A few kilometers later, the trailer was abandoned, found by the police the next morning. The modified Challenger was only found later by the police, when the chase began. In fact, according to the owner of the car, he was found twice, both times followed by a police search.

In the second chase, then, the Challenger was destroyed when a thief threw it into a police car. Curious information: there were 14 cars in total chasing the thief, who reached more than 240 km / h with the model. Due to the risk of accidents involving other people on the highway, the police stopped the search, but the thief abandoned the car in the garage shortly after, where it was found, as it was badly damaged in the front.

The muscle car was customized with carbon fiber parts, new wheels and a better suspension system, equipped with the Scat Pack and its upgraded V8 to produce more than 700 hp of power.
