Barrett Jackson auto auction in Las Vegas last week was no surprise as it rolled out the SRT Hellcat. The muscle car was sold for a whopping $825,000 when the concluding gavel sounded.

GM guy Rick Hendrick, well-known car collector and NASCAR team owner placed the winning bid. With that, the Hellcat Challenger was able to raise $1.65 million dollars for the Opportunity Charity. What makes the bid special is that this is the largest ever contribution from a single car in the history.
