Hellcat-Powered MX-5 Miata Hits the Block at Barrett-Jackson

For the power-hungry enthusiast

Recently the Mazda MX-5 Miata got a nice infusion of power, but there are some out there whose lust for power just doesn't end. Enter this heavily modified orange 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata that's up for sale, which has a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat models.

When it first debuted on the Hellcat twins, this engine made 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque but has since seen upgrades to increase output. In some iterations, a different supercharger bumps total output to 797 hp or 808 hp and 707 lb-ft or 770 lb-ft.

Needless to say, 707 hp is more than adequate in a small rear-drive roadster like the Miata. This particular example also comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Other modifications include Wilwood brakes, a modified suspension specifically for V-8-swapped Miatas, a Frozen Boost heat exchanger, a Rywire CSF radiator, AN steel-braided lines, Fore 8.8 rear differential, and a 3.07 welded final drive. Inside, this car has an AEM CD5 display, a Sparco steering wheel, and a BSI racing roll cage. It also has a special Treasure Coast Miata hard top and Konig 15x10 wheels.

Nicknamed the "Hellcat Miata" or "Hell Kitty," this thoroughly modified roadster will be available at Barrett-Jackson's Las Vegas auction. The 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas sale inundates Sin City with more than 650 collector cars October 3-5 at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort.
