Love him or hate him, Gas Monkey Garage’s Richard Rawlings is a huge part of the current Dodge culture. In 2014, he helped kick off the launch of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT. Recently, he made headlines when he hit the wall in a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT Widebody at the Roadkill Nights event at M1 Concourse this summer. Now he is making headlines with a HELLCAT once again.
Rawlings posted on his Instagram earlier today, stating that his 707 horsepower muscle car was stolen.
According to the Gas Monkey Garage website, Rawling’s personal 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT was taken around 2:30am last night by the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Road in Dallas, Texas.
Gas Monkey Garage released this official statement…
Last night a very special car to the garage was stolen. Our 2015 Dodge Challenger HELLCAT was stolen, a car that we have all enjoyed and watched burn through tires here at the garage. It was stolen last night around 2:30am by the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Rd in Dallas, Texas. The car belongs to Sue Rawlings and had a priceless photo of her son and her in the back.
The license plate is FCH-1300, although it could have been changed by now. The exterior of the car is black, with black interior, as well as black rims.
There will be a reward for whoever finds the car. Any and all tips will be greatly appreciated!
We need your help Gas Monkey fans, let’s get to the bottom of this and let this HELLCAT live another day to burn some rubber in our parking lot!
