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 15×10 wheels.
