The first ever edition of the most eagerly awaited automotive arrival of the year, the 702hp RAM TRX pickup truck, went on auction on March 27 featuring the chassis designation VIN001.
Fans of RAM Trucks in the region competed with their counterparts across the globe to outbid one another and get the chance to own this piece of American automotive history.
The hotly anticipated RAM TRX Launch Edition was one of the brand’s most successful model launches to date, with all 702 units, commemorating the TRX’s barrier-shattering 702-horsepower 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI V-8, made available for pre-order, selling out within 24 hours of its launch, making the RAM TRX one of the most sought-after cars of the year.
Designed bolt by bolt to significantly outperform every other truck, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX delivers a new level of performance: 0-96.6 kilometres per hour (km/h) in 4.5 seconds making it the quickest, fastest and most powerful mass-produced half-tonne pickup truck in the world.
After becoming the very first RAM TRX to roll off the production line at FCA’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Michigan, USA, this one-of-a-kind model is heading off to auctioneers Barret Jackson, where collectors and enthusiasts from across the world were able to place their bids online in a global auction event. The proceeds from the sale will be donated to United Way for Southeastern Michigan to help connect veterans and their families to housing, jobs and healthcare. -- Tradearabia News Service
