First 50th Anniversary Hurst/Viper Sold For $275,000
The company managed to sell the golden vehicle for the price of $275,000 at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction, Scottsdale, Arizona and promised to donate the money to charity, Autoblog reported. The beneficiary of the proceeds is Victory Junction, a year-round camping facility for children for chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses.
The very first model of its kind included an adjustable Motion Sport Suspension with Eibach springs, a custom Corsa exhaust system and a fresh set of Hurst black chrome wheels sized 19-inches up front and 20-inches in the rear. But probably the most attractive was the custom dash-mounted plaque with the new owner's name engraved on it. That being said, nobody will have any doubts about the buyer's identity.
As we have already reported only 50 of these cars are expected to be produced by the Hurst Performance Vehicle Group in partnership with OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), but nothing is known about their price. We do hope they won't get the inspiration from the auction price for the rest of these vehicles built in limited edition. But as you probably imagine, those who want to benefit from unique cars must pay some big bucks for this privilege.
However, we refrain from other comments and we take this opportunity to wish the company “Happy Birthday!” on behalf of the Autoevolution team!
