Take this Dodge Challenger Hellcat for sale on Copart. The black, 6.2L V8 looks to be in top shape when looking through the grainy, low resolution pictures that show the vehicle. Look through the description though, and it tells a very different story.

This car made it a mere 41 miles before it was hit by a hail storm, which caused thousands of dollars worth of damage, writing the vehicle off. The car is completely operational, but has been inflicted with lots of tiny little dents on every single body panel, meaning that each panel will either need the dents hammering out or completely replacing.

Would it be worth purchasing for all the tiny dents in the body panels? - Image from Copart

The Challenger Hellcat produces 707BHP, get to 60MPH in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 202MPH. With a "buy it now" price of $48,000, that's a $17,000 discount on the price of a new Hellcat! The question is, would it be worth it for the hundreds of tiny dents in the body panels?

  • Buy it, dont repair it, tell people its like the dimples on a golf ball, adds speed!

  • Mythbusters claimed golf balls flew farther because of the tiny divots on the suface of the ball. They applied this technology to a car via a clay overlay (a bench mark set with a smooth clay surface, weight retained by putting divots carved from the clay into a box and set in the back seat)

    They did see an improvement in MPG.

    So....long story to say that the tiny hail damage marks might improve mpg on a massively powered 707 HP HellCat....

  • Even golf balls have dents of dimples on them to make them fly faster and straighter and farther - maybe the dents on the car work the same way :D

  • With the finish quality of any GM product, how could anyone tell the difference?

  • Might be an aerodynamic help, like the dimples on a golf ball, lol

    • Mythbusters actually did an episode testing that exact thing and from what I recall it didn't prove a super significant difference.

    • Going from 26mpg to 29mpg might not seem like a lot, but in my opinion it is significant. Just like horse power, every little counts. youtu.be/VUiGhyHC-1A
