SRT announced earlier this year that it would be auctioning off the first production model of the 2013 Viper GTS and so the vehicle was recently auctioned at Barrett-Jackson’s Orange County auction.

Aside from the Viper GTS itself, adding to the appeal of the auction for wealthy and philanthropic bidders was that proceeds from it would be donated to the Austin Hatcher Foundation that helps families deal with the trauma and tragedy associated with children suffering from pediatric cancer.

During the auction, bidding for the Viper passed the six figure mark quickly to $250, 0000. Once reached, an SRT Track Experience and a trip to this year’s Petit Le Mans were included for the winning bidder. However, the Viper’s 640 horsepower V10 and carbon fibre bodywork was sold for the final price of $300, 000.
