Dodge Hellcat stolen from TV star Richard Rawlings is found intact

Black Challenger Hellcat was stolen in September 2018, but found abandoned by a member of the public

Richard Rawlings stolen Dodge Hellcat foundRichard Rawlings, star of the Discovery Channel’s Fast N’ Loud show, has many performance and muscle cars in his collection. However, that did not stop him from being upset when one was stolen last year.

The black Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was taken in September 2018 from the Dallas area, with Rawlings asking social media to help find the car. This particular Hellcat was used by his then wife, and had sentimental items left inside the glovebox when stolen.

Incredibly, despite the 707 horsepower Challenger Hellcat worth a substantial amount in parts alone, the car was found and recovered in one piece.

Rawlings took to social media again to announce the good news, showing off the fact that the Hellcat was finally back home.

According to the official Gas Monkey Garage website, the car had been spotted by an eagle-eyed member of the public in the Dallas area.

The local man made contact with Rawlings, who was delighted to be able to have the black muscle car safely returned to his possession.

FIlming commitments for Fast N’ Loud, now returning for a 15th series, meant Rawlings was unable to spend too long being sentimental. He did promise to “sort this all out with the insurance company” before jetting off for a week long vacation, though

The latest series of the popular TV show is expected to start airing to Discovery Channel viewers next month. Rawlings has already promised that the new episode will be even bigger and more dramatic than before.
