AUBURN HILLS — The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will receive $300,000 from auction proceeds of the first production-model 2013 SRT Viper GTS, following the Barrett-Jackson Orange County, Calif. event this past weekend.

To support children and families dealing with the challenges of pediatric cancer, Chrysler Group’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand teamed with The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer and the American Le Mans Series, by auctioning the world-class supercar.

The flagship performance machine of SRT returns with more power and performance from its all-aluminum, mid-engine 8.4-liter V-10 that delivers an estimated 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. Production of the 2013 SRT Viper begins later this year at the historic home of the Viper — Detroit’s Conner Avenue Assembly Plant.

“We’re extremely grateful to team with SRT and Barrett-Jackson on this auction effort,” said Dr. Jim Osborn, co-founder and chairman of the board of directors, Austin Hatcher Foundation. “The monies raised here will allow us to continue developing and funding services that empower families to live happy, meaningful and successful lives as pediatric cancer survivors.”
