As Seen At Gas Monkey, Hellcat Miata To Auction

There’s a real Field of Dreams vibe to Gas Monkey Garage and that since we built it, cars will come. One such car to make an appearance on its trip out west to appear on Hoonigan’s Daily Transmission is this Hellcat powered Miata MX-5.

 

Seemingly defying physics in terms of both the Hellcat engine being able to fit into a Miata and the power it provides to it, this one-of-a-kind custom is headed to Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction. The base of what you would be getting is a 1999 Mazda Miata convertible, but it’s what’s under through the hood that draws the eye. Yes, that’s a 707hp 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine peaking out the hood this tiny Miata. In order to better accommodate the added weight and power it’s also been outfitted with a V8 roadster suspension and Wilwood brakes to slow its roll… or aid in creating a pretty sick burnout.

 

Other additions have been made such as a Sparco seat and steering wheel and Konig wheels, but let’s face it, nothing but the engine is going to influence the new owner’s decision. And a new owner there will be as this “Hell Kitty,” as it’s known, is being offered with no reserve on Thursday, October 3rd.
