Hellcat Durango Stolen Before Production Even Starts

Pre-production Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat swiped

  • Pre-production supercharged SUV stolen from employee driveway

  • 710 hp SUV likely stripped for parts


Vehicle theft is nothing new, even from the lots at the assembly plant where they’re put together. But this might be one of the most impressive yet, a Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat that was stolen before factory production had even started. Right out of the driveway of an FCA employee who did not have a fun conversation when the got back to the office.

It was first posted to a Facebook group that focuses on stolen vehicles in Detroit, with more than 34,000 members. We saw the post via MoparInsiders, and it said that the 2021 Durango Hellcat was “started and gone within three minutes of entering the vehicle.” Two people and a scout car with driver drove up and grabbed the vehicle right out of an employee’s driveway at 4:41 am Sunday morning.

It’s not likely that this one will be recovered since stolen vehicles are often sent to chop shops to have their best parts stripped. In this case, that means the 6.2L supercharged Dodge Hellcat V8, along with the body kit, 22-inch wheels, and the special interior. The post said it had a Uconnect ping, giving authorities a bit of help, but we haven’t seen updates since then. Whatever is left will likely be abandoned somewhere in the city.

It’s one way to get an exclusive first drive of the 710 hp, 11-second super SUV that can take you and six friends far faster than most of them probably want to ever go, but it’s not one we’d recommend.
