Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler’s CEO, is putting up a one-of-a-kind Dodge up for auction. His customized 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 will be available to bid upon at the Barrett-Jackson event April 4th through the 6th.
The Challenger is simply amazing. It’s the kind of beast you’d expect from someone at the head of Chrysler. Marchionne had it given a black paint job along with “Dark Charcoal” racing stripes. Proving that it’s good to be the kind, those stripes were put on by the hands of the SRT studio and painters from the Chrysler Group’s Product Design Office.
According to Edmunds, the people putting this together for the CEO wanted the special Challenger to have “a sinister look from every angle, so the tailamps have been “smoked” and the iconic 392 Hemi fender badges have been re-created in gloss and satin black finishes.”
Chrysler will also be throwing in the latest crate engine from Mopar, the 540-horsepower Hemi V8, along with the car to the winner. The custom Challenger also comes with a Mopar-adjustable coil-over suspension kit and exhaust system. The wheels are 20-inch and finished in matte black.
To top it all off, Marchionne made sure to include his autograph on the car. The proceeds from the auctioning off will be going to the United Way for Southeastern Michigan.
