Way back at the start of June, it was revealed that SRT was set to auction off a custom 2013 SRT Viper GTS built to honour Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne. All proceeds of the auction would then benefit the Sons of Italy Foundation. Now, it has been announced that this one-of-a-kind SRT Viper GTS will again hit the auction blocks in January next year at Russo and Steele’s 2014 Scottsdale auction.
The car is being sold on behalf of the Sons of Italy Foundation and will be just one of over 700 of the world’s greatest sports cars, muscle cars, exotics, customs and hot rods to hit the auction block at the event. Unsurprisingly, the proceeds generated by the sale will head straight to the Sons of Italy Foundation. For those that didn’t know, the Sons of Italy Foundation aims to give assistance, aid and to improve the general life of Italian Americans. Such assistance comes in a range of different forms, such as providing scholarships for students as well as relief services to help those affected by natural and man-made disasters.
The car has driven a total of 5 miles and will hit the auction block with no reserve price. Making this particular 2013 SRT Viper GTS unique is its white Avorio Perla exterior completed with black vapour chrome wheels. Inside, the car features Sepia colored seats complemented with red, white and green accents representing the Italian flag. Additionally, the car then features a green, white and red ‘GTS’ logo.
Under the hood, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS to be auctioned off features the same 8.4-liter V10 engine present in the regular SRT Viper. As a consequence, the car produces 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque meaning the American supercar can launch to 62 mph in the low 3 second range and onto an impressive top speed of 206 mph.
