Posted by: admin In: Main ()
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is auctioning off a one-of-a-kind Chevrolet Camaro to benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell will drive the car onto the stage of the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event in Las Vegas for the Sept. 25 auction.
The car, which was created from a partnership between the UFC and Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas, features a supercharged 650-horsepower engine, custom exhaust, lowering suspension kit, 2,000-watt sound system, custom paint, and UFC-fight-glove seats with suede headliner.
The event, which takes place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, airs live on the SPEED channel.
“We are excited that we can help raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund by auctioning off the UFC Camaro at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event,” UFC President Dana White stated. “We appreciate the sacrifices the men and women of our armed forces make on a daily basis, and this auction is just another way to continue our support.”

Ten limited-edition Camaros were created.
Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle officials told MMAjunkie.com the UFC Camaros take approximately two months each to produce at a cost of approximately $70,000.
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing support for the families of U.S. military personnel injured or lost in performance of their duty. Additionally, the fund works to assist our wounded warriors by providing facilities and services that ensure injured military personnel receive the best possible treatment our nation has to offer.
