You there, with your fancy, milquetoast 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat. You’ve got a weak car. A car that can best be described as “lukewarm.” Maybe it’s even a bit slow. That’s because there is a new, better car out there now. It’s the Dodge Hellcat X, and it’s an 805-horsepower pile of triplecharged delirious gibberish.

Yeah, tripledcharged. Some nut at Walsh Motorsports looked at the supercharged Hellcat, and decided it wasn’t good enough, so they added twin turbochargers as well. And an “X.”

This thing drives great, I’m sure.

And because no insanity machine is right and proper without an insane price, you’ll probably be pleased to learn that it can all be yours, PLUS a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T with the 440 Magnum V-8 engine and a bunch of other go-fast goodies for the eye-watering price of...

$3.

Yes, only three dollars. Of course, you’ll still have to pay $40,000 in taxes on the two cars, but that’s because the three dollar price covers one ticket, in a raffle for the Dream Giveaway charity organization. Proceeds from the drawings benefit New Beginning Children’s Homes, which “provides 24 hour residential care to children who have been victims of family violence, neglect, and or physical abuse,” according to the charity’s website.

The Hellcat X is named after the XF6F Hellcat, the twincharged prototype for the original fighter that dominated the skies over the Pacific in World War II.

Dream Giveaway says that the 805-horsepower, 800 pound-feet of torque Hellcat X will be faster than a regular Hellcat, they just haven’t been able to test it out yet.

They do not say, however, if that’s because they haven’t been able to find anyone brave enough to test it out yet.
