Very First Dodge Challenger Hellcat Sells for a Mind-Boggling Price
I thought when Dodge announced that the new Hellcat Challenger was only going to cost $60,990 brand new, my head was going to explode. They somehow managed to shove as much power under the hood as an exotic supercar, but kept it actually obtainable. Yesterday, my head did explode after I heard what someone paid for the very first one. $825,000. Yup, more than 13 times the base MSRP for a brand new Hellcat.

Obviously, it was in an auction setting, and this huge sum isn’t without purpose. All the proceeds will go to Opportunity Village, a Las Vegas-based institution helping those with intellectual disabilities — and that’s a really, really great thing.
Being 13 times more expensive, though, it does come with a few extra fun bits. 'Supercharged' badges here and there, documentation, memorabilia, and an iPad mini fully loaded with some sweet vids and photos of the car they just bought.

Lest you forget, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat comes with a 707-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 and holds the title of the world’s most powerful muscle car. Probably one of the most expensive new muscle cars ever sold at auction, too.
