People who grew up in the ‘90s probably recognize actor Damon Wayans from the TV shows he starred in such as In Living Color and My Wife and Kids, but nowadays he plays the role of Roger Murtaugh in the new Lethal Weapon TV series and he’s got a new Challenger Hellcat to along with his latest acting job.

Apparently unsatisfied with how the Dodge Hellcat came from the factory, Wayans enlisted the services of West Coast Customs (WCC) to perform a few modifications to his muscle car. If you didn’t already know, WCC is the California auto shop that was featured on MTV’s Pimp My Ride. Some of the equipment added to the actor’s Hellcat includes a custom red and black leather interior, new Oracle Halo Lighting, Matte Black racing stripes, and custom DKM badges, which represent the actor’s initials.

Underneath the hood, the new Challenger Hellcat comes equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that pumps out 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that powerful HEMI motor, the Hellcat can reach a top speed of 199 mph and zip from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, which is even more impressive when you consider the car’s curb weight of 4,469 pounds.

To go along with all of that power, each new Challenger Hellcat comes standard with advanced safety technology such as electronic stability control, all speed traction control, hill start assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross path detection.

Other celebrities who own Dodge Hellcats include NBA player Dwight Howard and TNT commentator Shaquille O’Neal.

It’s good to see the 56-year-old Wayans hasn’t gotten too old to keep a 707-horsepower Dodge Hellcat in the garage.
