Bidders get ready. Chrysler announced today that the first all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger vehicles off the Brampton Assembly Plant production line will be auctioned, with proceeds benefiting local charities.

All for charities

Dodge will be premiering their brand new retro muscle car at the Februari Chicago Motor Show. But before the HEMI V8 powered Challenger can make its global show debut, the first three units will be auctioned for charities. The units will be Dodge Challenger SRT8 models and will have a numbered dash plaque.

  • Dodge Challenger No. 1 will be auctioned at the famous Barret-Jackson Collector Car Auction (37th annual edition this year) and all proceedings will benefit notMYkid.
  • Dodge Challenger No. 2 will benefit United Way of Southeastern Michigan and the auction will take place at a private auction for Dodge dealers and will commence September 26th already!
  • Dodge Challenger No. 3 will be auctioned through eBay, its starting date will be announced later.
