muscle car was not only one of the hottest cars that rolled through the Barrett-Jackson auction lanes, it is also the ultimate collectible 2015 Dodge Challenger as Dodge is ensuring there will never be another one like it,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge and SRT brands president and CEO, in a statement.
The auctioned Challenger Hellcat included a special 6.2-liter supercharger engine cover and a “Hemi Orange” painted presentation containing an iPad with a video documentary that shows the step-by-step building of the car.
Money raised from the Challenger Hellcat auction benefited Opportunity Village, a not-for-profit organization that serves people with significant intellectual disabilities in the Las Vegas area. The Engelstad Family Foundation of Las Vegas matched the auction price, bringing the grand total raised for Opportunity Village to $1.65 million.
The “most powerful muscle car ever,” as it comes billed, will be EPA rated at 13 miles per gallon in the city, 22 mpg on the highway for a combined 16 mpg for the eight-speed automatic-transmission version. For the manual shifter, deduct 1 mpg on the highway.
The Hellcat, with a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 engine, will get better highway gas mileage than a $425,845 12-cylinder Lamborghini Aventador roadster, which comes in at 10 mpg in the city, 16 mpg on the highway and 12 mpg overall, Chrysler points out. he 2014 Ford Mustang with a 5.8-liter V-8 engine achieves 15 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg overall. The Chevrolet Camaro with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine racks up 12 mpg city, 18 highway and 14 overall.
“The new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the perfect street / strip muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge and SRT Brands. “As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there’s nothing else that even comes close.”
The carbon footprint of making a car is immensely complex. Ores have to be dug out of the ground and the metals extracted. These have to be turned into parts. Other components have to be brought together: rubber tires, plastic dashboards, paint, and so on. All of this involves transporting things around the world. The whole lot then has to be assembled, and every stage in the process requires energy. The companies that make cars have offices and other infrastructure with their own carbon footprints, which we need to somehow allocate proportionately to the cars that are made.
With this in mind, unless you do very high mileage or have a real gas-guzzler, it generally makes sense to keep your old car for as long as it is reliable – and to look after it carefully to extend its life as long as possible. If you make a car last to 200,000 miles rather than 100,000, then the emissions for each mile the car does in its lifetime may drop by as much as 50%, as a result of getting more distance out of the initial manufacturing emissions.

So many vehicles these days come with a sunroof. Most buyers know that the sunroof can cause the price of the vehicle to go up quite a bit. So lets talk a little bit about the different kinds. Pop-up sunroofs, spoiler sunroofs, inbuilt sunroofs (moonroofs), removable sunroofs and folding sunroofs. Most folding sunroofs come equipped on SUVS, such as Jeep or Hummer. In-built’s are installed on many makes and models, as well as removable and pop-up. This car, the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8, for instance has an inbuilt sunroof (moonroof). So instead of the glass slanting over the top of the car, it slides in between two panels. This one also can vent if wanted. So if a sunroof sounds appealing to you check this car and many others out at Woody’s Automotive Group in Chillicothe, MO!! For hours and directions click here.
