Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk is auctioning off some of his personal goodies to benefit at-risk youth by providing them with free skateparks. Among the available items is his DUB Edition custom 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T.
The Dodge Challenger features 22-inch custom TIS wheels paired with Pirelli rubber. The Tony Hawk logo has been embroidered onto each of the headrests that also have 7-inch Savv monitors in the back. A Savv DVD player provides the entertainment while a Rockford Fosgate 200-watt amplifier provides plenty of power to a 10-inch subwoofer. DUB plates, inserts and chrome badges can be seen throughout the vehicle as well.
While the price seems a bit high, the custom package is supposedly valued at more than $15,000. We’re guessing those 22-inch TIS wheels and Pirelli tires make up the majority of that figure.
The auction will start on March 11 at 7 p.m. PST at www.thfauction.org.

It’s pretty hard to make the Dodge Challenger even more eye-catching, but a new color, dubbed “Green With Envy”, should help it attract the attention of bystanders and the ire of other motorists.
Available on the R/T Classic (white black or white stripes) or the SRT8 392 (black stripes only), the new getup is supposed to recall the glory days of Mopar muscle, when V8 bruisers were available in every hue of the Hi-Liter rainbow. For our money, it’s hard to beat the all-American white/blue stripes combo, but someone suffering from a bad mid-life crisis is bound to go for the green.
Dodge has revealed pics of its all new Mopar ’10 Challenger special edition. For those with short memories for special edition muscle cars, the Mopar ’10 Challenger is pretty identical to a standard Challenger R/T, but gets a cold-air intake, front and rear strut tower braces, 20″ forged wheels, hood pins, unique badging. The car will only be painted in Brilliant Black with Red, Blue or Silver striping. Mopar ’10 is $38,000 for an automatic transmission and $39,000 for a manual transmission. Both prices include $750 for destination.
