UFC auctioning off custom car to benefit Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund

PRESS RELEASE / Las Vegas, NV (USA) – UFC fans will have the opportunity to bid on one of the hottest cars ever made on Friday, September 24th at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has teamed up with Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas to build a limited-edition UFC Camaro complete with 650 super-charged horsepower and one-of-a-kind features sure to grab the attention of UFC fans and car aficionados alike.

The UFC Camaro (Lot #392) will cross the Barrett-Jackson block during prime time at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center and will be driven by none other than UFC Hall of Famer Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell. The winning bidder will bring home a UFC limited-edition Camaro that features a supercharged, 650 horsepower engine, custom exhaust, lowering suspension kit, 2000-watt sound system, custom paint and UFC fight glove seats with suede headliner.

SPEED television will carry the UFC Camaro Auction live on Sept. 24.

Proceeds raised at the UFC Camaro auction will benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing support for the families of United States military personnel injured or lost in performance of their duty. Likewise, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund works to assist our wounded warriors by providing facilities and services that ensure that injured military personnel receive the best possible treatment our nation has to offer.

These privately-funded facilities include the Center for the Intrepid, a state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas that provides those with severe extremity injuries, severe burns and amputees the best opportunity to regain their ability to live and work productively; and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) in Bethesda, Maryland, a $65 million, 72,000 sq. ft., advanced center dedicated to the diagnosis and clinical care of service members suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI), post traumatic stress (PTS) and other complex psychological health issues.

“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 said. “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.”

“It’s great to be a part of this project,” Adam Bonaldi, Vice President of Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas, said. “When you see big names like Barrett Jackson and the UFC coming together to make this possible for the Intrepid Fallen Hero’s fund, it’s important to mention all the smaller companies and individuals who helped along the way. I would like to say thank you to everyone who made this possible. It’s very rewarding to know the car will be crossing the block in just a couple of days as a culmination of many great companies along with tremendous individual efforts. I know whoever buys the car will not only be giving back to families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, but they will take home a piece of Automotive Art that will stand the test of time.”

The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event runs from September 23rd – September 25th at the Mandalay Bay Resort.

    I wanna see the interior and the guts. If it was nice enough to make the Barrett-Jackson, it’s gotta be pretty impressive.

    I love it when MMA promotions do things like this. There are still too many people out there who think MMA or “ultimate fighting” is nothing but a bunch of barbarians trying to crush each others face for the amusement of depraved, blood thirsty fans, and this type of move should make at least a few of them rethink their position. And more importantly, anything that helps out the men and women who give not just their time, but also their health and possibly lives to protect this country and give the rest of us the opportunity to live lives relatively free of the fear of attack deserve absolutely anything and everything we can do for them.
