Challenger for Shriners hospital for Children
Shriners Hospitals for Children to auction Challenger SRT8
Nate_Martinez, Motor Trend Mag.
The New England Dodge Dealer association has donated one of the 6,400 sold out 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8s to be auctioned online this fall to benefit the renowned Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Car number 248 of the debut allotment features a 6.1-liter Hemi V-8 pumping out a stout 425 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque and will be on the online auction block in the coming months. The gracious donation is made all the more heartwarming in a world plauged with steep dealer markups on hot models. While the hammer-down price for this Challenger will likely fetch quite a bit over MSRP, the money will be going to a worthy cause, rather than lining a dealer's pockets. Well done.
Shriners Hospitals for Children was established in 1919 and has since grown into a 22 hospital organization spanning throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada. The international health care system provides specialty pediatric care, innovative research and advanced teaching programs for children.
