The General Mayhem started out life on Roadkill as the empty shell of a 1968 Dodge Charger, minus a fender and all the bumper and grille parts. In what is still the longest time it took to film an episode of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger pulled the Mopar 440 big-block out of an old motorhome and shoved it into the Charger along with a bunch of swap meet parts. The result was worth every minute as the General Mayhem is just about everyone’s favorite car to ever come out of the show.

After a couple years of perfect off-road bombing bliss as the car Freiburger could live his Dukes of Hazzard dreams in, Dodge came knocking with an offer Roadkill couldn’t refuse. In 2015 Dodge was a sponsor of the show and wanted to put Richard Rawlings and the Gas Monkey Garage crew up against Roadkill in a Hellcat-powered grudge match (they have a bit of reputation for that), and the resultant race at the Silverdome in Auburn Hills, Michigan, is what became Roadkill Nights.

The reliable 707-hp Hellcat-swap transformed General Mayhem from a worn-out-beater-fun-car you’re not afraid to do anything with into arguably the best burnout machine in the Roadkill fleet, but Freiburger always felt it lost some of its magic. So he bought it back from MotorTrend and is putting the motorhome 440 back in! With help from Steve Dulcich, General Mayhem will also be getting some suspension and chassis upgrades, and all of that can be seen on this season of Roadkill Garage (but only if you subscribe to the MotorTrend App).

Everyone Wants General Mayhem, Now You Can Own it!

General Mayhem’s debut on Roadkill (episode 23) has 15+ million views. General Mayhem T-shirts sell better than any other Roadkill shirt. Dozens of copycats have duplicated the rattle-can black paint job, including two Mayhem-Charger clones. And Freiburger is aware of seven people who have tattoos of General Mayhem. Now it’s a limited-edition Hot Wheels® die-cast, and you can own it.

It’s more than just a regular Hot Wheels® car, too—the hood (scrap metal, of course) opens and the tires are made of real rubber! Freiburger will most likely never get rid of the real General Mayhem ever again, but you if you renew or subscribe to the MotorTrend App today you’ll receive a limited-edition Hot Wheels Roadkill General Mayhem and thousands of hours of the best automotive shows available ($44.99 for the bundle, valued at $80). The Hot Wheels® General Mayhem offer won’t last forever, so sign up or renew today!
