After nearly 35 years, the all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is revving up and getting ready to race off of the production line; but when the first Challengers hit the market, only one of them will be painted in legendary B5 Blue.

From February 12-22, 2008, bid on this one-of-a-kind vehicle. The winning bidder will drive away in the #43 Challenger painted in B5 Blue, with black hood stripes, featuring a 6.1L SRT HEMI® V8 engine and a five-speed AutoStick transmission.

All proceeds will benefit the Victory Junction Gang, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children with chronic illness, founded by Kyle Petty, in honor of his late son, Adam.

I'm not to keen on the decal package, but maybe it would look better in person. I would probably just leave it off. This color blue is awesome!!!

That is a pretty kick ass shade of blue. The name ("B5 Blue") not so much.

B5 was the paint code for a similar blue in the 70's.

B5 = "Bright Blue Metallic" for Dodge

B5 = "Blue Fire Metallic" for Plymouth

Very hot. Love it in that color, but they can leave the stripe kit off.

VERY COOL!

Eventhough the decals are a bit tacky, I'd almost put them on the car just because of the numerical significance.

I mean, it's (hopefully) not like this is going to be a daily driver.

Sadly it may end up a daily driver if some moron with more money than brains buys one.

I love that shade of blue, I wish it wasn't the only one. It should be a daily driver. That's what cars are meant to do, be driven!

Hahaha

ZERO feedback seller too!

:scratchchin:

Note: This listing is restricted to pre-approved bidders or buyers only.

I'm assuming the people getting pre-approved might actually trust the source.

It's one-of-a-kind, and it's for Charity. Considering it ita lready pumps out 425 hp it doesn't need a powertrain upgrade. Plus that blue is awesome, so don't knock it.

The "pre-approved bidders" is worse than a zero feedback for many guys, alot of the Ebay scams state it....

I'm sure it's probably not a scam but some guy fishing for some $$$$

(for his charity)

It's also the 43rd car produced, which was Richard Petty's number.....and it's basically "Petty Blue". They aren't trying to convince people to buy this because it has "performance upgrades". If you are worried about that, then this car isn't for you. It's a one-of-a-kind collectors vehicle from the factory....how much more special does it need to be??

It could fine a very nice home in my garage, under a very nice warm car cover.

Seeing this car in B5 blue is enough to make me want one badly....

Give me something more than the color and the weak defense that its for charity and maybe I'll consider not knocking it,but until then its still lame (its a great f@#king car) and @ 150k U'd better give me more.
