Presented by Jay Leno and Benefiting the USO
Recalling the iconic Dodge Challenger of 1970–1974 and based on the 2006 Detroit Auto Show concept car that created a firestorm of demand, the new-generation Challenger became a production reality for 2008. The new Challenger marks an eye-catching design and engineering tour de force with stunning performance. All first-year Challengers for 2008 were built to top-level SRT8 specifications, equipped with a five-speed Autostick transmission.
The entire US production run of 6,400 cars was pre-sold to America’s premier car collectors, including this example, owned from new by comedian and entertainment icon Jay Leno. Mr. Leno has generously pledged the Challenger’s sale proceeds to benefit the work of the USO and its longstanding mission to lift the spirits of forward-deployed troops, military families, wounded warriors, troops in transition, and families of the fallen. The USO’s extensive range of programs are delivered at hundreds of places worldwide. They provide a touch of home through centers at airports and military bases in the US and abroad, and through top-quality entertainment and innovative programs and services. Nonprofit and nonpolitical, the USO is, and always will be, about our troops. Accordingly, the offering of this true American original by Mr. Leno provides an ideal way to support his and the USO’s staunch commitment to them.
