“We are extremely grateful for this opportunity with SRT, Chrysler, and Barrett Jackson,” said Jim Osborn, chairman of the Austin Hatcher Foundation. “Monies raised through the auction of the 2013 SRT Viper will directly fund services that empower families to live happy, meaningful, and successful lives as pediatric cancer survivors.”

The new 2013 SRT Viper is expected to retail for $135,000.

Proceeds from the auction will go to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.

Refresher: Power for the 2013 SRT Viper comes from an all-aluminum, mid-engine 8.4-liter V10 that makes 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission with a shorter throw shifter, closer gear ratios and a final drive ratio that has been shortened to 3.55 from 3.07.
