A Brand New Dodge Challenger Hellcat Was Trashed After Only 18 Miles

A wrecked Dodge Challenger Hellcat in B5 Blue with only 18 miles (less than 30km) on the odo has popped up for sale.

There’s no word on what happened, but if our eyes aren’t playing mind games on us and the airbags did not deploy, then this probably happened when the car was turned off, possibly during transport or when it was parked. 

The smashed Hellcat currently resides with Cleveland Power & Performance, which specializes in custom cars, salvage rebuilds and restomods, among others.

While the American muscle car has definitely seen better days, a closer inspection at the pictures shows that the interior looks immaculate. Furthermore, aside from the low mileage, the engine bay also looks unharmed, which means that 6.2-liter 707 HP engine can still make someone happy.

You can replace doors, fenders, windows, and even the wonky rear axle, but that crumpled roof and A-, B- and C-pillars could mean it’s the end of the road for this Hellcat and the only salvation is a transplant.

    I wonder what it costs to transplant all that hardware into another Challenger. Or better yet, a 300.

    maybe the owner is a cry baby and had a tantrum because the Demon is out.

      Common blasphemy.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Doesn’t look that much worse. Challengers look their best crushed.

    Hey you guys, do you know that by remove “that crumpled roof, and B- and C-pillars…” you can make a convertible.

  • pxsupply

    Would it fit in a Jeep Wrangler?

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      Enough money it could fit in anything.

    • Benjamin B.

      Needs more torque. I’d put a GM LS engine.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    No surprise, just look at copart.com and you’ll see more low milage exotic totals than a Hellcat.

  • dumblikeyou2

    It was FCA’s fault for making a car capable of going in a straight line only. It’s called a challenger for a reason.

  • Ron

    I bet it was caused by low tire pressure. 🙂

    • JonPaul

      I bet it was caused by an idiot!


    this was one of the cars that was damaged by the tornado that hit that texas FCA dealership.

  • S3XY

    That interior looks atrociously cheap

    • Benjamin B.

      what do you expect

  • psiqtas

    A test drive went wrong?

  • Benjamin B.

    The automatic transmission shifter looks bent.

    Looks like mother nature damage to me
