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.

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.
