Hulk Hogan’s iconic 1994 Dodge Viper decked out in Hulkster’s well-known red and yellow color scheme is going on the auction block for a good cause and can be yours via the upcoming Mecum Auction in Kissimmee on January 11. The 400 horsepower bad boy used to be the main attraction at Hogan’s Body Shop, the themed restaurant where the Viper was in the center of all the action.
[UPDATE] Hulk Hogan’s Viper sold today for $75,000 at the Mecum Auction and the money will go to the 50Legs charity to help children that are amputees.
Hulk announced on Facebook that the Viper will be auctioned for a great cause, helping buy prosthetics for kids.

More details on Hulkster’s prized Viper from HotCars.com:
It was featured on the front cover of Dupont Magazine in 2003, complete with its red paint job and yellow inlaid racing stripes. In 1994, the Dodge Viper was the talk of the town, and considered a return to classic muscle cars of old. The RT/10 he owns is a member of the first generation, which contained no air conditioning, no exterior mounted door handles, or key cylinders, because it was developed as a performance car. The engine weighed 700 lbs and generated a maximum power of 400 hp, allowing it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, with a max speed of 155 mph.
One trip to 50Legs.org and you’ll see that the money raised from Hulkster’s Viper is going to a cause that will go a long way towards giving kids a better life. Good on Hulkster for doing this.
