Sound like a lot of money? Well, it’s a lot of car. Making 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque its more powerful than a Lamborghini Aventador. In fact, only a handful of ultra-exotic cars make more power than this Dodge.

All of the proceeds from the sale on VIN0001 will go to benefit Opportunity Village, a not-for-proffit organization in Vegas that has been helping adults with disabilities since 1954.

Anyone looking to purchase VIN0002 will be able to save quite a chunk of change, with the factory suggested retail price a more reasonable $59,995.
